Wii Finally Gets Netflix
Soon the Wii too will have Netflix capabilities.   (Netflix)

This Spring the Nintendo Wii will finally be able to stream Netflix movies like the Xbox 360 and the PS3, the companies announced today. Wii users, like their PS3 brethren, will have to pop in a special disc, which they can get free from Netflix (Xbox users don’t need a disc, but do need a $50-per-year Xbox Live gold membership). The selection is fairly limited, but hey, if you already subscribe to Netflix it’s free. (More Netflix stories.)
