its really not that hard


funny what ppl will write about :-)

A lot of people don't know. It took me at least a full day to hear about how to get it to work.

I did it eminently when the PSN went down. All you do it try to log into the PSN twice, it can't twice and your good. Theres really no trick just be persistent.

no i was using mine before fine, after 2 tries it would work but, now it asks me to sign in when it starts to load a movie. When it cant a message says psn connection is required, or some bs, and kicks me back to netfix's homescreen. This happened after i used my netfix on a separate PS3

Its weird I can access netflix on my fat ps3, but every time I try to do it on my slim it won't let me. I get the network error do it two more times then it lets me choose which show I want (but instead on working normally like it does on my fat) I get the same network errors over and over and it won't stop.

Netflix doesnt work for mine..period. Nor does Hulu plus.

I honestly am not stressed about it..I'm still using my PS3 to finish K3 and Mortal Kombat and Blu-rays. But for Netflix andf Hulu I'm using Xbox Live.

It's great to own all 3 systems when networks go down. But I'll definately take the freebies when PSN comes back.

Easy way to use Netflix while PSN is down... go to your computer and sign into Netflix. Simple.

...Some people are profoundly stupid. Especially whoever wrote this "article." (Though I daresay the users who approved this are even denser).

Thing is... Netflix worked fine... until today. Yes, you can still "cheat" your way to the program proper, but when you access movies they will not load, with a (new) message appearing saying that streaming is impossible without an active long-on to the PSN. Yesterday, Netflix did not require a PSN connection to stream video. Today, it does.

i think thats just your problem i was watching Trailer Park Boys on netflix like 10mins ago

Legion2756d ago

Ha ha ha... you were watching Trailer Park Boys and you say HE has a problem???

What are talking about? Netflix has worked the whole time PSN has been down. Its easy to log in. Just try and log in to PSN and get get error message twice and your in. That is it. Nothing special. I'm honestly on it right now.

AnonUser55552756d ago (Edited 2756d ago )

That doesnt work for everyone. Trust me. Ive attempted to get netflix on 2 different ps3s. One worked, one didnt NO MATTER WHAT. Im not an idiot. It just plain didnt work.

dericb112756d ago

No point in a argument. Just use the PS3 that works :)

AnonUser55552756d ago (Edited 2756d ago )

The ps3 that works is at my parents place. Mine doesnt work.

And even if you can get to the program menu, it errors out once you try to watch a movie. I dont understand why some work and some dont, but i dont appreciate people just thinking others are idiots because theyre having a different experience.

Seraphemz2756d ago

My brothers works ...mine doesnt. I think ur might have to do with hin having an older firmware...he hardly updates

wsoutlaw872756d ago

it seems like it only works on one. Mine worked until I used it on my brothers and now it no longer works on mine and asked me to enter my netflix password.

See: konami code

guitarded772756d ago (Edited 2756d ago )

That's only for one player... for two players you need my code. Plus it was a freaking joke, why are so serious about a 20 something year old cheat code?

WildArmed2756d ago (Edited 2756d ago )

It's a good joke.
So must get to the root of it ;)

Nothing to bust anyone's ballz about lol
