Netflix Plans to launch on all game consoles

Netflix wants to go beyond the Xbox

Netflix Watch Movies Online, DVD Movie Rental, Blu-Ray

During an interview with Reuters Reed Hastings, the chief executive of Netflix, spoke about his future plans to launch on all video game consoles, but categorically denied any announcements in the near future since their contract limits them to just the Xbox 360, for the time being.

Reuters: Netflix video streams on Microsoft’s Xbox Live system. What about the PS3 and Wii?

Hastings: Eventually we want to be on all the game consoles, all the Blu-ray players, all the Internet TVs. So we are working in parallel with all of those efforts. Currently our Xbox deal is exclusive and we haven’t characterized it more than that.

The Interview also covered if Netflix plans to work in partnership with Apple, regarding the iphone.
Hastings said “it’s something that’s likely to come over time. But nothing in the short term. With movie watching, we are not focused on mobile yet, but instead on the TV, on Blu-ray and on the video game consoles. We will get to mobile eventually, including the iPhone.”
