Connecting Samsung HT-BD1250 to Netflix

I just activated a Netflix account and went through the process of setting up my HT to the internet. It says I have a connection. However when I try to access Netflix it states that Netflix service is temporarily unavailable. When I go to Netflix to activate my Netflix Ready Device it's asking for an activation code. Do I need the code for my HT to access Netflix and if I do, where do I find that code? Is there something else I should do at my end with the HT device to set it up?

Thank you

Thank you for your response. After chatting with an online tech from Samsung it was determined that the clock and date needed to be correctly set for Netflix connectivity. After I made the change to my incorrect date, my home theater came up with the access code for Netflix. Something about Netflix having to be able to sync with your device. Maybe this will help others in the future.

Here's the link for this fix and other solutions if the time and date fix doesn't work.

Hope this helps others.

Help in Canada with Netflix

In reply to: Thank you

Now that Netflix is available in Canada I want to start using this feature. I bought this unit last summer and the only e-content option it has ever displayed is youtube. I've always assumed that it was because Netflix/Blockbuster were blocked in Canada. Now that they're not I was expecting those options to appear in the choices, but they don't. I tried resetting the bd player and removing the network cable, but it didn't work. I can access youtube fine so I know that I'm connected to the internet, but Netflix never appears in the menu at all. Any ideas? I'm in Quebec on Videotron if that matters.

I just got off the phone with Netflix, and they determined the problem with this particular Home Theatre System is that it is only compatible with Netflix USA. I have had the same problems with seeing youtube only. Now I know there's no point pursuing this anymore. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news Canadian Samsung bt-bd1250 owners.

It would have been great if Samsung could have made that clear in their manual or online resources.
