Netflix Activation?

First off, I have Netflix.  I have the Netflix application/channel but when I try activating my 3DS, before the computer finishes activating it, the Netflix channel tells me the activation code has expired and gives me the option to get a new code.  Meanwhile, on my computer, Netflix says the activation finished.  However, I still can't use Netflix on my 3DS.  Any fix for this?

Re: Netflix Activation?

You say that you have tried "try activating my 3DS, before the computer finishes activating it", what happens if you just get a new code, fully let your computer complete the activation process, then head to your 3DS and start up the Netflix program.

Well basically, I had my 3DS on the Netflix channel so I knew the code.  While that was open, I typed it into Netflix.  While Netflix was activating on the computer, I still had my 3DS on the Netflix channel.  Is that not how it's supposed to be done?  Before the computer even finishes activating, my 3DS tells me the code expired.

Since I have already used my free one month subscription to activate Netflix on my Wii console and didn't continue with the paid subscription, I can't say for sure how it may work on the 3DS, but try writing down the code, exit the Netflix Channel on your 3DS and then see if that will work after activating it on your computer.

Re: Netflix Activation?

when I did it the DS gave me a code I promptly went to netflix.com on my computer and entered it in to the web site and it syncd with my 3ds if your code isnt working you can go to netflix.com and request another code as long as you havent used up a 30 day trial on that device

Just to be clear, the 30-day free trial is for Netflix as a whole, not for each device.
