How to Install Netflix on Windows Media Center (WMC)

There seems to be some confusion on how to install the Netflix add-on to current versions of Windows Media Center. Previously a file named NetflixInWindowsMediaCenter.exe was sufficient but this no longer works and you’ll get a “Unable to install Netflix” error.

Here’s how to install Netflix:

  1. Go to Settings->General->Automatic Download Options
  2. Click on “Download Now”
  3. After it is finished, you’ll find Netflix under the “Movies” section.

Now after you install you might run into a “There was a problem signing in. Verify your Internet connection is working and try again” error.

The solution is simple: Delete the mspr.hds file under c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\PlayReady

Hope this helps!
