they now play together. can now stream movies and tv shows to the TV via the Wii console.
setup is easy – insert the DVD from Netflix in the Wii console and then type the code you see in the TV screen in the Netflix page. works perfectly, faster than streaming to my PC.
the only shortcoming is that the Netflix DVD has to be in the Wii console everytime you want to stream – still, not bad for a freebie.
I'm streaming "The IT Crowd", a Britcom. w00t!
