Starting today, current Netflix subscribers in the U.S. and Canada (the only two countries where Netflix is available) can access the Watch Instantly service via the Wii Menu with a broadband Internet connection.
Netflix started shipping the streaming discs for the Nintendo Wii earlier this year, so that wasn't a bad turnaround time to make things more simple. Just don't forget to recycle your discs now.
