    Ok so I called Netflix and it isn't our internet connection (although we're not in a brilliant spot for Internet). We got Netflix with our new Samsung TV and the Netflix support guy said that they are having some teething issues getting it to work properly with the new samsungs. He said to turn the TV off at the wall and on again, then it will work. I just tried and it worked. So there you go!

    You don't actually need to spend $1000's on a new smart TV if you have an existing laptop or computer close by to your TV. You just need a connector cable to go through a HDMI cable to your TV. We're just in the habit now of turning on the laptop and it's ready to watch as soon as we've done that. Just leave the cables in again for next time. We have had no problems with watching Netflix this way and have broadband with iiNet.

    We have Netflix and love it (especially for kids). We had just bought a smart TV (just a cheap one through Kogan), so thought it would be great to have Netflix on the TV - but unfortunately the Netflix app is not compatible with the Kogan TV and from what I hear some other TVs can't play it either. I just got a Chromecast from JB and it allows us to cast Netflix from the iPad onto the TV. Works great.

    That's good to know as we've got a Samsung too. Will give it a go.

    Maybe a different model. Who knows! Technology is a PITA sometimes.

    I was just coming to post this. You can even do it with much older TVs and laptops but the cords can be a bit expensive compared to a HDMI connection.

    Netflix here! Loving it, about the only thing we watch on regular TV now is ABC kids & the news.
    We have an older TV & got an Apple TV, we rent movies through iTunes sometimes so needed something compatible with both iTunes & Netflix.
    It comes with a remote so you don't have to get up to press pause on the computer (first world problem I know!)
