Netflix Watch Instantly for the Wii?

Just took part in a survey for Netflix where I was asked about my interest in Watch Instantly on a Wii. Interesting that a disc might be required…

Imagine that Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on their TV via their Nintendo Wii. You can choose from a library of some new releases, lots of classics and TV episodes. There are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, rewind, and pause or watch again. The movies & TV episodes you instantly watch are included in your Netflix membership for no additional fee.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • You will need a Netflix subscription
  • You will need a Netflix Instant Streaming Disc (available for free). This disc must be put into your Nintendo Wii whenever you want to instantly watch movies and TV episodes from Netflix over the Internet
  • Your Nintendo Wii must be connected to the Internet

If this functionality were available, how likely would you or someone in your household be to get a Netflix Instant Streaming Disc for the Nintendo Wii (available for free) in order to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on your TV?
