How to Sign Up for a Netflix Account
How to Get Netflix
Netflix is one of the most popular paid streaming services on the internet, and allows you to stream a wide variety of movies and TV shows to your computer, TV, or mobile device. Getting a Netflix account only takes a few minutes, and the basic streaming service allows you to watch anything available on the service on any device.
Getting a Netflix Subscription
Visit the Netflix website.Although most devices that support Netflix allow you to create an account through that device, you will generally find it faster and easier to create your account on a computer.
- Netflix is not available in all areas. If Netflix is unavailable in your region, click here.
- If you want to subscribe to the Netflix DVD delivery service in the US, visitdvd.netflix.com. The sign up process is very similar to the streaming service.
Click the "Start Your Free Month" button.All memberships start with a one month trial. It will require entering in payment information, but if you cancel your membership within the first month you will not be charged.
Create an account.Creating an account simply requires entering your email address and creating a password. You can also create an account using your Facebook account, which can be useful if you're trying to keep your online accounts to a minimum.
Choose your plan.There are three streaming plans that you can choose from:
Enter your billing information.You will need to enter your credit card and billing information. You can also use PayPal to pay. You need to enter a valid card, as Netflix will charge after the trial period is complete.
- If you are signing up for the DVD rental service, make sure that you enter your mailing address correctly so that you receive your DVDs.
Check the boxes for the devices you plan to use.This won't have much bearing on your service, but gives Netflix information about where people are watching from. You can still connect to devices that you don't select on this page.
Rate the sample selection.You will be shown a selection of titles from the Netflix library. Select three titles that you enjoy. This will help Netflix determine which titles they recommend for you. As you continue picking titles to watch later on, Netflix will adjust your recommendations, so don't worry too much about what you pick right now.
- Use the Netflix DVD website to set the order that you want to receive your DVDs in. You can adjust the list and add new titles whenever you'd like. When you send a DVD back, the next DVD on the list will be sent to you.
Watching Streaming Video
Watch on the Netflix website.You can log into the Netflix website and watch directly from your computer. Use the search bar to find specific titles, or browse the different categories. You can use any web browser. You will be prompted to install the Microsoft Silverlight plugin if it is not installed already.
- If you are trying to watch Netflix from a region that doesn't support it, click here.
Watch Netflix on your phone or tablet.You can log into Netflix on your mobile device by downloading the free Netflix app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Streaming Netflix videos on a cellular data connection can eat through your data allotment quickly, so be careful when watching and roaming.
Watch Netflix on another device.Netflix is available on more and more devices. Many Smart TVs and Blu-ray players come with a Netflix app installed, set-top boxes like Apple TV and Roku support Netflix, and most gaming consoles have a Netflix app available as well.
- The process varies from device to device, but generally you will just need to download the Netflix app and log in with your account.
