Xbox360 and PS3 users have been able to watch Netflix movies through their game consoles for a while now and the Wii has finally joined that list. Last week, Netflix started mailing free discs to Wii users who signed up on Netflix.com. Those discs, when inserted in a Wii, will allow Netflix customers to instantly stream movies and TV shows directly to their connected TVs.
I’ve been watching Netflix movies through my Xbox for a few months now and love it. Even with the cheapest Netflix plan with one disc sent to me at a time, I can watch as many movies or TV shows (as long as they are available for streaming) as I want.
