Netflix streaming on Nintendo Wii now available
After a lot of testing Netflix has finally released its streaming service for the Wii. They were testing with a limited number of users before the final release. With this service you will be able to instant stream movies and TV shows via your Wii console using the special Netflix disc provided for free to the $ 9 per month package (or better) subscribers.
You can get your Netflix installation CD by simply going to Netflix.com/Wii and place your order just like you order a regular movie disc. You need to insert it in the Wii console each time you want to watch online movies. Wii is not capable to support HD broadcasting yet but SD streaming is handled very good. DVD by mail is also included with the service.
Here is a video tutorial showing how to access your Netflix Instant streaming service using the Nintendo Wii console:
Nintendo Wii is not the only gaming console to support Netflix. Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 users are also able to stream via Netflix. An extended article talking about this can be found HERE.
PS3 and Wii require the disc for live streaming while Xbox 360 has Netflix Instant Streaming integrated so no disc is needed. The guys from SquidTV are doing a comparison between these 3 video gaming consoles:
One note here: Netflix instant streaming service is not available out of the US at the moment.
