Sony PS3 Netflix: Disc-Free Application Update

We have some good news for those of you who regularly use Netflix discs on your Playstation 3 console, as we have details on a forthcoming update to the service, which will enable you to watch Netflix movies without the need for a disc.

As reported from Joystiq, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings confirmed that by the end of October, Netlflix will no longer require a disc for usage, instead the PS3 will be updated with a native Netflix app on the XMB.

Here is what Hastings had to say on the matter: “Before our next [earnings] call in October, we expect to be launching a major new version of our Sony PS3 user interface which doesn’t require a disc, and is dynamically updated continuously with the latest Netflix UI improvements.”

Great news then. Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Hulu – the PS3 really does do everything it seems? Let us know your thoughts on the Netflix update. Will this make you subscribe?
