Netflix says users stream over 1 billion hours of content each month
Netflix has over the years rolled out apps to allow streaming of its content for just about every device out there. You can get Netflix apps for Android and iOS smartphones, tablets, computers, and all three major gaming consoles. If the device is internet connected, odds are that Netflix “has an app for that”.
Netflix has announced this week that the
Sony PlayStation 3
is the top device for streaming its content. The PS3 proved so popular for streaming content this year that Netflix says it even passed the PC in hours of Netflix viewing at certain times.
The PS3 is particularly noteworthy because any owner can sign up for the free PlayStation Network and then register for Netflix directly on the game console. You don't even need a computer to sign up for Netflix; you only need the PS3 game system and an internet connection. Netflix also reminds us that the PS3 was the first entertainment system to offer Netflix in full 1080p resolution with 5.1 channel Dolby Digital Plus sound.
says that it currently has over 30 million subscribers around the world. Those 30 million users have streamed more than 1 billion hours of content each month making Netflix the world's leading internet subscription service for TV shows and movies.
