Disc-Free Online Netflix for Wii and PS3

Netflix has released new software updates for the Nintendo Wii and the Sony PS3 that lets them access the Netflix online streaming service, without having to put in a disc. They now join the Microsoft XBox 360 in having this convenient feature.

This enormous installed base helps extend Netflix’s reach just that much further. The streaming video feature is free for all who subscribe for one or more rental discs by mail at a time, and is a major factor in introducing consumers to the convenience of accessing movies and television programming over the Internet.
