PIL want Netflix after being wowed by ours grin

They want it on their tv as opposed to a laptop. Tv is not a smart but only a few years old with HDMI sockets etc.

I'm not tech either but am somehow in charge of making this happen.

Is there a stick I can buy them or do they need an Apple TV box or?!

What's the cheapest easiest way to do this?!

Firestick would be the easiest and they are still on special on Amazon. It has Netflix on as an app so they just need a subscription

Assuming they have WiFi internet then get a Roku Express stick - they were going for £20 in the Black Friday sales. Interface is v user friendly. You just need to set up a Roku account (free and easy) then choose which ‘apps’ to have on the home screen. Netflix obvs, plus they might like iplayer, channel 4 catch up etc. It plugs into the hdmi and charges via usb socket or wall plug.

Amazon Firestick also a good idea if they have amazon prime, but obviously tries to lead you to get everything via Amazon so not quite so good if they don’t.

Isn't it going to be cheaper if you just.let them dial in on yours and you just pay the extra.
