Disc-Less Netflix Streaming on PS3 AND Wii Today

Today is launch-day for streaming Netflix content without a disc on the Sony PlayStation 3 (see earlier post here). Today, Netflix added the Nintendo Wii to the list. Netflix is now available to download from the Wii Shop Channel.

To get started you need a minimum $8.99/month US ($7.99 Canada) plan, plus a Wii and a broadband connection. The Netflix channel can be downloaded at no extra cost.

The Xbox 360 has offered disc-less streaming from the beginning. The required discs for PS3 and Wii made it much easier to simply use the Xbox instead. If you’ve been hoping and dreaming for a disc-less Wii or PS3 Netflix experience, today is a good day. I have all three consoles at home, but can now use my preferred system with more convenience. I’ll leave it to you to guess which of the three that is.

There is no word on exactly when Netflix will be in the Wii Store, so if you don’t see it immediately keep checking back. It should be there soon.
