As predicted the PlayStation 3 is about to get support for streaming movies. The Netflix service will be offered on your PS3 before the end of the year. You can pay a monthly subscription to Netflix (from $8.99) and get access to TV shows and thousands of movies. You can also stream Blu-rays but apparently at first you’ll need a special disc to make it work. The streaming disc will be free. The same service costs $50 a year on the Xbox 360.
This is great news for US PS3 owners but what about the UK? Apparently similar plans are afoot but no announcement as of yet. Hurry up damn it! I want my streaming movies!
