Newb needs help with Netflix

Post by NikoSilver » Sat Jan 09, 2016 7:27 pm

Hello
I have a UE55C8000XW.
I live in Athens, Greece.
Netflix started in Greece a few days ago.

My C-series TV has Netflix in the USA App Store, but not in the Greek store.

Unfortunately, the US version of Netflix does not work in Greece.
I only get a black screen. Probably it filters IP addresses or smthng.

Can anyone give me clear directions on how to install a WORKING Netflix App?

I am a complete newb with TVs, and I don't know Linux, but I'm an experienced PC user.

Edit: Any workaround also appreciated.

the netflix widget has not been updated since netflix was made available in europe, you could try to set up a vpn tunnel with endpoint in the u.s.

FYI: you can close your ssh session with SamyGO with

If you can't fix it using dvct tape, you are not using enough dvct tape.

Thank you very much for the info. I wish there was simpler way through a browser or something...

I wonder how Samsung accepts the insult of its clients resorting to using cheap accessories rather than making a small upgrade to a popular app such as NetFlix...
