Netflix on Wii

I got my Wii disc from Netflix today. If you have been waiting for it in the mail, it should be coming to you soon.

Just like the PS3 version, you enter your activation code upon inserting the disc into the console. Also like the PS3, you must keep the disc in the console to use it.

Video quality is limited on the Wii version, but if you don’t have a PS3 or Xbox 360 it is probably worth it. I will play with it this week and post an update on the user experience. So far it is pretty good. You navigate preset channels and can add movies to your queue. You also have access to your instant queue that you have to set up from your computer. This is a reasonably good version of the standard Netflix experience for gaming consoles. Again, if you already have the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions you won’t need the Wii version. If you don’t have the more advanced consoles this will be very useful for you.
