Netflix is coming to PlayStation 3 in November, as was announced this morning. G4TV was kind enough to call up Netflix’s VP of corporate communications Steve Swasey and clear up some details on the PlayStation 3’s service.
HD streaming will be available on PlayStation 3 — just as is for Xbox 360 and PC — all on day one.
As for the biggest difference between PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360’s Netflix services, the disc, Swasey says that this is only temporary. You can get one of these discs for free as long as you’re a subscriber of Netflix. However, Swasey has said Netflix will have an “embedded solution” (application) on PlayStation 3 “at some point,” but couldn’t say when.
As of yet, there’s no set date for next month when Netflix will be available on PS3. However, there’s a page up that will tell you when once it’s announced.
