STREAMING NETFLIX MOVIES – FOR SENIORS

April 9th, 2012 · No Comments · Family and Friends, Technology

I was told that my Facebook for Seniors Post was very helpful so here’s another. This time it’s about Netflix.

The Situation:

Mom wants to watch Richard Gere in Double, or Martin Scorsese’s Hugo. Perhaps Hilary Swank or the Charlie Sheen Roast? Regardless she was getting tired of running to the video store every time she wanted to see a movie (much less paying a couple of bucks each time). So we signed up for the free Netflix trial (the one time you want to see those annoying pop ups from the Undertone Network that don’t go away).

She needed an interface for her television (only the latest models have the wireless access built in), so we selected the D-Link MovieNite Streaming Media Player (DSM-310). These are the same guys who make the routers. You’ll know if it will work if it has the Netflix Logo on it (along with YouTube and Vudu, etc.). In other words it’s Netflix approved.

Here are some simple step by step instructions on how to use the box. Below you will also find a link to a video on YouTube.
