Hi Delores, yor image shows an iPhone; however, you must connect to your Netflix account with you Wii console.

Do you have wireless internet connection for your Wii? Do you have an established Netflix account? If so, then to download Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii you must go to the Wii Shop Channel.

  1. Select the Wii Shop Channel on the Wii Menu and select "Start."

  2. If you haven't already been to the Wii Shop Channel, you will need to read and agree to the User Agreement.
  3. A screen will appear asking you if you want to link a Club Nintendo account to your Wii Shop account.

    • If you do not have a Club Nintendo Membership, leave the fields blank and select "Skip."
  4. Select "Start Shopping" to continue to the Wii Shop Channel main menu.
  5. Select "Wii Channels" from the Wii Shop Channel main menu, then select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii." Select "Free 0 Wii Points."
  6. Select either the "Wii System Memory" or an "SD Card" as the download location. I'd suggest System Memory for Netflix.
  7. Select "OK," then "Yes" to download the channel.
  8. A screen will appear with Mario running across the screen and three blocks. Mario will hit the blocks as the download progresses.
  9. Once Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii has finished downloading, it will appear on the Wii menu.

Cant connect my Wii to the internet for net flix viewing


Netflix has come a long way since 1997.
What began as a disc-based mail-order rental service has become one of the pioneers of digital distribution.
Netflix's digital distribution service offers thousands of movies and televisions shows that users can watch instantly from a variety of devices, such as the iPhone, PC and the Nintendo Wii.
Netflix is not available immediately on your Wii when you first turn it on; you must download the program from Nintendo's Wii Shop before you can begin using it.

Select the "Wii Shop" channel on the Wii's main menu and choose "Start."
Select "Start Shopping" and choose "Wii Channels."

Select "Netflix Instant Streaming for Wii."
Select "Free 0 Wii Points" to begin the download.
Choose the location where you will save Netflix.
You can select either the Wii System Memory or an SD card.

Select "OK" and select "Yes."
Your download will begin, and a Netflix channel will appear on the Wii's main menu.

Select the "Netflix" channel, located on the Wii's main menu, and choose "Start" to launch Netflix. The first-time setup screen will appear.
Select "Yes" to indicate you are a current Netflix subscriber.
If you are not, you cannot use the service until you sign up at the Netflix website.

Enter your Netflix email address and password. Select "Continue."
Select a television show or movie in any category to begin watching it instantly.
