Netflix coming to the Nintendo Wii? Should "work out over time"
According to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, streaming Netflix movies could be coming to the Nintendo Wii in the very near future. His exact words, in an interview with All Things Digital's Peter Kafka, were that the chances of the service launching on the Wii are "excellent" and should "work out over time." Other interesting Netflix tidbits coming from CES 2010 include:
- an agreement with Warner Bros. that will see Netflix waiting for 28 days before new DVDs will be rentable. In exchange, Netflix will be able to buy the DVDs for a lower price.
- the company expects to ship physical DVDs until about 2030.
- Netflix will not be a global company anytime soon. Maybe 30-50 years out. However we will see the service launch in one country outside of the United States this year.
