Someone posted a comment on the PC World blog indicating that a firmware update (from Sony) was not required to install the new Netflix application, apparently suggesting that the upgrade could be installed even with a lower firmware. Has any one been able to confirm this?

You still have to have a Netflix membership, which here in the States is ~$10/mo. for the most basic plan.
