TVs of that vintage most likely did not support Netflix or much streaming --if any. Your cheapest and easiest way to Netflix and much, much, much more is to pick up a Roku box. These can be had for as little as $49 up $99 depending on the capabilities you want. The basic support 720p output and the high end units support 1080p and DD streaming from netflix, worth it if you plan on connecting to a home theater setup, not needed if no. All but the most expensive model connect wirelessly to your network, the high end model gives you a choice of wired or wireless, if possible I always go for a wired connection.
