Netflix previously said that a disc-less client would come to the PS3 in 2010. Now, we are getting a more definite release window.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings:
“Before our next call in October, we expect to be launching a major new version of our Sony PS3 user interface which doesn’t require a disc and is dynamically updated continuously with the latest Netflix UI improvements,”
Many presume that the client is currently disc-based for contractual/legal reasons rather than technical ones.
Awesome news regardless.
