Netflix On Wii Now Disc-Free

Finally, the tyranny of the Netflix disc is no longer! As of today, Wii owners who had been using the family friendly gaming console to access Netflix’s streaming video selection will no longer need to take out their Wii Sports or Lego Indiana Jones disc in order to watch a movie.

The new Netflix Channel is available as a free download on the Wii Shop Channel, meaning you can convert that abused Netflix disc into the coaster it has long wished to be.

As previously reported, today is also the day that Netflix goes disc-free on the PlayStation 3, meaning users of all three major gaming consoles have access to the streaming video service without the use of a disc.
