Method 1: Download free Netflix app to watch Netflix

The first option is to download the free Netflix app to directly watch thousands of TV episodes or movies on Netfiles on both iDevices and Apple TV 4. The operation is quite simple as below:

1. As Netflix app is available to download from the official App Store for free. You can simply click “Install” to install the application onto your Apple TV 4;

3. Log in with your valid Netflix account and start streaming movies;
4. Search the target movie, football game or TV show. Click on your ideal movie and rent or watch Netflix on your Apple TV 4. And if you wanna connect your Mac, iPhone, iPod or iPad to the Apple TV for watching the downloaded Netflix from iDevice or Mac to Apple TV, you can use AirPlay.     

Method 2: Use AirPlay

AirPlay is developed by Apple Inc., which allows you to wirelessly stream video, audio, photo and more media content from your iOS devices or Mac to Apple TV. If your Netflix movies and TV shows etc are already downloaded on your Mac, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, the best choice for you is to use AirPlay to play Netflix on Apple TV. And also, the Apple TV 1 hasn’t the function. For Apple TV 1 owners, the Method 3 is the only solution.
