I am trying to watch Netflix on my TV though my laptop. I have the two connect though an HDMI cable. I can see everything on the laptop fine and it shows up on the TV fine,. But as soon as I start a show though Netflix the TV screen goes dark, only showing the Netflix video ui and not the video itself. The audio still comes through the TV and I'm not sure if this is a Netflix thing, or my laptop has a setting against this.

depending on the age of your laptop and/or TV the HDMI port on it may be too old that it does not support the HDCP protocol which is a form of copy protection.

this article may help, it is for windows 10 but you never mentioned anything about your computer or TV
