Netflix users can use a notebook to pair service videos with their TVs. For this to work, both devices must have HDMI connectivity, so Netflix content can be viewed on devices other than Smart TVs. For questions about how to register on the site and pair your notebook with the HDMI input, follow the tutorial.
Step 1. Visit the Netflix page and click on “Start your free month”.
Step 2. Enter an e-mail address and a password. This data will function as your login to the service.
Step 3. Define a Netflix monthly payment method. Then click “Start Signing.”
Step 4. Confirm your membership in Netflix by clicking “Continue”.
Step 5. On this page, the service suggests that the new user create user profiles. This feature is ideal so that Netflix can suggest titles from your catalog according to the preferences of each member of the family. The platform allows up to five profiles to be created. When you finish this process, click “Continue.”
Step 6. Define the devices you will use Netflix on and click “Done”.
Step 7. Enter five titles in the list that you like and click “Continue.” This step is important so that the Netflix system creates recommendations in your profile that are according to your personal taste.
Step 8. Your profile was successfully created and you can already search titles in the Netflix catalog.
Connecting the notebook to the TV to watch Netflix
Step 1. Connect one HDMI cable to the notebook and the other end to the HDMI input of the TV.
Step 2. On the TV, enable the display of the HDMI input on which the notebook was connected.
Step 3. Hover over one of the titles and click on the play icon to start streaming the video.
Step 4. The title will be loaded and then played back on the TV. However, the TV will display your browser’s video and window. To resolve this and enter the full-screen preview mode, click the corresponding icon.
Step 5. Now the video will be displayed in full screen on your TV. To return to the previous view, press “Esc” on the notebook’s keyboard.
Configuring screen mirroring in a notebook
Step 1. Open a Windows window and click “Open Control Panel”.
Step 2. Under “Appearance and Personalization,” click the “Adjust the screen resolution” option.
Step 3. Under “Multiple videos”, you can define important screen-mirroring features. If you want both the notebook and the TV to display the Netflix images, leave the “Duplicate these videos” option checked. However, if you want only the TV to display the image and the screen is turned off, click “Show desktop only in 2”.
Ready! With these tips, you can take advantage of the connection possibilities of your notebook to watch Netflix videos on your TV.
