Let’s have a look at different ways how to watch your Netflix Content on your Apple TV.
Watch NetFlix on your Apple TV using AirPlay
Download the official NetFlix App in the App store. It supports AirPlay. All you have to do is activate it using the button with the AirPlay symbol.
There’s also a note in the Netflix help about the iOS version:
With iOS 6, only Airplay mirroring is supported. With iOS 7 and 8, only Airplay (non-mirroring) is supported.
But seems like in the meantime, the requirements have changed because the latest version of the App requires iOS 7!
Using the video out for Netflix
You can also use a compatible Apple-specific cable connection kits in order to direct output your video signal (like described in the article about Amazon Prime streaming).
Native NetFlix App on Apple TV
Just in case you haven’t seen it: Another easy way to watch Netflix content is the Netflix App on your Apple TV home screen.
