Netflix Streaming on Wii - No Disc Needed

Got an email this morning that you no longer need a disc to access Netflix streaming via your Wii.

I have to admit with everything else going on it's been a while since I streamed anything from Netflix (got tons of stuff on my instant watch que) but this is nice to know.

Yeah, I've been mearning to test this on my PS3, but I'd have to reopen an accout with Netflix. While I was a very early adopter of their service, I realized I wasn't watching the movies they were sending me for months at a time, so I cancelled my subscription.

They claim to offer 1080p video with 5.1 surround sound audio on the PS3.

That's the glitch with the Wii - no HD or 5.1 sound. You can get the streaming and one disc at a time for $10/month, not a bad deal at all.

Just from the ads I've seen the PS3 is doing a good job of becoming a "media hub" for the average consumer that doesn't want to get into HTPC. I've considered getting one.
