How to Access Netflix and Premium Channels on Your LG Smart TV

Last updated on May 28th, 2023 at 12:04 am

Smart TVs are great because they offer many entertainment options at your fingertips. With the ability to connect to the internet, you can access a whole world of TV shows, movies, and other content.

But what if some of your favorite channels are blocked in your region? Don’t worry; this article will show you how to access Netflix and other premium channels on your LG Smart TV.

Getting the Right TV

The first step to accessing premium channels is to have the right TV. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Make sure your TV is America/UK region enabled.
  • Look for genuine dealers who sell region-enabled TVs.
  • Have the TV tested to see which countries/regions it can access.
  • If you can’t find a TV that meets these requirements, consider buying from dealers in other countries. For example, our friend bought his TV in Dubai and now has access to premium channels.

Setting up a Router and VPN Connection

Once you have the right TV, you must set up a router and a VPN connection. This is how it works:

  • A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a secure platform that masks your internet connection to browse the web safely without anyone spying on you.
  • The VPN connection also hides your IP address, so no one knows where you’re browsing from.
  • With a VPN + router connection, you can access the outside world and unblock premium channels like Netflix.

Note: Although we’re discussing this process specifically for LG Smart TVs, the procedure will likely be similar for other brands and models.

Benefits of a VPN Connection

In addition to allowing you to access premium channels, there are many other benefits to using a VPN connection:

  • Increased privacy and security: With a VPN, your internet connection is encrypted, making it much harder for anyone to intercept and steal your personal information.
  • Access to geo-restricted content: Besides unblocking premium channels, a VPN connection can also give you access to content only available in certain regions.
  • Better online experience: A VPN connection can also help you avoid online censorship and bypass firewalls to enjoy a better, more open internet experience.

Final Thoughts

With a little effort and the proper setup, you can easily access Netflix and other premium channels on your LG Smart TV. Whether you’re looking for a way to watch your favorite shows or enjoy a more open and secure internet experience, a VPN connection is a great option. So why wait? Start browsing the web freely and enjoy all the content you want today.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is Netflix accessible on Hisense Smart TVs in Kenya?

Yes, Netflix is accessible on Hisense Smart TVs in Kenya as it is not blocked in the country. The Hisense Smart TV comes with a pre-installed Netflix app and a dedicated remote button for easy access to the streaming service, making it convenient for users to watch their favorite shows and movies.

However, some content, such as movies that are restricted to the US, may not be accessible unless you use a virtual private network (VPN) to mask your location. It’s important to note that using a VPN does not guarantee anonymity, as your internet service provider (ISP) can still detect its use and may even sell logs of your internet activity. Additionally, many VPNs are now detectable on backend systems.”

Can you provide some information about the Mook Heir TV?

Haier is a well-regarded brand, but it is important to ensure you purchase an original and genuine product. Unfortunately, the information available about the Mooka brand is limited, so further research may be necessary before purchasing.

Which is better between TCL and Hisense?

I had the chance to watch both a normal Hisense LCD TV and a curved TCL TV. In my opinion, TCL was excellent in terms of picture quality. I can’t judge the two brands on the same scale, but if my experience with the TCL curve is representative of a standard 32 LCD, I would choose TCL. I would recommend doing some comparison shopping and personally checking the picture quality of each brand before making a decision.

Can you explain what it means to have Netflix on your TV? Is it just a link to the smart TV? Are there ways to watch Netflix without paying or having internet access?

Netflix is a subscription-based streaming service that offers a free trial for the first month after sign up. After the trial period, users are charged a monthly fee ranging from KSh 800 to KSh 1200, depending on the package they choose. Having Netflix on your TV means you can access the service through the pre-installed app on your smart TV. It is not possible to access Netflix without paying for the service and having a stable internet connection, as the content is only available to subscribers

What type of cable do I need to connect my LG smart TV to my home theater, as my TV does not have a sound output jack?

The cable you need to connect your LG smart TV to your home theater is an RCA cable. The audio output on your LG smart TV is typically marked with a headphone symbol and is the simplest to connect.

Can you recommend a place where I can purchase an affordable interchange connector to watch Netflix on my digital TV as an alternative to buying a smart TV? My colleague suggested this option, but I found the connectors very expensive.

The easiest way to watch Netflix on your digital TV from your laptop is by connecting them using an HDMI cable. The HDMI cable allows you to display what is on your laptop on your TV screen.

Another option is to get a Roku box, giving you access to Netflix and other streaming services. Not everyone can afford a smart TV so these alternatives can be a more affordable solution for the middle class.
