208w ago - Public Relations Specialist Ashley Beaulac at Sony Computer Entertainment Canada has revealed that beginning today Netflix is streaming its way to Canadian PlayStation 3 users.

To quote: For those of you who don't know what Netflix is, it's the leading internet movie subscription service, which basically means that all of us Canadians can now watch an unlimited amount of movies and TV episodes for $7.99 a month.

Now your PlayStation 3 is able to stream from Netflix right to your TV, letting you chose from thousands of movie and TV episodes; watch as much as you want, whenever you want.

To get started simply look for the Netflix icon under the video icon in your XMB (cross media bar).

For all our friends in the US and current Netflix members, you'll have to continue using the instant streaming disc for your PS3 system until the Netflix application icon becomes available for you in October.

For all our French speaking friends, Netflix intends to add French language capability over time.

I got that too. I think it's because Netflix need 3.42 FW to run. I'm attempting to extract the pkg and modify the SFO file so that I can change the FW to 3.41.

People have edited the SFO file to 3.41 FW, but Netflix still needs to connect to PSN in order to run, so I guess we're out of luck for now.

I downloaded Netflix from your link and I'm trying to install it to my fat PS3 running fw 3.41.

No go, it always tells me: An error occured during the install operation. (80029567)

Do you have any idea ?
