How to Get Netflix to Load on Boxee
By Stephen Lilley
Netflix is a popular online movie rental service. In exchange for a small fee each month you can have DVDs mailed directly to your home or stream a library of movies and television shows through the Netflix video-on-demand service that is included with your regular membership fee. You can get Netflix instant streaming on Boxee, a popular media center software designed for use with televisions.
Log into your Boxee membership account at Boxee.tv From here, you'll need to add Netflix support to your existing account by using the member services page.
Turn on the Boxee-enabled device that is connected to your home television and load the Boxee software.
Use your remote control to access the "Netflix" application from the main menu. From here you can log into your Netflix account and view the movies listed in your Netflix Instant Queue. You may be prompted to pair your Boxee device to your Netflix account. If your device presents you with a pass code, log into your Netflix membership account at Netflix.com and click on "Your Account" at the top of the screen. Next, select the "Your Netflix Ready Devices and Computers" button and click on "Activate a Device." Enter the pass code provided by your Boxee into the box listed to register your device with Netflix. You can then view all of the movies available in your Netflix Instant Queue.
- Note that Netflix Instant Streaming is not available to Boxee users running the Linux operating system on their home computers.
