How to Stream Netflix on LG Wi-Fi

Updated July 19, 2017

Netflix offers thousands of movies and TV shows as streaming video through the "Watch Instantly" service. Videos can be streamed to a computer or a Netflix-ready device, such as an LG Blu-ray player. These players can connect to the Internet through any Wi-Fi network and stream movies through a Netflix app included on the device. However, you must set up the Wi-Fi connection and activate the Blu-ray player on your Netflix account before you can enjoy the streaming video titles from the Watch Instantly library.

Press the "Home" button on your LG Blu-ray player. Select "Setup" and press the "Enter" key on the remote.

Select the "Connection Setting" option with your remote and press the "Enter" key on the remote.

Select "Wireless" from the "Connection Setting" menu. Wait for the LG Blu-ray player to find all the available Wi-Fi networks in your area.

Choose your Wi-Fi router from the list of available networks. You may have to enter a WEP or WPA security key, if enabled on your router.

Select "Dynamic" from the connection options that appear, then select "OK" and press "Enter" on your remote. The player will test your Internet connection. After it is finished, you can proceed to set up Netflix.

Press the "Home" button on your LG Blu-ray player remote.

Select "Premium" from the on-screen display and press "Enter" on the remote.

Select the "Movie" folder and press "Enter" on the remote. Choose the "Netflix" app and press "Enter" again.

Select the "Activate Instant Streaming from Netflix" link from the main screen of the Netflix app. A confirmation code will appear.

Open an Internet browser on your computer and visit Log in to your account.

Click the "Your Account and Help" link at the top right corner of the Netflix home page.

Click "Activate a Netflix Ready Device" under the heading, "Watching Instantly on Your TV or Computer.''

Enter the activation code from your LG Blu-ray player in the text box and click the "Activate" button. Your Netflix Watch Instantly account can now be accessed from your LG Blu-ray player.
