How to Reset Netflix Instant Streaming to a TV

If your network connection is interrupted as you are watching a Netflix video streaming to your TV, the interruption can stop the Netflix application. Unlike watching a video stream on a computer, you cannot click a “Refresh” button to restart the stream if a problem arises on your TV. To reset the Netflix video stream, you have to restart the Netflix application. The process you used to initially access the Netflix video you are watching is the same process used to restart the Netflix application. This process varies depending up which Netflix-ready device you are using.
