PS3 FREE of Netflix Disc Next Week! | PS3Blog.net

Finally, the news that many have been waiting for… no not Xross-Game-Chat. Starting next week the PS3 is being freed from the clutches of requiring a Netflix disc for all your watching pleasures. In addition to this change there is a new user interface that brings a much richer and faster browsing experience, content search directly on the device, and dramatic improvements in how fast playback starts, even 1080i1080p on select videos. Also a good portion of the content will now include subtitles.

  1. Great news for all the Netflix fans out there. Glad to hear that 5.1 surround sound is working.

  2. Yeah it looks like a much improved app, I think it was worth the wait.

  3. Super sweet! Been keeping my eye open for this for some time now. Been using the streaming feature at least 3-4 times a week for the past 2 months. I still prefer disks for Movies but streaming is perfect for TV shows.

  4. Why do you prefer them for movies but not tv shows? What is the difference?

  5. This is great news! Much better than cross game chat. 🙂

  6. meh…not a fan of netflix especially with Video On Demand from my cable provider since 99% of the new stuff is on there and free and thats if I missed it with my DVR.

    Finally!

    No mater the quality of the stream it still is not the same as disk. Plus I enjoy special features.

    And as for HD content. Just because it’s presented in 1080i or any other HD format dosn’t mean it’s a HD quality picture.

  9. Oh I thought you meant with the Netflix Disc. My bad

  10. apparently, he slipped up. Its 1080P output, not 1080i. Also, the article should include the mention of 5.1 surround and the inclusion of subtitles on a bunch of movies

  11. Jay: inclusion of subtitles on a bunch of movies

    ohhh nice!

  12. Article will include what I say it will include.

  13. cannot wait. i watch on my ps3 all the time, and not having to pop my game disc out will be huge.

  14. Yeah plus the UI seems better, I think the wait was worth it. It always sucks at the beginning but seems like they made a lot of good changes.

  15. Hooray! Higher definition and surround sound are all great features. Plus no disc-swapping!

    @Eddie

    I dunno about how your On Demand works. But for me I have to subscribe to a movie channel like HBO or Shotime. Then I can only watch movies they are playing that month at any given time. They do offer a selection of movies that I can “rent” and watch streaming. But the selection is always changing. New movies like Alice in Wonderland are only there for a limited time.

    Since the movies channels are 10-12 dollars anyway and each “rental” is anywhere from 3-6 dollars. It seems Netflix would be a better deal. Since the selection is always there and it’s cheaper.

  17. note that netflix streaming is already discless in canada 🙂

  18. Those damn Canucks!

  19. Everywhere I read said support up to 1080i on SOME videos not 1080p

  20. It was 1080i at first but then the official blog fixed it and said 1080p

  21. Awesome, that’s what I like to hear! Never thought I’d say this but Monday can’t come fast enough!

    @Legion I work for a cable provider so I get all of that for free lol. But point taken.

    However I still have other options of getting shows, movies I want.

    Hey Eddie what cable company? I work for time Warner cable as a system tech.

  24. Comcast as a Routing Coordinator 😛

  25. Does TWC limit streaming speed vs download speed? I feel like we get fantastic downloads
    But streaming YouTube,vimeo,netflix anything! Is always so slow… Doesn’t make sense 🙁
