The Wii has an “Internet Channel” from the main menu. Within this channel is a list of blocks used for access and browsing. Netflix will become one of those channels.

This choice outweighs the small computer screen or laptop. Using a Wii for streaming movies also requires broadband access, which most viewers have. This option is definitely worth the Netflix fee and the cost of a new Wii gaming console.

The app is free and the interface is roughly the same, without inserting a disc. They finally added a search feature, too, so you can now find anything you're looking for.    Still a great service - we use it all the time. Frankly, its good enough that if Netflix ever gets their whole library available for streaming, it will probably render …
