(Newser) – At long last, PlayStation 3 owners will be able to stream Netflix movies to their TVs, the companies announced today. Xbox users have been able to do the same thing for a year, but an exclusive deal with Microsoft kept the service off the PS3 until now. But PS3 users will get a leg up when the service launches next month: While Netflix streaming via the Xbox requires a "Gold" membership, it's free to PS3 users who already have a Netflix subscription.
