The posts you're seeing relate to those customers who signed up with a Netflix free for six months offer. Since you signed up a year ago, you'd have had an entirely different offer. In any case, the Netflix app for the TiVo only needs you have an account with Netflix, which you'd use to sign in to the app with.
You can register a Netflix account and get a month free on a basic plan, do so through their website: https://www.netflix.com/gb/ then sign the account into your Netflix app. After one month you will have to pop your credit or debt card details into your Netflix account to keep using it.
Also just joined - where would I get the activation code from? Can't seem to see it.
It should be emailed to you by up to 5 days afters installation of your services, it would be sent to the email address you gave VM when signing up. Ensure that the spam folder is checked during this period. If it isn't received during that period, there are number of ways to obtain your Netflix code:
* Wait up to three days for a response from a member of the Forum Team here - they can tell you your Netflix code. * Ring 150 from a VM / 0345 454 1111 from any phone -> option 1 -> confirm your details -> enter the menu -> option 4 -> option 1. Ask for your Netflix code. * [Currently not available - but maybe later] Use the web chat from a desktop or laptop between 8AM to 8PM M-F, 9AM to 5PM Sa: Account and Billing -> My Broadband, TV and Home phone package -> Chat online. If all agents are busy, reload the page every three minutes and check again.
