Setup Guides

Nintendo Wii

Netflix (and other streaming apps) are only available for download on the Wii in countries where Netflix is available. This guide explains how to switch countries, download the Netflix app, then switch countries back again.

Configure DNS

The DNS settings listed on the Overview page can be input to your router, for the entire network, or directly to your Wii through Wii Options > Wii Settings > Internet Connection Settings. You won’t need to change the DNS settings on your Wii if you have already done so via your router.

1 Change the Wii Country

From the country settings in the settings menu, change your country to the “United Kingdom”.

2 Download the Netflix App

Download the Netflix app from the Wii Shop Channel.

3 Switch Back to your Regular Account

Change the country in the settings menu back to your regular country. Netflix will continue to work, the country just needs to be changed to download the app.

4 Launch Netflix

Launch Netflix and sign in with your Netflix account to enjoy high-definition videos (depending on your bandwidth) from the comfort of your couch through your Wii!
