Netflix to stream movies over Sony PS3

Posted by a staff writer

Sony and Netflix have signed a deal to allow the delivery of movies and TV shows to the Playstation 3.

Thendeal means that PS3 users will be able to get access to the movies by using a Blu-ray disk free from Netflix. In the future, Netflix and Sony will offer a similar service to the one struck with Microsoft and the disk won't be required.

There are nine million owners of Sony PS3s in the USA - and Netflix will count the Sony win as yet another elenment of its portfolio. It already provides similar services not only the Xbox 360 but to TiVo, a Roku device and a number of other devices.

Netflix has 11.1 million subscribers in the USA.
