Netflix plans to unleash streaming video for the Nintendo Wii
To use Netflix on the Wii, you'll need a broadband connection and a free disc from Netflix. Unfortunately, the Wii's hardware isn't powerful enough to stream Netflix' selection of HD videos.
As people struggle to save money, a Netflix account is one of the first things to go, but users are increasingly cutting back their plans and streaming movies instead of quitting Netflix altogether. Streaming also saves Netflix money. According to the New York Times, it's 60 cents to mail a disc, and only 5 cents to stream a movie.
