Netflix Streaming Video to PlayStation 3

As I explained in my Netflix review [3], one of the reasons why I became a Netflix [4] convert was the streaming content they had available to XBox 360 owners. For $8.99 a month, you had access to their entire library of online streaming content at your fingertips. From my point of view, I saw that as the real reason to subscribe to Netflix and getting one-DVD out at a time was just a nice side benefit.

Until recently, Playstation 3 [3] owners were left out. Fortunately, Netflix realized the error of their ways and have produced a disc you can put into your PS3 to get access to the Netflix library. By 2010, they believe they will have a software update available so that the disc will no longer be necessary. You can request your disc here [5].

I don’t have a PS3 so I won’t be requesting one or reviewing it but the folks behind Hacking Netflix recently put together a review [6] of the disc and its features. If you have a PS3 and a Netflix member, request your disc so you can get what I consider the best benefit of a Netflix subscription.
