    I tried this before I contacted you but after I select Network, there is no option for Advanced Features! Any other ideas? Ben ( thanks for trying)

As per Sony Support, this is a two step process :-

Before you can register with Netflix, 2 things need to have happened:
1) You need to get the device connected to the internet, I'm going to assume that you've done this part already.

2) You have to register the device with a Sony program called "My essentials" before attempting to register or use Netflix. It's a two part process using the BluRay player AND using the computer:

sing your device remote control, navigate to the Network section of the Xross Media Bar menu (XMB™) menu on your device to get your My Essentials Registration Code.

Using the supplied remote, press the HOME button.
Using the right arrow or left arrow, select Network

Using the up arrow or down arrow, select Activate Enhanced Features.
Press the Select button

to begin the activation.
Once the activation is complete the Registration Code will appear.
Write down the Registration Code.
Using your computer, register your Sony device at the My Essentials web site.
Using your computer, go to
If prompted, select your country and language and click Continue. Otherwise, skip to the next step.
Login to the My Essentials site:

(If you have a My Essentials or Sony Style account)
Enter your email address and password and click Go.
Skip to step 4 below.

(If you do not have a My Essentials or Sony Style account)
Click the "New to My Essentials?" link which will send you to the Sony Style Registration screen.
Enter an email address and password, and click Submit.
If not automatically redirected, click your browser back button to return to the My Essentials site.
Enter your registered email address and password and click Go.
Select your device type, enter your My Essentials Product Registration code, and click Continue.
A confirmation screen will appear and a message will be sent to your email address.
Open this email message and click the embedded link to confirm your registration with the My Essentials web site.
Continue with the section below. (Which is register with Netflix)

Registering with Netflix

Registering with Netflix:
Register your device and select your movies on the Netflix web site

You must either already have or create a Netflix account (free trial offer) and will need to register your device to it.
Using your device remote control, navigate to the Video section of the device menu to get your Netflix Registration Code.

Using the supplied remote, press the HOME button.
Using the right arrow or left arrow , select Video

Using the up arrow or down arrow, select the Netflix channel

Press the Select button

At the prompt, select "Yes" if you are already a Netflix member or "No" if you are not.
Note: If you are not a member, you will also need to select "Yes" at the "Ready to Get Started" prompt to subscribe to Netflix services.
Write down the 4-character Registration Code that appears.

Go to the Netflix web site to register your device with an account.

Using your computer, open a web browser and go to to setup a Netflix account.
In the "Start Your Free Trial" section, enter your email address, a password and your Netflix Registration Code (in the Sony Code box), and click Continue.

A message will appear on your TV screen telling you to go to the Netflix web site to add movies to your Instant Queue.
Using your computer, open a web browser and go to and login into your account.
At the "Activate Your Netflix Device" screen, enter your Netflix Registration Code and click the Activate button

    Thanks for your response!!

    Opps, i am sorry - i didn't gather the complete details.According to Netflex's website :-

    and a few other sources I checked on the internet -- This device does
    not support streaming from Netflix. The cheapest solution appears to be
    the Roku Player if you are needing to do so.

    There are many places where the same issue has been explained.

    Thanks and Regards

SOURCE: I just bought a Samsung BD P1590 Blue ray Disc

if you have the netflix logo on the player then connect a cat5 cable from your router to the back of your player to hook it to the internet. It will download an update with your approval if its a success then your TV connect to anynet which will load then display if you would like to search youtube, anynet, netflix, or blockbuster. Select netflix and it will go through a series of legal stuff. press next, next, next and then it will give you a code screen displayed on the tv. Go to your computer and access your netflix account and you should see the tab labeled " instantly to your tv" Follow the instructions and it will give you a code which you will then have to enter on your tv. If you see movies displayed then you did it right and its connected. The quality depends on your network connection. Me, I have basic and its ok
