Sorry if this has been addressed before but I downloaded the Netflix app, and I am already a Netflix subscriber. To watch instantly, the IPAD asks for an access code and says my device will instruct me how to get that.. the IPAD? Or do I get the code from Netflix? What am I missing here? Thanks!!!

    I only use Netflix on the iPad. I use my email address and password, the one I use to log into Nexflit web site. If that doesn't work for you either login to their site and see what's up or call them.

    You need to download the app to log into your account and to get instant on for movies working.

    Wait, are you just trying to watch instant Netflix movies on your iPad, or are you trying to use your iPad to wirelessly watch Netflix movies on your TV?

    The reason I'm asking is that Netflix ONLY asks for the access code when you set up your DVD/TV the first time for wireless viewing on your TV. To do that you must have the right device for wireless transmission (for example, I have a Panasonic Blu-Ray DVD and the special wireless receiver). You CAN'T use the iPad as the wireless receiver to do this.

    If however, you are simply trying to view the movies on your iPad directly, all you need is your Netflix username and password. No access codes are needed.
