Netflix streaming comes to Nintendo 3DS

Netflix on Nintendo 3DSFresh on the heels of announcing pricing changes that are near-criminal considering the poor catalog of online titles (do not get me started), Netflix now is streaming on the Nintendo 3Ds handheld video game system.

Starting today, 3DS owners in the U.S. and Canada with broadband Internet and a Netflix subscription starting at $7.99 can download a free application that will let them watch movies and TV shows.

“The new Netflix application looks great, plays great and is a fantastic consumer experience,” said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. “It gives Nintendo 3DS owners access to an amazing wealth of movies and TV shows, which they can watch conveniently from thousands of free Wi-Fi access points across the country. Nintendo 3DS truly offers something for everyone.”

“Nintendo is a terrific partner with Netflix,” said Reed Hastings, co-founder and CEO of Netflix. “We’re excited to extend the partnership to include streaming on Nintendo 3DS.”

The new Netflix application for Nintendo 3DS displays movies and TV episodes in 2D on the system’s upper screen. Users will soon have access to an additional library of select movies that can be viewed in 3D without the need for special glasses.
