@4

Why? It’s not a Sony game, why would they make a post about it? especially when they get shafted when it comes to it.

Wish it was just downloadable. I might sign up for the service now. Though my connection is a bit MEH on speed. (advertised 1.5mb down, get like .700k-1mb mostly)

EH .

Was one of the first to sign up, got my disc last Friday, have been enjoying it immensely. Wonderful service.

I had one of the first Netflix accounts ever, and wish I had kept it all these years. Just six months ago finally got back to having it again and the service is wonderful either by mail or instant play.

Can’t wait for built-in software. While the disc is nice, my PS3 still has issues reading Blu-ray discs so it isn’t a “pop in the disc, stream a movie/play a game” thing with me. I have to think about it for an hour while the PS3 decides it will read a Blu-ray.

how long is the netflix free trial? and i’m assuming all vids will be in high def

+ WestSiide on November 10th, 2009 at 1:40 am said:

So how do you reserve that disc again? I went to http://www.netflix.com/ps3 and like someone else said, all I get is a slot to enter your email and I would be notified when its available. Am I missing something? Do I need to be a current subscriber to reserve it? Or is netflix only allowing current subscribers to get their hands on them first? Anyone with any info would be greatly appreciated.

Netflix…. well, its good if you leave in US. my cousin subscride netflix in his X360, and he cant view any movies becuase his not in US. then he cancelled his account, but after 1 month netflix charge him for the 2 dvds that he didnt receive.

I tryed to sign up and they said they would E-mail me when it was ready well still waiting on that E-mail. But I finally did go sign up. And could any one tell me if it works with remote play?

Dear Netflix.

A starving market exists to your northern border with a population of California. Surely this can add to your bottom line. You would only have 1 DVD/BD distribution competitor (Zip.ca) of note and you’d crush them in months. Please take my funny coloured money.

+ Ruffday on November 10th, 2009 at 3:15 am said:

I got an email from Netflix, but decided nit to go with them until it’s just an update not a disc. Also an extra bill around holiday time isn’t the best thing for me right now.

Netflix has already said that is will be part of a future fw update in 2010.

+ TrueFFVIIFan on November 10th, 2009 at 5:14 am said:

Hey?!?!? Will there be an optional subtitle present in every movies/television shows streaming…??? If not- THEN PLEASE GET AROUND TO THAT NOW AND WORK ON THIS!

It’s not fair that you don’t offer us this opportunity to take full advantage of that and to experience it to the fullest like others do. NOT FAIR.

Loving the service, can’t wait for it to go discless..

Question: I’m about to purchase a second PS3. Is it possible to get two Netflix Streaming Disc’s?


46

+ WildCoder on November 10th, 2009 at 5:42 am said:

Got my disc on Friday too, love the service. I streamed a few movies I wouldn’t have otherwise added to my list. I noticed that under newly added list a few movies are added pretty much every day so that’s great, it really needs more titles, and especially more HD.

I hope that when it’s integrated in the FW they’ll be using some kind of upscaling like the PS3 does on regular DVD so even standard definition video look even better.

LordRaoh: yes you can just order a second disc from Netflix.com/PS3 after you activated your first one. My second disc is coming today so no more carrying it up and down the stairs.

Will it stream 1080p with 5.1 surround sound?

+ neocryptic on November 10th, 2009 at 5:51 am said:

I got my disc on Friday also. I love being able to use Netflix on my PS3. I tried PlayOn, but it always had bugs that made it a pain to access anything. The library is limited through the service, but you can easily add titles from the Netflix website and they appear instantly on the queue. I thought it would be a pain to put the disc in every time, but it doesn’t really bother me at all. I hate to admit that there were several times I had thought of buying an Xbox, just for the added features of Netflix and some other small things. I’m glad I held out and waited.

+ senocular on November 10th, 2009 at 5:53 am said:

The interface feels very rushed. I’m not at all impressed, especially when comparing it to the 360’s (which I was never super impressed with either). I hope there’s a redesign by the time it becomes part of the firmware.

+ romeovoid on November 10th, 2009 at 6:03 am said:

It’s asinine to require the insertion of a disc to stream movies. Who wants to do that? If the Xbox exposes access to the Netflix service via the ‘menu’ so should the PS3. There’s nothing as irritating as having to constantly switch out discs to access content.

At this time, as I’m pressed for cash, I’m thinking about dropping Netflix, with their ‘nickel and diming’, this illconceived PS3 venture may just be the last straw.
