    How to install Windows 7 Media Center: Netflix, Internet TV?

    I tried the NetflixInWindowsMediaCenter.exe but it does not add the Icons to the MCE.

    Also same for Internet TV.

    thanks

    I am using it in media center with out a problem, the icon was already in media center.

    When in Media Center, go to DVD's the NetFlix icon should be there, when you click on it, it will tell say that it has to be installed, let do that and then it will ask for your netflix account info and you will be good to go.

    For Internet TV, same thing, If I remember right, go to the TV and Internet TV icon will be there click on that and it will install the Internet TV stuff.

    Is this only for the USA "IP". Is there any way to check my version or if the Netflix plugin was installed? How to debug this problem.. or its some "microsoft magic" again..

    I checked out the screenshots of where the "netflix/internet tv" icon should be also before I posted.. but its just not there. I am using the SLIC BIOS activated of Win7 Ultimate.. checked windows updates.. nothing..

    thanks

    In Windows Media Center, goto Tasks->Settings->General->Automatic Download Options->Download Now

    Netflix and Internet TV should show up after it's done downloading.

    I've tried it, and check the task bar's icon notification the "Update" became gray, then back to non-gray (meaning update is done), restarted MCE, but still nothing. I think its regional based..

    thanks

    in my opinion considering several other online video services, surely its regional to USA.
