Streaming From Netflix Looks Fantastic on Brilliant PlayStation® Vita Display
LOS GATOS, Calif. — Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced immediate availability of Netflix on PlayStation® Vita (PS Vita), the first Sony (NYSE:SNE) handheld entertainment system to feature Netflix.
PS Vita can stream TV shows and movies from Netflix in high quality on its brilliant 5-inch multi-touch display via Wi-Fi. Netflix members can also start playing a title on one device, for example on their TV through PlayStation 3, and resume watching on PS Vita right where they left off. PS Vita owners who aren’t yet Netflix members can sign up on the device for a month free trial.
“We are very excited that Netflix is available on PS Vita at launch,” said Greg Peters, vice president of product development at Netflix. “Many Netflix members love their PlayStation entertainment consoles and handhelds. We’re glad to offer PS Vita users the ability to enjoy Netflix wherever and whenever they want.”
“PS Vita is the ultimate portable entertainment device,” said Phil Rosenberg, senior vice president of business development at Sony Computer Entertainment America. “Netflix perfectly complements the most extensive launch line up of games in PlayStation’s history. Now in addition to a steady stream of amazing games titles, PS Vita gamers will also have a great catalogue of TV shows and movies at their fingertips.”
With the addition of PS Vita, Netflix members have a new device on which they can instantly watch unlimited TV shows and movies. PS Vita owners can download and install the Netflix application at no cost from the PlayStation Store. Netflix is available starting today on PS Vita in Canada, the United States and across Latin America.
Netflix offers convenience and value with a broad range of Hollywood, international and local movies and TV series to choose from. Netflix has revolutionized entertainment by giving people a choice to enjoy what they want to watch, when they want to watch it for a low monthly price over a wide-range of Internet-connected devices.
