How to watch Netflix on the Apple TV
The Apple TV currently in its 4th Generation but the third generation is still on sale and performs just as well when displaying Netflix. It also costs $100 less ($100 instead of $200).
In our review, we wrote that "Dolby Vision concerns aside, the new Apple TV 4K can squeeze the most out of the latest televisions. Google and Amazon offer 4K rivals, but if your lounge room is blessed with a Ultra HD screen and is wedded to the Apple ecosystem then this is the streaming box for you."
Once you've plugged in the Apple TV and signed into your iTunes account you're looking at a screen with apps installed. If for any reason Netflix isn't already there, go to the App Store icon and search for Netflix there.
Once it's downloaded and installed you can sign in to your account and choose a profile to use. Profiles can be handy if you're sharing your account with family or friends as it means you won't have kids cartoons as your recommended viewing and your kids won't have whatever content you enjoy being suggested to them!
