LG smart televisions are completely compatible with Netflix video in both standard and 4K streams. LG televisions that do not have Internet capability require a media streamer such as a Roku or Apple TV device to access Netflix. Some older LG devices may not show all available Netflix menus.
Netflix and LG partnered to make the pre-installed Netflix app accessible through the television's Netcast menu. Selection of the Netflix app and subsequent entry of the provided device activation code unlocks the device for movie viewing. As of 2015, some LG smart televisions do not have Wi-Fi capability and require users to connect an Ethernet cable to the home's router.
