Netflix on the DS?

Portable video streaming could become a reality

Despite lacking the power of the PS3 or 360, Netflix are investigating the possibilities of extending their services to the DS.

The US video-streaming service is surveying consumers about the possibility of their service working on Nintendo's omnipresent handheld.

According to Kotaku a survey stated the following: "Imagine that Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to instantly watch movies and & TV episodes on their Nintendo DS. The selection available to instantly watch includes some new releases, lots of classics and TV episodes. There are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, rewind, and pause or watch again. The movies & TV episodes you instantly watch are included in your Netflix membership at no additional fee."

This would seem to indicate that the same Netflix functionality available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 could soon become available on the DS.

More on this when we have it.
