Netflix Coming to Nintendo Wii Game Consoles

Thanks to an agreement between Nintendo and Netflix, people who own a Nintendo Wii will get to watch movies and TV episodes streamed directly to their TV. Netflix will go live on the Wii this coming Spring in the U.S. at no additional cost for existing Netflix members who have a plan starting at $8.99 a month.

To enable their systems to stream content from Netflix, Wii owners will need a Netflix instant-streaming disc for the Wii console, which will be available at no additional cost. The free disc looks and operates the same as a disc-based Wii game, and the entire user experience will feel natural and intuitive to Wii console owners.
