How to Install Netflix to a Computer

If you have an Internet connection and a Windows computer, you can watch Netflix movies and TV shows in your browser. If this is not your preferred way to watch Netflix, some Windows 7 users can install and watch Netflix in Windows Media Center, which is the default program to watch DVDs and TV on Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate editions.
