6 Ways to Stream Netflix Videos to Your HDTV

Today, there are several different ways available to stream Netflix videos to where you really want them – on your HDTV!  To help you out, all available options are discussed below.

Each of these options has its own strengths, weaknesses, costs, and convenience, therefore making it somewhat tricky to find out which option would best suit your needs. To help you out, all available options are discussed below.


1. Computers


Netflix videos can be streamed to your HDTV from a computer. All you have to do is connect them directly by using an HDMI cable. Simply plug one end of the cable into the HDMI slot of your HDTV, and the other end in your computer or laptop. After the connection is secured, all the activity that takes place on your computer is mirrored by your TV, allowing you to watch your favourite Netflix videos on a bigger screen.

Download the Netflix app on your console, start the app, log into your Netflix account with the appropriate details, select from the wide selection of movies and TV shows, and you are good to go.


3. Blu-Ray Players


Blu-Ray players are some of the most convenient and affordable ways to stream Netflix movies and TV shows on their HDTV. So, when you are getting one, make sure it is compatible with Netflix.
