Netflix Now Available On Wii In The UK

Netflix is now available to download on Wii consoles in the UK.  To download Netflix, all you need to do is go to the Wii Shopping Channel, then to the Channels menu and you’ll see the Netflix option at the top. After you download this, you can begin your one-month free trial.

Netflix will enable you to stream films and popular TV programs through your Wii. After your months trial, Netflix is available at £5.99/€6.99 per month. Netflix is available in NA on the 3DS, so hopefully it will follow suit over here.

Are you happy that Netflix is now available for the Wii?

    This is very good news. I use the wii all the time for iplayer.


  2. It’s great news… I’m a LOVEFiLMuser but I have an Ubuntu Media Centre box at home, so with them switching (annoyingly) to Microsoft Silverlight I’m screwed for my “TV streaming solutions” (naturally MS tech doesn’t work on Linux)!

    NetFlix has now given me a good enough workaround with the Netflix channel. Granted, LOVEFiLM is available for the PS3 but I don’t have one of those so this is great news for me 🙂

    I may well end up cancelling my LOVEFiLM subscription!


    • Checked out Netflix on Wii yesterday and was pleasantly surprised with how smooth it all was. Having seen the dodgy quality of the “Nintendo Channel” videos, I wasn’t expecting much, but Netflix videos are as good a quality as you’re going to get for the Wii’s resolution. Very impressed!
