PS3 #1 for Netflix
PS3 users love the Netflix App. A lot. A recent report named PS3 the #1 Netflix streaming in the living room. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings had this to say about PS3 users and their fondness of Netflix:
“PS3 is our largest TV-connected platform in terms of Netflix viewing, and this year, at times, even surpassed the PC in hours of Netflix enjoyment to become our number one platform overall. PS3 is a natural fit for Netflix in terms of developing and first deploying our most advanced features. We can transparently update our application with new features on a daily basis, and through the free PlayStation Network, people around the world can sign up for Netflix directly from their PS3.”
Clearly a lot of PlayStation 3 owners are tuning in to watch their favorite movies on shows on Netflix. With hit shows like The Walking Dead, Lost, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, and Supernatural, along with cult classics like The X-Files and Freaks and Geeks, it’s no wonder so many PS3 users are firing up the Netflix app.
With so many streaming apps already available, it’s just a matter of time before HBOGo makes its way to PS3 as well. We hope.
