How to Activate Netflix Streaming Movies on VIZIO Internet Apps

By J.M. Chanel

Netflix offers thousands of movies and TV shows as streaming video through the "Watch Instantly" service. Netflix members can stream an unlimited amount of video from the Netflix library with their computer or a Netflix-ready device, such as an HDTV or Blu-ray player from VIZIO. Currently, VIZIO offers a Netflix player as one of the "Internet Apps" included on their devices. However, before you watch Netflix on a VIZIO Blu-ray player or HDTV, you have to activate the device to your Netflix account.
