No Disc needed for Netflix on the PS3

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

I got a wonderful email the other day.

Dear Tim,

You no longer need the instant streaming disc to instantly watch with your PS3™ system.

To watch instantly via your PS3 without the disc:

1) Go to the PlayStation® Network section of the main menu.
2) Simply install Netflix from the “What’s New” area.

That’s it. There’s no need to send the disc back to Netflix.

Enjoy!

Holy Cow, what an upgrade! It’s way better, much easier to navigate and browse the titles. Really before the upgrade the only thing that I would watch were movies in my queue. I would go to my computer and add movies to my instant queue and then go to the PS3 to watch them. Browsing for titles was very awkward. Now it seems to be very user friendly and faster scrolling through titles. I can’t wait to this weekend to test it out.

New Years

I removed the banner from the top of the page and now my website looks naked. I’ll add something else there soon…maybe. In the mean time enjoy a picture of Mike and Isabella. Sox and Cubs, OUT! Blackhawks and Bears season are in full force. I haven’t won anything in my football squares, doing horrible in both my fantasy football leagues. My sports site is up and running though! I’m still in my football survivor pool. I’m going with the Saints this week, we’ll see if I live to play another week.

I saw the Stanley Cup last weekend at Richards Bar. I’m still waiting for the little sis to send me the pictures we took. Will post those soon. Hawks lost, Bears lost, bring on the Dead Wings and Jags! It’s time for Chicago to start kicking some ass.
