3D video coming to Nintendo 3DS?

According to Nintendo of America, 3DS users will soon have the ability to “enjoy FREE, specially selected video content that includes 3D movie trailers, comedy clips and music videos.”  This information was confirmed after speculation of Netflix streaming 3D movies to the DS was announced. Now, Nintendo of America has not denied that Netflix could possibly stream 3D movies to the DS, h...

Nintendo negotiating Wii U video content streaming services

As of last summer more people streamed Netflix using a Wii than any other medium. Nintendo is now attempting to negotiate deals with other content providers to expand its streaming options on the upcoming Wii U. Nintendo is working on securing both video streaming and gaming. One source says Nintendo is working with Comcast for cable distribution rights. What do you hope to see on the Wii U as far...

3DS Netflix arrives and works great. Except for one thing…

Netflix hit the eShop today! After a quick download (free) and a couple of hours testing, I’m happy to report that the 3DS version of Netflix is fast, uses the dual screens well, and delivers–mostly–a very enjoyable, satisfying experience. Films and programs load briskly, and I experienced no buffering pauses during my viewing. The interface, very similar to the Wii version, allo...

Nintendo 3DS to receive Nintendo Video, Netflix

One of the most interesting features of the 3DS is its ability to play 3D video content. In the US, the only 3D video content to be found was a trailer for Green Lantern and a video feature jumping dogs. That is all about to change.

Nintendo news round-up: Netflix disc rendered useless, new Club Nintendo rewards and more

– The Wii Netflix instant streaming disc’s functionality is being given a traditional burial and will be shot into the sun on February 16th. If you’re still using the disc instead of the downloadable Netflix channel, you might want to use this time to free up some space and pay your last respects to your dearly departed physical media. ( GoNintendo ) – Wired ran an interest...

One thing Netflix needs to fix…

I love Netflix on Wii, especially the improved no-disc-required version. The company recently announced its commitment to greatly increasing the rate at which it adds new films and shows to the service, with an eye toward eventually phasing out DVDs altogether. While they’re at it, I hope they address a nonsensical quirk in the interface—One that ignores the fact that many subscribers only wat...

Disc-less Netflix streaming debuts on Wii

Today Nintendo released a free Netflix channel for download from the Wii Shop, which will allow Netflix subscribers to stream their movies through the service without the need to first insert a Netflix disc. A Netflix streaming subscription currently costs $8.99/month, includes a 1 month free trial, and should be the same experience whether you use a disc or not, but now you can keep your happy d...

Good news, hosers! Netflix headed to Canadian Wii’s this fall

Good news for Infendo Nation North: Netflix will be available for your Wii this fall! I know a few comments in the past have indicated that more than one of you are from Canada (not including Zac). So who is excited? [via Joystiq]

Here’s the Netflix commercial to promote streaming movies on Wii

One million people instantly stream Netflix movies on Wii. With more than 70 million systems in the wild, however, Netflix wants that to number to be much higher. So they released a cute little parody commercial in an effort to get the word out.

Netflix Wii adoption not that bad

Netflix on Wii has been a modest success, reports Reggie Fils-Aime, with almost 1 million users logging in and using the disc-based service since its inception last month. As GamesIndustry.biz puts it, this information “flies in the face” of “analyst” Michael Pachter, who “predicted” Wii owners would not warm to the service because they don’t go online as ...

Update: My experience with Netflix on the Wii

About two weeks back I happened to receive a free Netflix disc for the Nintendo Wii that came with a perk of a free month of service from Nintendo themselves. I already had a Netflix account so the free month of service actually was pretty cool perk. I was in doubt about how well the service would work on the Wii; seeing as how I already use Netflix on my Xbox360. My mom on the other had, has neve...
