Nintendo and Netflix

Nintendo and Netflix will announce on Wednesday that the movie rental company's streaming video service is heading to the Wii this spring. Over 17,000 television shows and films will be available for instant viewing on the Wii once the service becomes available. To access instant streaming a free Netflix software disc will need to be inserted into the Wii console. Because the Wii lacks the processing power for streaming HD video, Wii owners will only have access to standard-definition video content using the upcoming service. The online video service will be available to Netflix subscribers who pay at least $9 dollars a month. Netflix's chief executive Reed Hastings stated that the rental company's, "growth in the last two years has been propelled in large part by our investments in streaming content and in the streaming platform." Furthermore, he believes that, "when the Wii application ships, it's going to really open up a large additional opportunity.

No, not standard definition!
I'd rather die!

But seriously, I'm looking forward to what Netflix has to offer.

My mom is really going to like it when she hears this because she happens to be a Netflix member and she pretty much gets mail from Netflix everyday.

Just irked at how you need a disk to do this just like on PS3. That's why I stream all of my Netflix on my computer or Xbox 360.

I personally don't think this is necessary, I always saw as Nintendo as a "purely gaming" company. Besides, companies like redbox and Netflix are everywhere these days so I don't think they need anymore expansion

I'd rather have the firmware update that lets me play my DVDs on the Wii.
