Frequently Asked Questions

Click Menu, then Options, and then Switch Profile. Use the Previous Profile and Next Profile buttons to go to the profile you want to select. Once there, click Select Profile.

You can set up a default profile. If you have one, the app will take you directly to that profile, skipping the selection phase. Click Menu, then Options, and then Switch Profile. Use the Previous Profile and Next Profile buttons to go to the profile you want to set as your default. Once there, click Set as Default. Click Select Profile to enter this profile.

The only button that will work on Netflix Home, before any item is selected, is the Play button, which allows you to play the movie / series that is running at the top of the page. Use the arrows to select the first item, and then all buttons will work.

The Kids button on the Netflix Menu works well only if there is a Kid’s profile in the account. A kid’s profile is defined in your Netflix account, outside of Accessible Netflix. Once such profile is defined, the Kids button will take you to that profile, and will provide kids navigation capabilities. It is recommended to define a default kids’ profile.

If you clicked Kids and there is no Kids’ profile in the account, you need to click the Kids Menu and select Exit Kids.

The Genres button works only if you are in TV Shows or in Movies since Netflix supports browsing by genre only in these categories.

  1. If you are in in one of these two categories and you click Genres, the genres window will open on the browser side, and using the buttons on the left side will allow you to navigate to a specific genre and then select it.
  2. If you are in another category (Latest, My List…) and you clicked Genres by mistake, simply hit Close to go back to the Netflix Menu.

Season and Episodes works only on TV Shows, where there are seasons and episodes.

Opens all the items that belong to the line that you are on (My List, Recommended, etc.).
