Until 2012 You Could Watch Netflix On A PS2 In Brazil

Netflix on consoles was a much different experience a decade ago. Today users just download an app, login and start watching some TV or movies. But back in 2009, depending on your console, you might have to order a disc from Netflix and link your account to their service to watch whatever was on Netflix in 2009. Amazingly, even some PS2 owners could get these discs.

Anyone remember when you needed a disc to watch Netflix on Wii and PS3?

That was a thing? I guess I just got it after they stopped needing it.

Yeah. It was some dumb licensing thing they did where they couldn't have the app on other platforms via download. I think Microsoft struck a deal with them for exclusivity and Netflix bypassed it early with the physical route

I still remember Netflix parties on Xbox 360. Never used it myself but it sounded like a cool experience

Shame it didn’t happen on other platforms

I used to hear about it too. It sounded awesome.

That and PlayStation Home were great concepts of virtually hanging out with friends. At that time it felt like the most next-gen thing ever. Don't have stuff like that on current systems. A shame really.

And in 2019 you still cant watch Netflix on the Switch....

Sadder still, you can watch it on Nintendo's last gen handheld, the 3DS.
Sooooooo, what the fuck?
