How to Install Netflix on PS3

By Nichole Liandi

Netflix has begun moving beyond its original business model of mailing DVDs, and is rapidly stepping into on-line streaming content. And one way to add that capability to your home entertainment system is to use a PlayStation 3, or PS3, system to access the online content. The installation process is easy to access through your existing PlayStation Network account.
