Netflix Streaming Coming Soon to PlayStation 3

So, the Xbox 360 won’t be the only console with streaming Netflix capabilities as Sony and Netflix has just announced that the PS3 is about to join the ever growing list of Netflix ready devices that allow streaming of movies and TV episodes whenever you want and as much as you want – very soon. Yes, that’s right! Just a little over a year after the service first came to Xbox Live Gold members, Netflix subscribers will be able to access streaming content from their accounts from PS3’s as well.

netflixInitially, watching movies instantly streamed from Netflix through your PS3 will be made possible by a free, instant streaming Blu-ray disc that is being offered to all Netflix members. The free instant streaming disc leverages Blu-ray’s BD-Live technology to access the Internet and activate the Netflix user interface on the PS3 system, which must be online via WiFi or Ethernet.

“The PlayStation 3 system has always been about more than just gaming, and it will soon be the only platform in the industry to offer consumers such a variety of convenient options for enjoying movies and TV shows,” said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. “Whether you want to watch content on Blu-ray disc and DVD, download it from the PlayStation Network’s video delivery service, or stream videos instantly from Netflix, the PS3 system is the only solution that offers it all.”

The Netflix site says that the feature will be available before the year ends but Netflix subscribers who own a PS3 can now reserve a copy of the Netflix disc.
