Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

wii-sb1It’s not rocket science. First it was Microsoft’s Xbox 360, then the PlayStation 3. Now Netflix’s “Watch Instantly” is coming to Nintendo’s Wii. At least that’s what the word is, according to StreamingMedia, who has an undisclosed source that has confirmed that Nintendo is currently testing Netflix streaming on the Wii. And that it will be available “very soon.”

Hopefully that means before the holidays, but it could mean anything. If you have a Wii, you are used to waiting anyway. Waiting for better games, waiting for a better storage option, waiting for something better than 480p…

Samsung BD-P1600 Netflix streaming Blu-ray player shows up

Posted in Blu-ray by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2009

Samsung BD-P1600 Netflix streaming Blu-ray player shows upSamsung’s new value priced Blu-ray player has been overlooked in favor of other better equipped players, but that doesn’t mean it’s not out there and being spotted at retail stores. This one was spotted on a Best Buy shelf.

Supposedly Blu-ray player prices will be dropping across the board, and it looks like Samsung is positioning the BD-P1600 as one of their lower-end models. $300 may not be dirt cheap but Netflix subscribers will probably like the unit. However wireless networking requires purchasing a Samsung USB accessory that isn’t released yet and BD Live requires at least 1GB of external storage.

Netflix for Nintendo 3DS now streaming

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on July 14th, 2011

Right on schedule, this morning Netflix for 3DS owners is now available. The app gives the game system access to the entire catalog as long as you have a streaming-enabled plan. Bookmarking works and lets users resume on the 3DS or even another device.

Obviously videos on Netflix are in 2D. We doubt that Netflix will start adding 3D anytime soon. The app is free to download from the Nintendo eShop. With the new price structure streaming is $8, but costs $16 for those who also want unlimited DVDs as well.

Comcast is making Netflix partners pay a toll to deliver streaming video

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2010

A lot of stuff goes on behind the scenes that we never see. Some of those things we want to know about. Like the fact that Level 3 Communications, a networking company that delivers streaming video to Netflix users, claims that Comcast is demanding a recurring fee for the transmission of these videos to its subscribers. On a road this would be called a toll. Sucks either way.

If this is true, this isn’t good news for Netflix users, since increased operation costs always trickle down to the end user. After a few days of negotiating, Level 3 Communications paid the fee. Comcast has come out with a statement claiming that the fee has nothing to do with Netflix or video traffic in general. Instead it’s related to the amount of traffic that Level 3 Communications is pushing off into Comcast’s network.
