Netflix on Wii

We just got Netflix streaming on our Wii last night and it is awesome!!

Not having satellite or cable television is still going really well. I've been doing great with the library and Netflix by mail but now it's like I have the movie section of the library in my house! Without old people hogging up the documentary section and getting all territorial once they know I want in there! And without crabby-looking librarians! (although most of them are pretty nice. I can admit that now that I've had some positive library experiences.)

Netflix sent us a disc, we put it into the Wii, the Wii found our wireless signal (on its own), the instructions asked me to enter a code into the Netflix site on my computer and VOILA! a whole library of movies and television series one Wii remote click away.

Here's the link to get the free disc for your Wii

If you have Netflix and a Wii, you have to do this. It's so easy!

I've ordered mine and I got the confirmation that it has been shipped. I should get it today. I'm so excited to hear that it is so easy.

We received our disc a couple of weeks ago. All I can say is, NICE!!!!
it is so much easier to sit down and watch a movie on the tv instead of staring at my laptop with my daughters ear buds so I can hear what is going on!! lol

Cool! I didn't know you could instant stream thru the wii. We have a xbox360 and we instant stream via Netflix thru it. My husband loves it! Not all movies are available via instant stream which kind of sucks but we still get dvds mailed too.

You made me look like such a hero to my husband- thanks for the tip!! Of course he had some problems getting it set up, I hope it works when I get home today.

This little trick has created an obsession with Lost at my house. A serious obsession. We love some streaming Netflix. Enjoy!
