Xbox 360, netflix access, settings change, account change

Ever have to reset your password on netflix, or just got rid of one account for a new one, or whatever the case? Then you go back to your xbox and realize you can’t access netflix anymore? Yea that sucks, when you realize theres no direct menu found anywhere to log you into netflix, and that when you load netflix all it does is cycle endlessly (maybe errors eventually) but pretty much offers no means of keying in your login details again. Well I’ve found myself a niffty little fix. And as stupid as its going to sound. It actually works.

\r\n\r\nApparently Netflix has a built in hidden menu that you can access at any time when the app is open (usually a few seconds after its loaded, even in the title screen your stuck at)

\r\n\r\nTo access it using the Direction (D-Pad), on the left side of the controller, and no not the joy stick, the one that resembles a circle, with the arrows, you know the one you barely touch anymore in games.. yea, that one.

\r\n\r\nFollow this Combination after you Open Netflix\r\n

\r\nUp
\r\nUp
\r\nDown
\r\nDown
\r\nLeft
\r\nRight
\r\nLeft
\r\nRight
\r\nUp
\r\nUp
\r\nUp
\r\nUp

\r\nIf you did that correctly, a new menu should pop up, from which you can select “login” or various other settings you didnt know about. Have fun, also don’t go deleting your netflix application data like most bloggers will tell you to, cause all you’ll have for the effort of having to manually delete various bits, bit by bit is the need to redownload the whole netflix app, suffer through the updates, and all else. Only to and very likely be presented with the same situation that you have before you tried to delete the whole app.

    Great tip Chris! For those who don’t have Netflix in their country, I highly recommend Unotelly.

      two plausible reasons why… first it might take a couple tries to get it to work… second it is possible in one of the many updates to the netflix app in their on going process of trying to make their app better, they might have removed the option all together, or made it accessible through other means. I will try it myself and verify when I get some time. Thanks for letting me know it may or may not work anymore

    You have to enter the combination on the search screen. Hit “y” then enter the combo
