Hi there Gus and welcome
You can use a Telephone line this is no problem but it all depends on the speed your provider is giving you on the line.
You need a minimum 5.0 Megabits for Netflix to run. This is easily done on a phone line if your provider is giving you these speeds.
Do you know speed your provider is offering you on the phone line?

Hi Richard i have no provider on phoneline as we have only used satellite for years now
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, well make sure any provider you choose Gus gives you a speed of at least 10MB
This will guarantee that you get a good experience with netflix plus some bandwidth over for general surfing WHILE watching netflix
