iPhone/Wii Video Streaming from Netflix

Coming to an iPhone, iPod Touch, or Wii near you!!! This is great news for my family. Will likely only be WiFi, however.

A new player is about to enter the arena: Netflix itself, who intends to bring "Watch Instantly" video streaming to the iPhone/iPod touch and the Nintendo Wii. At present Netflix streams over 12,000 movies and TV shows over a large variety of devices including Intel-based Macs.

Todd Spangler of Mutichannel.com speculates, and I agree with him totally, that when released, streaming will be limited to Wi-Fi only.

Dang, how did I miss this?

We've been streaming over the XBox 360 but it recently fell victim (again) to the red ring of death. Wii and iPod Touch - cool!

Hey Janna,

Good to see you on here. What's the red ring of death? I really hope that streaming comes to the Wii soon...then I won't have to buy another box. We're just about ready to throw cable television out the window and just go with high-speed internet solely.
