Netflix streaming available now on 3DS

Nintendo adds streaming app to 3DS

Starting today gamers in the United States and Canada will be able to download the Netflix app for unlimited streaming of TV shows and movies.

The app will stream movies and TV episodes in 2D on the 3DS. There are future plans that will see an additional library of select 3D movies that will be viewable on the 3DS without the need for special glasses.

You can purchase a Netflix streaming account for $7.99 a month and connecting to Netflix requires a broadband Internet connection.

Just like all games and items available on the 3DS to download the app you must visit the eShop and install the free system update. You can also access the parental control settings through the Netflix application if parents wish to control what content their kid's watch.
