How to change Netflix profile on Smart TV step by step
If you want to share your Netflix account with your roommates, but by "splitting" the viewing preferences according to the tastes of each individual user, you can add new profiles to the account that is currently in use.
In this way, each time you decide to watch something on Netflix, you can select your personal profile to retrieve the preferences and options previously established.
Before continuing, I remind you that Netflix allows you to create up to a maximum of 5 profiles per account; The number of possible simultaneous accesses, on the other hand, is defined by the type of active subscription: 1 access for the subscription basis (€ 7,99 / month) 2 accesses for the plan Standard (€ 11,99 / month) 4 accesses for the plan Premium (€ 15,99 / month).
If you have a Basic plan and want to change your subscription type, you can easily proceed from any browser you prefer (including TV).
Therefore, visit the page https://www.netflix.com/YourAccount and then having entered your account credentials, click on the item Change of Plan and follow the suggested procedure on the screen to go to a "higher" floor.
Now that you have 'adapted' the subscription to your new needs, it is time to understand how to intervene in the vision profiles, changing the one in use depending on who will use the service.
If you have already set up profiles for each member of your family, you can switch between them in a number of ways.
The simplest method to change Netflix profile on Smart TV involves turning the television off and on again. At each new start, the Netflix application should automatically show the screen for selecting the profile to use.
Alternatively, you can change the active display profile directly from the application.
After starting it, press the key left turn in the remote control To open the Netflix main menu, select the name of profile currently used (eg. Salvador ) using the icon at the top of the menu and press the button Okay o enter in the remote control to access the profile selection screen.
Create a profile
If necessary, you can proceed to create new profiles directly from the Netflix TV app.
First, access the profile selection following the instructions I gave you just now, then press the button Add Profile and, using the keyboard on the screen, indicate the First name to assign to the new profile.
Then press the button Following, specify a icon, language for content is displayed and if you are creating a profile for children, place the check mark next to the corresponding box. Finally, press the button end.
From now on, you can use the newly created profile.
In case of errors during the creation of the profile, or if you want to delete a profile that is no longer used, return to the screen profile selection, press the button pencil placed on the profile of your interest and press the button twice Delete profile to get rid of it permanently, thus removing the display preferences associated with the profile itself.
If your TV does not offer the ability to create new profiles from the Netflix application, you can create a new profile directly from the service's website or from your application to Android o iOS.
Once you open the site or the application, click on the button Log In, enter your account login credentials (use the same as the associated account on the TV), then select the item Add a profile and follow the same steps that I showed you a while ago.
Once the operation is complete, simply turn off the Smart TV and turn it on again to see the new profile appear also within the Netflix application of the TV.

In case of problems
If you have problems accessing the functions of the Netflix application for Smart TV, the first advice I can give you is to turn the TV off and on again to completely free the application's "memory" of the temporary information saved so far. .
However, it may happen that the memory clearing is not performed correctly, due to the quick on / off configured in the operating system from the TV.
In this case, it is a kind of "standby".
In this case, only turns off the Smart TV screen, while the operating system is left in low power mode.
In this case, the applications remain active in memory and, for this very reason, it may not solve the problem you are experiencing.
To fix the 'problem', it may be enough to disable Quick Start mode (available between TV settings ), Or remove the power socket from the appliance and replace it after about 2 minutes.
If the problem still does not resolve itself, I suggest you "cut your head" and try uninstalling and reinstalling the application again, directly from your Smart TV store.
For any other problem related to your Netflix subscription, I invite you to contact the service's technical support staff.
