Netflix is pleased to announce today that the much awaited application for the PS3 is now available! No need to use that annoying Blu-ray disc anymore!
It is better than I imagined it to be. The new layout is great, the picture, sound, speed, the fact that you can send and receive PSN messages without pausing the stream or exiting the app is my favorite part.
It is not a Move compatible yet
Why is it that when you state fact after fact, people disagree. What the hell has fanboyism become?
The speed is the best change for me. The videos load faster and page faster. I'm very satisfied with what they've done.
I like that I have now watched two Episodes of "Weeds" today WITHOUT taking out Medal of Honor and inserting the Netflix disc. I'm also thrilled that I can no send messages and so forth without shutting down the vid I happen to be watching.
at same time ?
you need to have separate PSN account while playing movie.........the maximum active netflix device that plays at the same time is 2 but you can have 6 active device
I like being able to do two netflix devices at the same time. Be it 360 and ps3 or 360 and wii but I dont have two ps3's to try what you are asking. Seems possible.
First off Kudos to Justpushstart.com for not making this a look at me my console of choice can do this and yours can't. Dmarc_Atl,yes you can log in to Netflix on to PS3 and watch with no problems,you know you can't go online with the same account on different PS3s,so thats your only roadblock.
So do i just boot up my ps3 and it's there? I'm going to check and see if it's really better than my 360's netflix.
It's in there. Pretty small download actually.
one thing i noticed the 360 lacked was a search function. this reason alone is why i prefer PS3 over my 360's netflix. i'm sure this will be an addition to the 360 netflix service when the dashboard update comes though.
for the 360 dashboard update in a couple of weeks, thats when the netflix service will be updated on the 360.
for me i saw it in the video section on the XMB and i just downloaded it.
search is coming to the netflix update in the new dash. I have been test driving it and it makes things way more accessible. So many more movies to choose from besides the ones they recommend. With ps3 and 360 getting nice new netflix features the only one left is the wii. I think they will have a netflix channel out soon with similar features.
i need to correct myself. I guess nintendo has released their netflix channel as of today. I guess I will be downloading two new apps for their respected platforms. I have the 360 beta dash to compare how it performs against the ps3.
Maybe I read it wrong, but I thought this update was going to allow for HD AND 5.1 sound playback? So far when I browse it doesn't state which ones are presented in HD (the 360 does) and it doesn't state which ones are 5.1. Am I missing a setting or something? Or is this just how it is and you don't know till you hit play?
i got 5.1 and hd. it says whether its 5.1 or hd next to the title
i used this today, it's a lot better than i expected also. i'm happy i don't have to use a disc, i kept losing that damn thing anyway.
is this just for america or will europe get one
Europe is Getting a service called LoveFilm , its the Netflix of Europe :) Edit: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
it's only america and canada
I'm using it now and my layout changed from this morning. This morning it was normal with the videos on the right and the categories on the left. Now the videos are on the left and a description of the vid on the right. I have to press square to view a list of categories. Anyone know how to change it back to how it was before. I dont remember changing anythin?
Just in case anybody is interested, the Wii also now has a disc free Netflix channel. I know that some people use the PS3 in their main room, and the Wii in the spare room (or bedroom), so that might be useful info for them. Just go to the Wii Shop and download the channel.
A phantom disagree yet again!! I'm not surprised, although I do wonder why someone would disagree with a fact? Does the Wii NOT have disc free Netflix? If so, somebody better tell Nintendo, then.
I signed up for the free month suscription! Only problem I have is that Bleach and Naruto are not on the Anime section and The dark knight is DVD MAIL ONLY...DAMIT!
The Blu-ray drive in my PS3 died yesterday, so this news is extra precious to me...
Now if only Canada get's a decent selection of movies on Netflix.
i got it at 10am east coast time this morning been usein it all day
And the Wii completely undercut the whole PS3 netflix thing by releasing theirs on the same day without any prior promotion. I'm not making a fanboy statement but it seems like a big Eff You to Sony with Nintendo releasing their app on the same day as a surprise. So now Netflix is available on all 3 consoles instantly, but since all my consoles are in one place, I'll be sticking with using the 360 for Netflix. It's kinda pointless to get Netflix on the other consoles when they are all in one place, plus I have Netflix on my iPhone. Netflix is always with me. The Netflix is good. The Netflix is sacred. The flesh is sacred. The flesh is evil. The blood is boiling. The blood is spilling. Wow I'm sorry that kinda fell apart at the end. What was I saying? Oh yeah. Netflix is awesome no matter where or how you use it.
If Some one Has a Netflix Account Can you use that account on 2 ps3s at the same time?
you cant be logged in to two different ps3's with the same account. You can do two different devices with the same netflix account however. Meaning if you have it for ps3 and you have it on pc at same time or 360 and wii or any combination of two different devices with the same netflix account. well...actually I guess if you are able to link your netflix account to multiple psn accounts then it should be possible. I had to think at that a min.
I have 2 different PSN accounts,and yes if you have tow PSN accounts you can used Netflix on both,the funny thing is I posted this on this same article and I got a disagree for it when both me and my son watch Netflix all day on different PS3s.
I love the 5.1 and 1080p videos. It's like a bluray being streamed to my tv.
AMAZING. After using my 360 for Netflix for a while now, switching over to the New PS3 app, I can safely say that the PS3 has the far superior experience. The sound, picture and speed all act as they should. 1080p layout is better and I can't believe it didn't bother more people that the 360s does not have a search function. PS3s search feature works just like the website. Yet one more reason to use my PS3 instead.
