Thread: Netflix now on the Nintendo Wii!

  1. #1

    Default Netflix now on the Nintendo Wii!

    There's still no offical support for Netflix instant view on the Wii. But with PlayOn you can get it on you Wii.

    Third-party Wii video-streaming service beta begins - News at GameSpot

    it's VERY easy to setup and the quality is very watchable. It does lag sometimes for me and the quality isn't DVD at all but it works and that's all that really matters. So far I watched some of Lost, Dexter and Nick and Norah's on it.

    Anyways right now the service is in beta for two weeks, after that we got to wait until it's officially released. They still got some bugs to work out namely quality control stuff and optimization, but otherwise they got it in the bag. They got their service out before Nintendo or Netflix could so you can be sure they are going to be rolling in money.

    Either way, at least there's a use for my Nintendo Wii.

    Netflix is looking into doing it for the PS3 and Wii as well. There's really no other reason they would add new staff who's job is video game consoles. I am sure they are going to be free since Sony and Nintendo will pay them off just like Microsoft did I bet.

    But for now the Wii has a solution for this problem. Even if it does cost 39.99 for a lifetime membership. (plus its not like there's many movies on instant view that are good that you haven't already seen..... asides from "Primer".)

    I feel I have to point out two groups this won't affect

    • non-Americans
    • Those without access to fast broadband.


    So, as someone in both groups, my opinion is: meh.

    Well Netflix is only for American's so naturally it shouldn't concern any that doesn't live within America, or don't have a Wii or are still on dial-up. So its no surprise you don't even care about this. :P

    Not having fast broadband is not nessecarily the same as having dial up. My broadband is 1mbit, which is insufficient to stream video at any high quality, but still isn't dial up.

    One question, is it free/going to be?
    It WAS free for the beta program but that has ended now. Now Playon costs 39.99.
