Nintendo Wii to Add Netflix Streaming

Report says Netflix streaming on Wii could be available by end of 2009.

Earlier this week we reported on Roku adding two new Netflix players, the Roku HD-XR and Roku SD, and Netflix support on the PS3 coming in November.

Now it's Nintendo’s turn. According to Dan Rayburn of BusinessOfVideo.com, Nintendo is currently testing Netflix streaming on the Wii.

The report, which cites an undisclosed project insider, says Nintendo’s original plan was to bring Netflix playback to the Wii by the end of 2009. That might still happen.

The same source also says Nintendo might hold off on the Netflix service to coincide with its next-generation Wii HD console launch early in 2010.

Either way, the number of Netflix-enabled devices just keeps piling up.
