But what if you prefer to watch Netflix on a bigger screen, like the TV in your living room? There are five popular ways you could do that.
Watch Netflix on a smart TV
These days, many large flat screen televisions double as "smart TVs" — they come with a built-in media player that lets you connect to popular video services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and many others via on-screen apps.
If you have a smart TV, all you need to do is subscribe to Netflix and log in via the app on your TV.
Watch Netflix using a streaming media player like Roku
You don’t need a smart TV, because you can turn any television that has an HDMI input into the equivalent of a smart TV using a media streaming device.
Watch Netflix on a gaming console like PS4
Gaming consoles work very much like a Roku or similar streaming device; when you’re tired of games, you can log into Netflix via the on-screen app.
