Hello and sorry you're having problems. Unfortunately, No- this TV cannot directly connect to Netflix. The remote needs a dedicated Netflix button to launch Netflix (which this set doesn't have). The browser won't allow you to connect to Netflix, because it needs to be a dedicated "App" in order to do this. So, what you would need is an external device connected to the TV's HDMI port that DOES support Netflix (such as a Roku, Amazon Firestick, Apple TV, Smart Blu Ray player, etc.).

The link below shows what devices specifically support Netflix, so you can choose one of those based on your location: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Netflix-compatible_devices

Thank you for your answer, I have given an appropriate rating. Can I stream Netflix wireless from my PC to the TV. If so - how do I do this?

No there is no way to stream netflix wireless from a computer to your TV. You would need one of the devices I mentioned above to do this, or to connect a laptop to the TV using an HDMI cable.
