its really not that hard wow funny what ppl will write about :-) i have been using Netflix since PSN went down.. Besides playing games i watch movies..
A lot of people don't know. It took me at least a full day to hear about how to get it to work.
At the title menu... Press up,up,down,down,left,rite,left , rite, B,A, start!! ;-)
I did it eminently when the PSN went down. All you do it try to log into the PSN twice, it can't twice and your good. Theres really no trick just be persistent.
no i was using mine before fine, after 2 tries it would work but, now it asks me to sign in when it starts to load a movie. When it cant a message says psn connection is required, or some bs, and kicks me back to netfix's homescreen. This happened after i used my netfix on a separate PS3
Its weird I can access netflix on my fat ps3, but every time I try to do it on my slim it won't let me. I get the network error do it two more times then it lets me choose which show I want (but instead on working normally like it does on my fat) I get the same network errors over and over and it won't stop.
Netflix doesnt work for mine..period. Nor does Hulu plus. I honestly am not stressed about it..I'm still using my PS3 to finish K3 and Mortal Kombat and Blu-rays. But for Netflix andf Hulu I'm using Xbox Live. It's great to own all 3 systems when networks go down. But I'll definately take the freebies when PSN comes back. Evil
Easy way to use Netflix while PSN is down... go to your computer and sign into Netflix. Simple.
...Some people are profoundly stupid. Especially whoever wrote this "article." (Though I daresay the users who approved this are even denser). Thing is... Netflix worked fine... until today. Yes, you can still "cheat" your way to the program proper, but when you access movies they will not load, with a (new) message appearing saying that streaming is impossible without an active long-on to the PSN. Yesterday, Netflix did not require a PSN connection to stream video. Today, it does.
i think thats just your problem i was watching Trailer Park Boys on netflix like 10mins ago
Ha ha ha... you were watching Trailer Park Boys and you say HE has a problem???
What are talking about? Netflix has worked the whole time PSN has been down. Its easy to log in. Just try and log in to PSN and get get error message twice and your in. That is it. Nothing special. I'm honestly on it right now.
That doesnt work for everyone. Trust me. Ive attempted to get netflix on 2 different ps3s. One worked, one didnt NO MATTER WHAT. Im not an idiot. It just plain didnt work.
No point in a argument. Just use the PS3 that works :)
The ps3 that works is at my parents place. Mine doesnt work. And even if you can get to the program menu, it errors out once you try to watch a movie. I dont understand why some work and some dont, but i dont appreciate people just thinking others are idiots because theyre having a different experience.
My brothers works ...mine doesnt. I think ur might have to do with hin having an older firmware...he hardly updates
it seems like it only works on one. Mine worked until I used it on my brothers and now it no longer works on mine and asked me to enter my netflix password.
i love N4G, its so helpful
Umm.... X, circle; X, circle...done
up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, b, a
up, down, left, right, up, down, left, right, hold A, start
i think i know what thats from lol. Isnt that the code from sonic ?
hmm.. all this time I thought it was: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start See: konami code
@Skv007 That's only for one player... for two players you need my code. Plus it was a freaking joke, why are so serious about a 20 something year old cheat code?
It's a good joke. So must get to the root of it ;) Nothing to bust anyone's ballz about lol
Hulu Plus is out. Tell me how to get that back up.
Really lol. That has been on PS3 since last year. Someone does not own a PS3 lol.
on the compouter until sometime later this week unfortunately. I watch the movies on netflix but watch family guy/cleveland/etc...on hulu
Things really aren't that simple. Ive attempted with 2 different slim ps3s. One worked, one didnt. Dont treat people like idiots just because they cant make it work.
Lol @ the disagree.
I need to know how to use MLB TV while its down. It sucks watching base baseball on my small 19' lcd computer monitor.
It works on one of my consoles but not the other one now why is that?
Same problem here. Wish i had an answer...
How to use NetFlix while PSN is down.... Now, presumably if you can read this article you still have access to the internet... Probably through this little known device called a "PC"... Good news, you can use NetFlix through your PC too... What a crazy thought. I never understood the giddy excitement over being able to do something on a game console I could already do on my PC.
If my whole family wants to watch the movie...it's better on my 55 inch...rather than a 17inch screen.
There should be a little plug in the back of your TV where you can connect your PC to it via the computer cable. If not then maybe you purchsed a tv that needs to be upgraded??? Even the TV I have for my daughters room is PC compatible and it is 3 years old.
Fellas?!?!? What are you doing??? You're trying to apply logic against they who want to b**** constantly about the PSN downtime!!! You don't do that![/sarcasm]
2 ps3s in the house. netflix works on both
Lucky....no go for me.
This worked during the outage until yesterday, ironically after the press conference. Nobody needs to be an asshole. People aren't lying when they say the "trick" stopped working. Why It still works for some people is odd.
some fancy way....or turn the tv setting to your computer and or xbox and or wii and watch that way....all depends what you have.....i like using my xbox over ps3's personally to me the 360 is a lot neater than the ps3....the ps3 has a better search tho which i like a lot
Still works for me I tried earlier today watched a few Twilight Zone eps.
I'm guilty, on day two of the PSN being down my friend had to let me know that all that I had to do was just hit X as if I was signing into the account. Instead I just turned the system off out of anger.
Theres a thing called a PC! use it and hook it to your 55 inch screen.
0.0 ooooooooooooo nice pic
I thought people knew this already. It's not rocket science. Some are just a little slow.
I wish i could use netflix in my country but sadly i am stuck with MUBI.
how about how to use Netflix for Free?
