More people stream Netflix on their PlayStation 3 than any other device
A press release recently came out stating that more people stream Netflix to their TV via the PlayStation 3 than any other device worldwide. It even beat out the PC at times. I honestly have to say I’m not surprised by this, every time I turn on my PlayStation 3 there is always people on my friends list using Netflix. The PS3 beat out other consoles, smart TVs, tablets, and other devices to get this title.
Sony asked CEO Reed Hastings for further insight on why the PS3 and Netflix partnership has been so valuable:
“PS3 is our largest TV-connected platform in terms of Netflix viewing, and this year, at times, even surpassed the PC in hours of Netflix enjoyment to become our number one platform overall. PS3 is a natural fit for Netflix in terms of developing and first deploying our most advanced features. We can transparently update our application with new features on a daily basis, and through the free PlayStation Network, people around the world can sign up for Netflix directly from their PS3.”
The PlayStation Vita also brought in awesome innovations like being able to watch something on your PS3 pause it then start it where you left off on your PlayStation Vita. I guess the sky’s the limit when it comes to these two power houses.
