Methods to use if Netflix is not getting connected to your TV

Sometimes, Netflix can create trouble while connecting to your TV. Thus, there are various methods to fix this.

  • Start with basic troubleshooting

Before jumping to any conclusions regarding damage of your device or so, check for some basic troubleshooting. Some of which are:

  • Check if your Internet connection is working well or not. If the Internet connection is not working, detach the modem for a few seconds and then try connecting again. This might help with an increase in speed and a better connection.
  • Re-start your TV after you completely turn it off. This works a lot of times.
  • Look for any updates to be done; sometimes, an old version creates problems with the streaming.
  • You can also try clearing the application cache.
  • Restore your Netflix application

A lot of times, when an application doesn’t work on any device, we usually uninstall it and then install it after a few seconds. This refreshes your application and does not create any error further.

This only requires downloading the application and typing your login details again.

  • Make fixes on your Smart TV

If the basic troubleshooting fails to work, here are some fixes to be made on your Smart TV.

  • Turn off your TV for a few seconds and then turn it on. This will reset the device.

A hard reset is the last thing you should go for. But if any other trick isn’t working, this may help you fix your Netflix error. This reset will delete all the applications from your Smart TV and set it to its factory settings.
