Good news for PS3 owners everywhere! Netflix and Sony have partnered up to bring Netflix streaming to the Playstation 3 console, Kotaku reports. The announcement comes after much speculation that Netflix streaming would become available for consoles other than the Xbox 360.
The PS3 version of Netflix streaming will be very similar to the experience we’re familiar with from the Xbox 360, with the ability to browse and update right from the PS3’s XMB. To access the streaming, Playstation 3 owners will need a Netflix-provided Blu-ray disc in their consoles in order to take advantage of the Blu-ray’s BD-Live technology and watch movies and tv from the service. These discs will be free, and can be requested at netflix.com/ps3.
As of now there’s no release date for this new feature, but The Playstation Blog reports that Netflix expects to begin streaming to PS3 owners in the United States sometime next month.
