The Ultimate Guide to Watching Netflix on TV
Method 2: Use a Set-Top Box to Stream Internet Media
There are tons of set-top boxes available in the market you can use to stream Netflix on your TV. Some of the most popular ones include Fetch TV, Apple TV, Telstra TV, Nexus Player, Google’s Chromecast, and the new Chromecast Ultra. If you are already signed up for the service, these boxes let you stream your content from Netflix without much hassle. Just connect your box to the TV, to the Internet (which can be done wirelessly if the option is available), and switch on your device. You’re ready to flick through Netflix channels.
Method 3: Use Your Gaming Console
Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Wii U game consoles can provide you access to Netflix at just a push of a button. So, if you have one, you are already on your way to enjoying Netflix on your TV. If you don’t, however, but you want to watch Netflix on your TV and you enjoy playing games, then we suggest purchasing one!
Having one of these consoles is a streamlined way to access Netflix on the big screen. Chances are that if you have one, it will already be connected to both the TV of your choice and the internet. Most modern consoles come with the Netflix app already installed – making unlimited entertainment that much easier to access. In cases where it isn’t already installed, you can simply download it for free from your console provider’s app store. That way you have easy Netflix access, and can also play all the games you like!
The arrival of 4K TVs in many lounge rooms has been met by a steadily increasing demand, as of November 2017, for Netflix’s top-end 4K plan – but you’ll need a device that can actually stream Netflix in 4K to take advantage of it. Luckily, Netflix has updated its apps for devices that support 4K streaming, such as the new Apple TV 4K, the Telstra TV 2 and many 4K smart TVs.
There you go, folks. Hopefully, by now you have a fairly clear picture of how to watch Netflix on the large screen of your TV to enhance the entertainment.
