Netflix has announced that it’s entered the final stages for the rollout of Netflix for the Wii. Starting in the next few days, several lucky customers are going to get the new Netflix via Wii to so that Netflix can gather final feedback.
The announcement, from Netflix Vice President of Marketing Jessie Becker, is short but sweet: starting today, Netflix is sending out instant streaming discs to some Netflix members. Their feedback on the experience will help the company fine-tune the experience. After that, Netflix via Wii will be part of the Netflix unlimited plan ($8.99 per month).
We first learned about Netflix for the Wii in January. The move makes sense; the PS3 and XBox 360 already have Netflix streaming, and the Wii is the best selling current-generation console in the U.S.
Wii owners, will you be using Netflix via Wii? Let us know in the comments.
