    I am just wondering if there is any way in which I can connect Macbook Pro to my TV so I can use Netflix and Now TV, without having to look at my smaller screen?

    My Macbook Pro is about 6 months old and my TV is a Panasonic TX-P37X10B Viera Link.

    If possible, what cables would I need?

    Cheers :)

    A Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable or adapter plus HDMI cable should suffice.

    Very easy to do

    You need a HDMI cable ($20) and a MiniDisplayPort to HDMI adapter ($35). Plug the adapter into your ThunderBolt port and run the cable between the two devices.

    There might be less expensive cables and adapters out there. I just quoted from Apple Canada's site.

    Also, I bought an Apple TV recently, and while it's not perfect, it is great for NetFlix.

    A more elegant solution might be an AppleTV3 as the OPs MBP is new enough to support AirPlay Mirroring.

    Yes, if you get one of the adapters I linked to (the one in the quote, bolded and in a bigger font).

    There is an app on the Mac App Store called Mirror for Panasonic TV, which let's you do screen mirroring from any Mac to any Panasonic Smart TV. You can find it here: http://apple.co/2bKVcyv
