- Samsung Smart TV / Netflix
Just recently started a trial with Netflix. I’m using it through the PS3, but I read that there is an app available for Samsung TVs. I looked through all the available apps on Smart Hub but it’s not there. It was supposed to be available from January ’12, I got the TV a few months before that.
I can’t find a way to do a software update as I though it may just need updating(assumed it would do this automatically).
It’s always plugged directly in to the router and works fine with LoveFilm. Any ideas?

I’m sure it just needs an update, but I’m buggered if I can work out how to do that. Can’t see anything on line that doesn’t involve using a USB stick and a PC, which seems silly for updating a device that’s connected to the internet. I’m assuming these updates should just happen automatically.Posted 5 years agogrumMember
I’m probably getting boring going on about this but if you use Netflix it’s well worth trying this.
The film selection on the Canadian one is so much better.Posted 5 years ago
This http://gonedigital.net/2012/01/12/netflix-arrives-on-uk-samsung-smarttv/ suggests that you might need to do a firmware update to the TV before Netflix can be installed ( separate from updating Smart Hub ).
If that doesn’t work, give Netflix a call and I’m sure they will help you.Posted 5 years agoCougarSubscriber
As an aside,
I went to watch LoveFilm Instant on my Blu-ray player last night.
What a bloody palaver. Bearing in mind I’ve already set this up once, tied it to my account and so on. Everything’s changed.
So I need to register my BD player online with Sony, which I’ve already done, so it tells me it’s registered when it isn’t. Instructions on Sony’s website tell me where the options are on a TV, which bear no resemblance to the player. Forums suggest I need to ring Sony to get it deregistered. What? No.
Finally sussed that I need a “Sony Entertainment Network” login rather than a “Sony Essentials” login. Then had to import my old account into the new one. Worked out that the registration bit is, intuitively, under “Quoricity” or some such, but had to reboot the player twice to get it to stop throwing an error and give me a code. Once registered, I’d then to go to the website and ‘activate premium content’ (and no, you can’t have my credit card details), then log in to my LF account. Then, finally, the player needs another restart to pick up the registration.
Gods damned thing. I have a LF subscription and a LF-compatible player, why on earth are they so anal about ‘authorised devices’? Whole process took me about 40 minutes, I could’ve torrented the movie (and watched half of it) in the time it took me to get it going.
“Home piracy is killing the movie industry” my eye. Stupid over-convoluted ‘protection’ is driving people to piracy. It shouldn’t be harder to watch something legitimately than illegally, FFS.Posted 5 years agoSkillWillMember
Old thread resurrection…
Have the same problem as OP. Have done a firmware update but still don’t see a Netflix app. Samsung UE40D5500. I can get the app to appear if I change my location to US (although it doesn’t work), but then all other apps are US-centric.
Wondered if anyone managed to get it working?Posted 4 years ago
Do the plug in Android computers / Raspberry Pi support Netflix ?
update- seems it might be possible with XBMC ( http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:XBMC_Flicks_-_Netflix_for_XBMC )Posted 4 years ago
