Default Netflix announces upcoming PS3 streaming service

For those who are unaware, Netflix is a great service for renting movies over the Internet, saving the time and hassle of visiting the video store. The service is available for computers, Microsoft's Xbox 360, and as announced today, the Sony PS3, which will be compatible starting next month.

In a press release posted earlier, Netflix revealed the news, stating that the service will be available at no extra cost for those already subscribed. According to the press release, "watching movies instantly streamed from Netflix via the PS3 system will be enabled by a free, instant streaming Blu-ray disc that is being made available to all Netflix members." Of course, you'll need to be connected to the Internet on your PS3 for this to be possible.

If you'd like to sign up to receive Netflix notifications about the service and request a free instant streaming Blu-Ray disc, feel free to check out the official website to do so.

Why would streaming quality be worse than on 360? To be honest, it's not very good on the 360. Also, PS3 has a much better scaler.

At the end of the day though, the source resolution will determine overall quality.

sustained for about 2 hours? and where the hell do you live?

even if you could download at 95Mbit, netflix doesn't have the capacity to send out blu-ray quality
