Netflix streaming choices apple TV VS computer?

tvOS & Apple TV Apps
Hello all As the subject says, I found some interesting issues when using netflix streaming on both internet explorer and on an apple tv and am wondering if others have found the same? I am currently signed up for the free monthly trial and when browsing results on the apple tv, each area only has 75 results no matter if they are tv shows or movies. When browsing online however, I seemed to have found a larger selection. For example, searching for ninja turtles on the apple tv yields nothing, while searching online brings up ninja turtles the next mutation which streams just fine and allows selection of episodes. Does netflix or apple perhaps limit content on certain devices? The resolution is set to auto in the apple tv settings, should it be set to 720 or 480 in order to display non hd content? If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I was definitely looking forward to many more choices on the apple tv than what is there now. I also don't mind using a pc but again, the whole idea here is to have an accessible version of netflix which I'd hope would include all streaming content available. Thanks Sincerely Jay
It's perfectly normal for only 75 choices to show up. Whether you're watching netflix on the Apple tv, a play station, or other streaming box, you only get a certain number of results. You can, however, browse the website and add things to your instant queue, and then access them through the Apple tv that way. As far as searching goes, I don't know why you're finding things on the streaming website, and not on the Apple tv. While I only get 75 results when I browse, I have never had something not come up in a search, if it was available to stream on the website. I also keep my settings on auto. To my knowledge, no content is limited, but browsing has it's limitations.
the problem is that netflix probably doesn't support the apple tv and not a lot of titles are available on the apple tv then the PC.
I know this is a bit off topic, but I was thinking that could be a great help for some of you guys who love watching on Netflix. I have a go-to site when I want to watch some good movies on Netflix, and it's called, Instant Watcher. This web site would help you to find the most watched movies within 24 hours, tell you when some of the movies will expire, and even allow you to watch or save the movies on your queue directly through the website. I just thought about sharing this information to all of you guys since we are talking about finding movies. I highly recommend that site. I found it easier to find a good movies to watch instead of browsing the lengthy list of Netflix, which we all know that most of them are craps. Trying to Help, @Musicruz
Use the computer with netflix.
It is probably a apple restriction.
