Netflix android to TV

Post by helenjoyce on Thu Aug 07, 2014 10:34 am

I am thinking about gettting netflix. Is it possible to stream from my Nexus 7 tablet to my HD TV.? I have researched it alittle but don't understand the tech talk. Is a HDMI adapter needed? Thanks for any advice.

I am not sure about connecting to the TV however unless you can get an IP masker for a Nexus tablet, you will only be able to watch the Mexican Netflix as the US Netflix will be blocked. Netflix knows where you are by the IP address that your tablet uses to access the internet.

Now for your original question.......I am sure you can get a cable from your tablet to the TV (assuming the tablet has "video out" capabilities). Try the new Steren store by the HSBC (Laguna Mall) to see if they have one. Take the tablet so you can ensure the proper plug at that end.

The Nexus 7 does not have a video out port so it requires a Slimport to HDMI adapter. I bought one from Amazon (...haven't yet tried it out) and don't know if they are available locally.

I use a Chromecast to stream video to my TV. The Chromecast plugs into a HDMI port on the TV. It uses an android tablet or smartphone as a remote control. Netflix works with it, as well as a number of other content providers. Best of all the Chromecast costs less than 500 pesos.
