On Friday, I was waxing eloquent about Netflix and its streaming video service, which has become part of my media consumption. And like me, many Netflix fans were accessing the new but fast-growing video streaming service via their DVD players, televisions, Rokus and Xboxes. Well, add Sony’s PlayStation 3 to this list. Netflix just announced that it is going to be supporting the gaming platform that’s already bundled with a Blu-ray DVD player.
Netflix will begin streaming via the PS3 system next month at no additional cost to Netflix members in the United States who have a PS3 system. For only $8.99 a month, Netflix members can instantly watch unlimited movies and TV episodes streamed to their TVs and computers via Netflix-ready devices. By the way, I will be chatting with Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, at our upcoming NewTeeVee Live conference on Nov. 12. You won’t want to miss it; get your tickets today!
