Nintendo Wii Will Soon Stream Netflix [Streaming Video]

January 13, 2010 at 10:19 am (Uncategorized)

The New York Times writes that Nintendo and Netflix will announce Wednesday that streaming movies and TV episodes will soon be available on the Wii—with one or two caveats. The service will be available free to Netflix subscribers with an unlimited streaming account, but will require a free software disc to be shipped from Netflix and kept in the Wii while streaming. The Wii’s hardware limitations will also rule out HD-quality streaming, though that may be a subtle nod toward a possible HD-capable Wii coming down the line. No start date was given, but given that the streaming software sits on a disc, the service could start as soon as Wednesday. Does Netflix on Wii fill out your home entertainment options, or will you hold out for a higher-definition solution? [New York Times]
