Sony is pretty happy with some recent findings by Netflix that place the PlayStation 3 as the number one TV-connected device used for streaming the online video provider's content. Netflix even said that, on occasion, the PlayStation 3 actually surpassed the PC in hours of Netflix enjoyment and made it to number one overall.

Impressive. Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix, had the following to say:

 

PS3 is our largest TV-connected platform in terms of Netflix viewing, and this year, at times, even surpassed the PC in hours of Netflix enjoyment to become our number one platform overall. PS3 is a natural fit for Netflix in terms of developing and first deploying our most advanced features. We can transparently update our application with new features on a daily basis, and through the free PlayStation Network, people around the world can sign up for Netflix directly from their PS3.

 

Sony then, in their announcement post, goes on to brag about how all of the improvements that Netflix later debuted on consoles started off on the PlayStation 3. Really, it is just a post with them bragging, but it is interesting that the PS3 has the most subscribers. Maybe people are using the money they would have spent on Xbox Live on a Netflix subscription instead?
