Netflix on the Wii Features Some Nice Long Load Times

Kotaku writes: The Netflix discs enabling streaming video over the Wii are already in the mail and one reader's uploaded this video, showing us what we can expect - in this case, 30 second loading times to browse the catalog.

By this video, booting up the service takes 33 seconds. After registering the device, it's another 33 to get to the video menu. You'll also notice some 10 second waits while the console downloads other categories for browsing.

The story is too old to be commented.

vast majority of the Wii audience that isn't all that techie...I'm sure 33 second load times will seem like a marvel of the internet age as opposed to waiting for a Netflix disc to arrive in the mail.

Wii hardware can't handle streaming properly.

Why did they bother.

and even after that it's not perfect, and if this problem does not effect the movie itself then it's still quicker than a trip to blockbuster.
