March 21, 2009 Written by Draisey

Despite past denials about Netflix appearing on the PS3, a new survey has been distributed in regards to this exact scenario. The service would allow PS3 owners who already subscribe to Netflix to stream movies and TV shows to their home console. The only requirement is a one-time purchase of a “Netflix Instant Streaming Disc” for only $9.99.

The survey states the following:

Imagine that, as an added benefit to DVDs by mail, Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to watch movies & TV episodes instantly on their TV via their PS3, choosing from a library of over 12,000 choices. There are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, rewind, and pause or watch again. The movies & TV episodes you watch instantly are included in your Netflix membership for no additional service fee.

To take advantage of this Netflix functionality, you will need:

* A Netflix subscription.

* A Netflix Instant Streaming Disc (one-time fee of $9.99). This disc must be put into your PS3 whenever you want to instantly watch movies and TV episodes from Netflix over the Internet.

* Your PS3 must be connected to the Internet.

Netflix offers the following unlimited DVD plus unlimited streaming plans:

* 1 Unlimited: Rent as many DVDs as you want, 1 DVD out at a time, plus an unlimited number of movies & TV episodes that you can watch instantly on your TV via your PS3. $8.99 per month.
