Netflix Coming to Nintendo Wii Soon

Joining PS3 and Xbox 360, the Nintendo Wii console will finally gain Netflix’s streaming video service as well. It is available free of charge to Netflix subscribers with unlimited plans, starting at a low $8.99 per month.

But you will need a free software disc from Netflix in order to get the streaming working, unlike the Xbox 360 which requires no extra disc, although it does require a Xbox Live gold membership instead, which costs $50 a year.

Worth taking note though is that the Nintendo Wii can’t dish out anything more than 480p video resolution, so it might not be the best thing to watch movies on.

You can register at Netflix for notifications if this interests.
