Netflix on Computer

How do I sign into netflix on a computer with my Xfinity account?  I want to browse and view programs and mark things to view later, but I can't sign directly into Netflix.  I found an older post, but the link it references no longer works and just goes back to the Forums Home Page.

Re: Netflix on Computer

This is one reason why signing up for these subscription services through a 3rd party can be limiting. Roku can have a similar problem in restricting you to Roku devices.

Basically, cancel the subscription through Comcast, and then sign up directly with Netflix.

Otherwise, you can see if there is any info here that may help:

if you subscribe through your Xfinity subscription, go to the x1 Netflix app, and go into settings and account. you will find a menu item where you can get a username/password to access on other devices from that menu.

Re: Netflix on Computer

That sort of worked, thanks.  I didn't exactly find settings with my User Name & Password but I did find what email address was registered under Help.  So I was then able to do a password reset with Netflix. using that email address.
