If you don't use some kind of device to connect to Netflix, if you have
a reasonably modern TV that supports a native Netflix app as well as
IPv6, you'd be good to go.

Sadly, PlayStation still don't support IPv6. Hopefully, it comes with
the PS5, although I see no reason why the PS4 and PS3 can't.
