Wii, PS3 Lose Netflix Discs
Both Nintendo and Sony have dropped the need for a disc for Netflix streaming for the Wii and PlayStation 3 consoles, the companies announced this week.
Netflix for Wii will be available for $8.99 a month through the Wii Shop Channel, while Sony announced last week that the PS3 will not require a disc either. The latter will also offer Dolby 5.1-channel surround sound.
"Netflix is committed to delivering an unparalleled experience to its members who watch TV shows and movies streamed instantly over the Internet," Greg Peters, Netflix vice president of product development, said as part of the Sony announcement.
