Netflix to Stream on the PS3

October 28, 2009

Netflix and Sony Playstation 3

Yesssssssssss!

As a PS3 owner and a Netflix users, this news could not make anyone happier.  The stars have finally aligned and all is right in the world.

Playstation announced on their blog that next month an application will be available at no extra charge to allow you to watch your Netflix movies streaming to your TV.  WOO HOOO

This is big news for PS3 owners and a strategic move for Netflix.  This move was expected though as Netflix recently moved to X-Box live last month.

This will obviously be a win-win situation for both sides.  Playstation has done a good job as positioning their product as an entertainment hub and not a video game console.  The availability of Netflix on the Playstation really cements them as an entertainment company.  This is also a good move for Netflix.  With almost 25 millions PS3s sold to date, this could be a good opportunity for them to expand their customer base.

PS3 owners are techno savvy and shelled out anywhere from $299 – $599 for their PS3s.  What’s another $14.95 a month for unlimited movies in the mail; and on your PS3?  Netflix is obviously hoping that this will help expand their customer base.

Are you as excited as I am for the “marriage”?
