Netflix is everywhere you look and on every kind of device known to man, when you stop to think about it. If it has a screen and an internet connection there is a very good chance that Netflix is available on it and as long as you are a Netflix subscriber, you can watch all of their streaming library through any device. This, of course, includes the major consoles, as you can boot up Netflix on your Wii, Wii U, PlayStation 3 as well as your Xbox 360. The only thing is, if you have Xbox 360, you’ll need an Xbox Live Gold membership to access that. Weird, right? $50 Blu-Ray players offer Netflix now, as do just about every TV and DVD player under the sun.
For this weekend it looks like Microsoft is going to open up Netflix to non-Xbox Live Gold members as a part of a promotion to allow everyone to watch the Netflix original series “House of Cards,” which debuts today, February 1st, on Netflix.
To top it off, if you want to catch the Super Bowl and have one of those Xbox Live Gold memberships, Hulu Plus will be allowing non-Hulu Plus subscribers to catch the Super Bowl on there as well. I’d be happy if the New England Patriots weren’t out of the mix.
