Confirming persistent rumors that have been circling around the internet for months, Sony Computer Entertainment of America and Netflix have released a joint press statement revealing that the Netflix service will be making its way onto Playstation Network. The Netflix service will allow users to stream movies and tv series from their console. For more information, please hit the jump.
For a little less than 9 USD per month, users will have unlimited access to movies and tv series through the service. At the offset of the service, the service will not be available from PSN. Instead, users that wish to use the service on the Playstation 3 will receive a free disc containing the service, and access to the service can only be gained by using this disc.
The service will be available somewhere next month, though no specific date has been confirmed. The service has only been confirmed for the United States. Until now, the Netflix service was exclusive to the Xbox 360.
