Netflix updates its PlayStation 3 app with faster ‘trickplay’ mode and easier access to subtitles

By Nick Summers

Netflix has launched an updated app for its on-demand television and movie streaming service on the PlayStation 3 today, with a new design that makes it easier to access advanced audio and subtitle options.

The addition means that viewers can now manage these features from within the video player, without having to return to the top-menu interface. Simply hit “Audio & Subtitles” to see all of the options for that particular episode or film; this includes all available subtitle languages, surround sound options and dub audio tracks. (Industry, Netflix, PS3)

Yes,I love watching lot's of Foreign films on Netflix but the one's without Subtitles were a pain in the butt. Now i can watch them with subs again :D

The only problem for me is...
Evert since these last couple updates, I can't access the American Netflix from my Canadian account anymore:-( anyone has a solution?
I keep getting the "this video cannot be played at this time" or something like that...

I had the same problem about 3 days ago, but I kept changing my PS3's DNS to different American ones until I finally found one that worked.

Netflix has probably been blacklisting some of the common DNS'.

I think this ( http://www.youtube.com/watc... ) is the video where I finally found a set of DNS codes that worked.

Since it's PS3 related...yes.

@OT

Sweet! Will update when I can. I think PS3 is the best place to watch NF at the moment, correct? Is there a better app/hardware out there that has better UI?

That does seem to be the logic in use. Too bad flawed perception doesn't change facts...

Definitely the best console for viewing Netflix.
BoNeSaW23  +   471d ago
Why is that? Have viewed Netflix on all the consoles?

Why is the PS3 version better? Please explain. Besides, it is the number 1 console used for Netflix.

This is cool and all but I need this update to also come to the Vita.
Speaking of the Vita I need Hulu Plus and CrunchyRoll on there too thanks!

I hope they fixed their streaming problem.
For the past couple of weeks, I've been getting constant freezes on all movies; the audio would play while the picture staggers.

I wish they would get rid of all of the needless "since you watched ___" categories. I also hate how it takes forever for the Canadian Netflix to get good new content.

I don't want Bollywood movies like they've been adding lately, or Gay and Lesbian movies for which they have a full section for now and I don't want a shit ton of B rated movies or Anime either. give us the best of the old classics throughout the ages, with new up to date big releases.

From what I understand, the Canadian version is piss poor compared to the American version. I might even cancel my subscription if they don't begin to offer some more compelling content.

The since you watched thing is fairly broken anyway, it recommends some weird stuff.
