    Hi everyone —

    I bought a used MBA 11. Everything's working out fine except that I can seem to access Netflix. I've downloaded several browsers — Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Opera. No go. In fact, in one of the browsers, I'm redirected to Getflix whenever I type Netflix.

    I just want to watch on my browser. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Robert

    clear your browser cache or do private browsing?

    Hi there —
    Just cleared cache. Still redirects to getflix when using Firefox. Anyway...thanks for the reply. It's not that much of a big deal.

    I don't think Netflix has a MacOS App...

    so every time you type Netflix.com on Safari you see Getflix or Google Search results?

    Is your used MBA 11 on a fresh OS install or are you using the OS that came with it?

    Check your DNS settings. It might be pointing to Getflix' DNS, that's why you're being redirected to their website.

    do you have getflix app installed? like what oj88 stated - culprit is most likely a DNS redirect
