    Netflix For Dummies!!!!



    Updated: 7.8.12

    DON'T PM with problems about this guide... Post Questions here and WAIT patiently for a answer

    Recently Updated Netflix via Nintendo Shop Channel: Instructions Below!!


    If you installed Netflix prior to 11.22.11, you will be prompted to update. Accepting this Netflix update is OK, HOWEVER many users have reported that the GUI is very "choppy". This is not a problem with your Wii and it does not affect playback of the streaming content. It seems as over time and use, this "choppiness" seems to subside. This could be due to the larger amount of data (cover thumbs, etc) that must be downloaded. Once this data has been downloaded it is stored in a save file on your Wii. Performance should increase substantially as these files are cached.

    Update 7.8.12
    Netflix has released a 2 block update for the Wii. This update is safe to accept. As of 7.8.12 there is no change log available. I have contacted Netflix regarding this, and the only info they could provide was that it included "video playback enhancements" and "functionality enhancements". They would not/could not give specifics as to what was changed, and stated that a change log was not available anywhere online as of present moment. The person I spoke to also stated that they could not tell the difference, as was my observation. I did however find some interesting info on their tech forum that could be related to this update. For those may be interested see the spoiler below.

    The Netflix Tech Blog: July 2012





    Features added with update on 11.28.11:
    1. New "Just For Kids" section - Kids can browse this section without parents having to worry about them running across "adult" material.

    Error #204036 - HELP! I can't install the updated Netflix Channel !!!!!

    Some users may encounter this error when attempting to install the newest version of netflix. If you have already followed ALL OF THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS and you still get the above error:
    1. Download THIS and extract it directly to the WAD folder on your SD card.
    2. Launch Wad Manager 1.7 or MMM and install IOS56 v5662 patched.wad
    3. Repeat the steps for downloading Netflix from the Shop Channel.

    PAL Notes

    Posting here because I have FINALLY got my Australian Wii to run Netflix in Australia, without using SNEEK. The thing that was stopping everything from working in the end turned out to be a really simple but for some reason, the last thing I checked, and I don't think it's been posted explicitly, so here goes...

    The Netflix Channel will only work when your Wii is set to NTSC output

    Duhhh, you may say... But I went through a LOT of steps to try and make this work before I figured this out.

    For reference, my Wii was originally 4.3E (red Wii). Here is my current setup, with Netflix working:

    4.1U System Menu, USA Region
    Up-to-date Softmod
    ALL IOS updates, incl. IOS 61 & Shop Channel v20 (latest US version)
    Country Code 49 (USA) for Shop Channel
    Latest Netflix Channel downloaded via the Shop
    Prriloader settings - Region Free for Discs & Channels (to use my PAL discs)
    NTSC OUTPUT!!

    I think it might be possible to get this working on a 4.1E Region Free Wii IF all other settings are as above (i.e. just change country region to 49 for US Shop Channel to download Netflix), HOWEVER I have not tested that - I only know that DIDN'T work with PAL output. If anyone has the time/energy maybe they can confirm!

    Of course SNEEK is still a good solution if you don't want to mess with your main region settings etc, and Netflix WILL NOT WORK without a genuine Netflix account and US IP address.

    Have fun everyone!!
    Other Notes:
    - The country settings must be correct in your Wii to be able to download and launch the Netflix Channel. If the settings are correct and you cannot find Netflix in Wii Shop, it is not yet available in your region.
    - As of 11.16.11 Nextflix has signed licensing agreements with Mirimax, MGM and Lionsgate in advance of a planned early 2012 launch in the UK, Spain and Ireland.

    A HUGE THANKS goes out to Emuhack for writing this guide in the first place! Find one of his posts and give him a Thanks!

    Anyone interested in using a USBLoader GX forwarder for the Netflix app? Running Netflix on the Wii has been great...no HD is kind of sad.
