What message are you getting in the black box?
Yes, Netflix requires a subscription to Netflix service. I'm not aware of Skyplayer or iPlayer, though those specific apps may be region specific. I'd recommend calling the Samsung customer service center in your region to see which apps are available for your specific area.
I have just set up my Samsung BD-C8500 blueray player and want to explore the use of internet@tv and other streaming media. My player connects wirelessly with my router Netgear 2000 but I can't access anything on my TV. I get a message in a black box but can't access anything. Do I have to subscribe to Netflix? I was under the impression that I could access iplayer and possibly sky player? These services are free?
What do I need to do?
