I can't watch Neflix on my MacBook Pro

My name is Bianca and I've been a PC user since... Windows 98 XD. Now, I've been a proud Mac user for about a week. Needless to say, its quite an adjustment! But I'm getting the hang of it!
However, there's one thing that I still can't seem to get started. That's watching Netflix on my computer. The problem was to download Silverlight, which I did. Then, I thought the problem would be over. But Netflix then told me there was a problem and that I needed to uninstall it and reinstall it. And I did! But it still won't let me so I'm just watching Netflix on my iPhone 5 :/
I have a 13-in LED backlit widescreen notebook Model No. 1278

Which browser are you using to try to stream Netflix?

Have you tried re-downloading it off the Microsoft Silverlight website instead off of the Netflix website? That might help. I would open Finder -> Downloads -> (Find the Silverlight download) -> Move it to the trash -> right click on trash and empty it.
Now open this website with SAFARI. This is the Microsoft Silverlight official website.
Get Silverlight | Microsoft Silverlight
Quit out of Safari THEN Finder -> Downloads -> Open the silverlight download -> install it
head over to netflix and try it out

Along with what version of OS X the machine is running and which version of Silverlight you installed.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
