Netflix?

We just purchased the airstream international serenity 27FB. When we went through our walk-through of the gentleman pulled up Netflix. With two little ones we would like to be able to find this feature again. Iíve read through the manuals and Iíve played around with the TV for hours. Can anyone help me locate the Netflix icon?
Ours has the CLARiON system, Blu-ray player and Samsung TV.

Netflix is an app on your DVD player.

Turn on the TV, select HDMI source. Turn on the DVD player. Using the DVD player remote you can navigate to netflix.

You will need to connect the DVD player to a wireless network to make it work.

Personally, I use an Apple TV to get Netflix and other online content.

Good luck!

Thank you so much!! I found it!! I’m trying to set up the Internet through Settings. The only option I have is to hardwire the internet? How do you get around this?

Unfortunate, yes, the Samsung DVD player requires a wired Ethernet connection.

I donít use it, rather, I use an Apple TV.

To get internet to the DVD player, at a minimum you will need to buy a WiFi router, that has WiFi-wan capabilities.

I use a pepwave soho, and recommend it.

I replaced the DVD player with the similar model that had wifi. I can get Netflix using a cell phone hotspot.

Netflix

On our 2017 23D we just stuck a "Firestick" into the TV. It is an Amazon product. Takes about 10 minutes to set up. Wherever your staying, if they have WIFI, you can get Netflix. Works great. About $40.00. I am sure there are other solutions but this works well for us.

Streaming movies on the park WIFI...ÖÖ. that's why park WIFIs are so pitiful. They are over loaded.

Netflix at RV parks

We are always careful with our Netflix use. We always ask ahead of time if we are allowed to stream Netflix. We are currently at Land Yacht Harbor in Melbourne, Florida for the winter. Yes, they have WIFI at the recreation hall only. So we had Charter Spectrum install Internet and cable TV in our AS. Not everyone is as rude as you imply.


We stayed at TOP of Georgia (Airstream Park) last summer and had no problem with Netflix. The park has very good WIFI.

The Apps are found on the Samsung TV. Here's a link that should help you get going.

We use our smartphone as hotspot modems and run Netflix on our Roku. Don’t try and use the campsite Wifi. They are generally terrible and will not work well. My suggestion is get a weboost for your cell phone to get better signal, get an unlimited data plan on cell, and use that. And if you are traveling a lot you may want to consider satellite systems for internet or a dedicated wifi modem wireless data plan.

Also if you get a ROKU or APPLE TV you have a host of other viewing options. Happy Camping.

They are not overloaded, rather, they are under provisioned because parks do not pay the $$$ necessary for high bandwidth connection end to end to your radio device.

I have 1 gigabit service at home. In my house I can stream 1,666 Netflix sessions simultaneously at standard definition.

Parks donít have the revenue to cover the overhead of a proper WiFi network, so you get what you get with old 2.4ghz channels, towers that are too far away, low quality antennas, limited radio channels, channel bandwidth restrictions, and most importantly a pipe from the brick & mortar-housed modem to the internet that is too small.

Itís not that streaming Netflix uses a lot of bandwidth.

Heck - on LTE cell phone hotspot you can stream between 10 and 20 simultaneous standard definition Netflix sessions with 3 or 4 bars of coverage.......

Iíve totally given up on parks WiFi. They are useless. I use LTE cellular internet exclusively. Rarely do I not get 5-15Mbps of bandwidth with my Sure Call antenna and weboost 50db gain powered replicator.....

Imo it is about gotta pay to play. One must be willing to pay the bucks for amenities. I just checked and Tiger Run in Breckenridge is running $70 plus a night depending on the site location and season. I have been there (no choice as my kid rode the Breck Epic) and they have the wifi service to support what you want to do. So good wifi does exist, just have to be willing to pay the price of entry to get it.
So you pay the price of entry at the campground or determine cost benefit and pay the price doing your own system. Gets back to the notion of no such thing as a free lunch, or you get what you pay for, etc.

You can also download at home Netflix shows to your IPAD or other devise. Then connect to TV. Way faster and cheaper. And you donít use up data.
