Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 is #1 for Netflix Streaming in the Living Room

It’s official: More people stream Netflix content to their televisions via PS3 than any other device worldwide. This is a major milestone, and one we’re particularly proud of considering the myriad Netflix-compatible streaming devices on the market, from other gaming consoles to smart TVs and internet-connected set-top boxes.

To demonstrate why our partnership has been so valuable for both PlayStation owners and Netflix users, we asked Netflix CEO Reed Hastings to offer some further insight:

 

“PS3 is our largest TV-connected platform in terms of Netflix viewing, and this year, at times, even surpassed the PC in hours of Netflix enjoyment to become our number one platform overall. PS3 is a natural fit for Netflix in terms of developing and first deploying our most advanced features. We can transparently update our application with new features on a daily basis, and through the free PlayStation Network, people around the world can sign up for Netflix directly from their PS3.”

We won’t stop here. Our joint development will continue to produce innovations that further demonstrate PS3 as the true home for entertainment in the living room. For example, earlier this year PlayStation and Netflix expanded their partnership by bringing the Netflix experience to PlayStation Vita in the United States. This enables PS3 owners to start watching a movie or TV show on Netflix, pause it, and seamlessly continue watching on PS Vita’s beautiful 5-inch high-def OLED screen.

It is no surprise really, the ps3 smokes the competition when it comes to the Netflix app

I use my PS3 mainly for netflix. I'm kind of surprised that it sometimes surpasses PC. Either the PS3 market is bigger than I thought or the PC market is smaller.

It is simple, most people prefere to watch movies on their tv than on their pc. It is also more convenient to use netflix on a console!



Interesting as Netflix would compete with PSN

Bet with gooch_destroyer, he wins if FFX and FFX-2 will be at $40 each for the vita. I win if it dont

Well PS3 neftlix app is lightyears ahead of X360 app and Wii is pretty much dead so no wonder. Not to mention that with X360 you need to be Gold user.

Of the 3 consoles, I prefered NetFlix on the Wii, then the PS3 and lastly the 360.  I also have a Sony Blu-ray surround sound unit, an Apple TV and two TV's with built in Netflix.  Out of all of them, we are happiest with the quality of Netflix on the Apple TV.



Stop hating and start playing.

yeah i thought so, for 360 you need gold if i'm not wrong (not sure about quality i don't use it) and they pretty much push their own service xbox movie or however they call it if you start the console and not many have their pc connected with tv for whatever reason and it is also easier to sit on the couch, start the console and start the app as it is to go to the desk. start pc, start netflix and go go to couch



Well the PS3 have the best Netflix app... so I use it too even with Netflix in my HDTV and PC I prefer to use the PS3.

I would use my PS3 to stream it, but I got a Wii U now, so odds are that's what I will be using.

Ask stefl1504 for a sig, even if you don't need one.http://i.imgur.com/fOMna.png
