Netflix Streaming Coming to the Wii
Nintendo Wii users will be able to stream Netflix movies and TV episodes on their consoles, Netflix announced on Wednesday. The feature will be enabled this spring, at no additional charge for Netflix subscribers.
Wii owners will need a free instant-streaming disc from Netflix, which can now be pre-ordered online. After inserting the disc, Wii users will be able to watch movies from the Netflix library, organized in categories. The Wii remote will be used to navigate through the menus, rate movies and fast-forward/rewind through the videos.
If you don't have a Netflix account, the minimum subscription you will have to pay to enjoy streaming on your Wii is $9 per month. The Wii does not support HD resolutions, so only the standard definition range of programmes will be available.
