How to Watch Netflix on Your Boxee Box

The wait is over. You can finally watch Netflix on your Boxee Box. This tutorial will guide you through the steps to do just that.

Netflix on the Boxee Box

Please note: Boxee is no longer in development, which means if you don’t have the correct version of the software already installed, this guide will not work. Even with the correct version, you may still have issues. I no longer own my Boxee Box so I can’t confirm for certain, please proceed accordingly.

  1. Start out by updating your Boxee Box to the latest software version. To do this, click the Menu button on your remote until the “Boxee Toolbar” appears. Use the arrow buttons on your remote to navigate to the Settings on-screen button. It’s in the upper-left corner of the screen, as illustrated in the image below.

  15. Once it has rebooted and the latest version has been installed, select Apps from the “Boxee Toolbar”
  16. Depending on how you have your Apps preferences, you may be presented with a list of every available App, or just your Favorites. If you only see a list of installed and/or favourited Apps, select Apps from the Boxee Toolbar again, and this time select All from the sub-menu.
  17. Use the navigation/layout buttons in the upper-right corner of your screen to sort the full list of Apps by Recently Added.

  21. Once the installation has completed, the Netflix App will launch on its own. If it doesn’t, manually select it from your list of Apps. You’ll be prompted with a Are you a Netflix member? introduction screen – and you can take it from there.
