What's the point of the Netflix code?

#1parKb5Posted 7/14/2011 12:51:26 PM
I don't have an existing Netflix account, When I went on my 3DS to sign up it said to go to netflix.com/nintendo3ds and sign up and it gave me a code to enter.

I went to the website to sign up and it asks me to enter my email address and a password to sign up but there is no where to put in the code I got from my 3DS.

I got as far as entering in my credit card number, but I am not sure I want to give out that info if I am not 100% sure that I can watch videos on my computer and 3DS on the same account.

If I get to a point where I can input the code from my 3DS should I do it? Will it lock the account to my 3DS only or could I watch them on my desktop computer, too?

One last question: Could I watch streaming movies on my laptop with the same account?

Thanks!

You can use Netflix on any device that supports it. The 3DS code is just to tie your system to your Netflix account.

As long as you have a streaming subscription, you can play videos on any compatible system.

The code is only to activate that device. With an account you can watch netflix on any compatible device with the same account.

you can use your netflix account to watch stuff on any device you want (thats what the code is for) and you can be logged in with the same account on 3 devices at the same time

Do I use the same code that I got on my 3DS for my computer and laptop?

Each device has a different activation code.

You guys should read. He says he doesn't have an account.

TC: That code you got was probably to get a free month.

I think the first month is free after that they will charge you if you don't cancel the account. I have Netflix on my TV(Roku), 360, Wii, 3DS and you can sign in on Netflix on any computer/laptop.
