Since i live in the UK and will never experience the joy of Netflix or its connectivity with the PS3, i'm going to need a QL to get past this painful time of my life.

I'm pissed that I did not receive the email.  I guess I have to wait for who know how long before I get mine.  :(

My disk is in the mail.  I should have it tomorrow.  Curious as to how the interface will be. 
 
It's definitely not as convenient as it is on my Xbox since i need a disk, but i'll give it a whirl. 
 
Heck, i hope i can have both my Xbox and PS3 as "activated devices"

Sweet!! I will be alternating between this one and my 360 Netflix Instant (both on the same TV) to see which one is superior.

Chill out. This is Netflix just jumping the gun and giving people the necessary software before Sony upgrades the firmware. It will happen for sure, just wait a week or so :)

It's to get around Netflix's console exclusivity agreement with Microsoft. It is technically a BD-Live feature that uses the BRD player, rather than a console software install.

@Killjoy:
Expect to wait closer to a year for software only.  There's been speculation that the exclusivity deal signed with MS won't be expiring till then so this backdoor work-around keeps them out of a court room (no, I can't back that up, find your own rumor mill sites).

The disc is just an early implementation, possibly a way to get passed the 360 exclusivity deal. There will be a Netflix app that integrates into the XMB sometime next year.

I don't see why popping in a disc is a big deal to some people. I put in a Blu-Ray disc for each movie i want to watch. So putting in one disc for thousands of movies is perfectly fine. People are just making an issue out of it just to try and downplay the fact that the PS3 is getting Netflix streaming now also.

Maby Sony should have held out for a better solution. Booting up from a disc is just so... 1998. In my eyes MS has the better solution though neather of this effect me much since I have a PS3 and X360(whit Gold already) AND I live in Europe :)

Coolness.  I've been using the Xbox Live Netflix.  I am eager to see what the differences might be.

I wonder if the BD Live implementation will work on all BD Live compatible players?  This would be a good reason to do it disc-based for the first release.

I think Netflix said they were exactly the same, so the only differences are Gold Membership charges and using a disk instead of an installed thing. But then again, people said Ghostbusters was exactly the same on all platforms, and we all know how that went down.

Depends on the back-end stuff they're using. If they use the same codecs as the rest of the BD players, then there's no reason it shouldn't!
