No disc Netflix on Wii

Last week Sony announced that users of the PS3 could start streaming Netflix content over the PS3 without needing a disk. Today Nintendo has announced the same thing for the Wii game console. As of today, the Netflix streaming app for the Wii is on the Wii shop channel and no disc is needed for streaming.

The Netflix service on the Wii can be used by any member with a Netflix account of $8.99 monthly are higher if they are connected to a broadband internet connection. The Netflix app for the Wii is free to download.

“Wii is a consummate home entertainment platform and has quickly become one of the best and most popular ways to enjoy movies streamed from Netflix,” said Reed Hastings, co-founder and CEO of Netflix. “The availability of Netflix right on the Wii Menu adds significantly to the ease and convenience that attracts our members to the Netflix streaming experience and is an important step in our efforts to continuously improve the service.”
