SOURCE: the Netflix app on my

I had the same problem with my Vizio XVT473SV. I couldn't find the Netflix Activation Code. When I clicked on the Netflix App, the TV would ask me if I wanted to connect to Netflix, then it would ask me if I was a Netflix member. After clicking yes to both, it would tell me it couldn't connect to the Netflix server, check with Netflix.com/tvhelp. After a couple hours of troubleshooting, the solution was......your first use of the Netflix App has to be via the Ethernet Port/Cable. This will give you a screen with the Activation Code, after you activate the code in your Netflix account, you can go back to using WiFi on your Vizio TV to connect to Netflix. Step by step instructions are...
1) Exit the Vizio Netflix App.
2) Physically connect an Ethernet cable to your broadband (just temporarily)
3) Check to make sure the Vizio is using the Ethernet port and not your WiFi (Apps Button - HDTV Settings - Network...may have to reboot the TV to get Ethernet port connection)
4) Start the Vizio Netflix App
5) Click OK to start the Netflix App
6) You should now see a different screen that gives you the Netflix Activation Code.
7) On your Computer, Login in to Netflix,
8) Click on "Your Account & Help" link on upper right corner
9) Scroll down to Watching Instantly on your TV or Computer section
10) Click on Activate a Netflix Ready Device
11) Enter the Activation Code shown on your Vizio TV and click Activate
12) Once your Netflix account (on your computer) shows it is active, your Vizio TV will automatically log in. You should see your Instant Queue.
13) Exit the Netflix App, unplug the Ethernet cable, Turn Off your Vizio TV.
14) After 20 seconds or so (remember the TV is software driven), turn the TV back on and your WiFi should connect again.
15) Use your Netflix App and this time it should automatically connect via WiFi
note: just make sure that your wireless DSL/Cable Modem or Wireless Router is not blocking your WiFi connection request from the Vizio. You can check the connection status in the modem/router or in the Vizio in the HDTV Settings - Network.

We are paying for netflix. How do we get it on our television? Our television is connected to comcast and we have wifi?


But is your TV a "Smart TV"? That means does the TV connect to the internet. Just because you have Comcast connected to your TV doesn't mean it is getting an internet signal. The black coax to the TV only carries a TV signal.
To get internet service to your TV first you have to determine if it is capable. If it does have a wireless receiver in it, you will have to configure it to attach to your wireless base station. If it doesn't have a wireless adapter you will have to connect a network cable from the base station into the TV and then configure it to work with your network. Once you have that internet signal working on your TV you will be able to use Netflix on your TV.

I have remote smart tv with netflix button but can;t get straming to load help


You have to initiate a wi fi connection to your wireless router or you can use a wired connection if that is feasible. If you connect wirelessly go to the wireless setup page on your router and enable MAC filtering, then select allow only devices on list. Next obtain the MAC address of your TV. You should be able to get that from the setup internet connection section of the setup menu. Enter that address in the MAC filter list on your router. Save it and try the connection again.

I have Netflix on my upstairs Vizio smart TV, but for some reason will not connect on my downstairs Vizio smart TV? Please help.


First thing I would check is Internet connection on the smart tv that won't connect. If that doesn't work try downloading new software for Netflix. Try those and see what happens.

Do you have to have cable tv to have netflix?


No, you do not have to have Cable TV in order to get the Netflix service. However, in order to watch Netflix you basically need to have an internet connection preferable of decent speed. You will also need a supported device that will let you watch Netflix.

The internet speed will ultimately determine whether you get quality video output on the device you intended to watch Netflix.

You can watch Netflix on your computer or you can use a device (generally now called a media device) that will allow for you to watch Netflix on your TV.

The Netflix app comes on many different media devices, which you essentially plug to you TV and connect to your home Internet connection.

Newer TV have the Netflix app built in to them as well as Internet. These TVs are referred to as Smart TV.

Right of the top of my head are the following Netflix capable devices Xbox 360, Roku, Wii...

Here are a list of other supported devices on Netflix's Website:

How do i get netflix on my tv


You need a Netflix ready TV, Blu-ray player, Tivo, or some other Netflix ready device. There you will see a Netflix offered as dock button, network button, or something. Netflix requires a connection to the Internet, wireless or wired to the Netflix ready device. You will get a code from the Netflix device on your TV screen that you have to enter into your Netflix Web account you paid for.

Need help adding Netflix on my VIZIO tv


Make sure you have a smart TV (has the netflix App preloaded). Then make sure your TV is connected to the internet via wired or wireless. Once this is complete bring up the vizio menu (hit the V button on the remote) and then you can open the Netflix app and sign in. If you do not have a "smart tv" then you will need some other device like a PS3, Wii or other to access netflix.
