what is the best way to watch Netflix?

I am not a member but am thinking of it and know literally nothing. I have a crap laptop but I don't want to watch films on that sat at my desk - can you connect laptop to my TV? I also have an Xbox 360 a PS4 and an Xbox One. Are some console Netflix apps better than others? Is the X1 app any good for resolution etc?

I can't say for the PS4 side of things but I think the 360 and X1 have the same resolution. The 360 app is a lot easier to use. I like watching Netflix a lot more on my 360 than my X1

They should all run nearly identically. There are anecdotal reports of one system running better than others depending on their setups, but it's not universal. Just try it out on all of your systems.

Any console with Netflix just has minor UI differences.
No big deal.

If you have a Samsung Smart TV you can get a Netflix app.... The difference is that you'll save energy by not needing a console running.

If you care about sound, you need to use a console, or a PC with Windows 8 because you can't get 5.1 from PC unless it's with the Windows 8 app.

Out of the consoles you mentioned, it looks like Xbox One has the best sound (Dolby Digital Plus 5.1)

I use the ps3. Idk why but if I guessed it's still my main media machine as all the next gen systems can't replace it yet.

Does anyone care about 3d?

If so, I believe that the PS3 is the only one that has the Netflix 3d option. I have the PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, and the XBOX One . last time I looked the PS3 was the only one that did anyway.

I have watched some of the Netflix 3d content and I found it to be of fairly good quality.

I personally don't like the netflix app on my Xbox one. For some reason I can never watch anything in HD. Everything is always blurry. The Amazon Instant Video app works flawlessly though and has extremely sharp HD from the very start of the episodes or movies.
