Netflix features thousands of movies and TV shows as streaming video through its Watch Instantly service. Members watch video from Netflix on their computer or through a Netflix ready device, such as a Blu-ray player. LG is one of many Blu-ray player manufacturers that have included a Netflix app on its devices. To watch Netflix on an LG Blu-ray player, you will first have to activate the device on your Netflix account by using an Internet browser on your computer.

Turn on your LG Blu-ray player. Make sure it is connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi or a wired Ethernet cable.

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

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

Choose the "Movie" icon from the "Premium" selections, and then press "Enter" on the remote. Select the "Netflix" app, and press "Enter" on the remote.

Select the "Activate Instant Streaming from Netflix" link after the Netflix app loads on your LG Blu-ray player. An activation code will appear.

Open an Internet browser on your computer and visit netflix.com/activate. Log in to your account.

Type in the activation code from your LG Blu-ray player and click the "Activate" button. You can now access your Netflix Instant Queue from the Netflix app on your LG Blu-ray player.
