Netflix in Playstation Vita launch

Online video service Netflix is to launch via new computer game console Playstation Vita after striking a deal with its parent company Sony.

The move will make Netflix’s streaming service available via the handheld console, which is the successor to the Playstation Portable. The agreement will initially cover Netflix’s subscribers in the United States, Canada and Latin America, but the company hopes to roll it out in the UK and Ireland over the coming months.

“We are very excited that Netflix is available on PS Vita at launch,” said Greg Peters, vice president of product development at Netflix. “Many Netflix members love their PlayStation entertainment consoles and handhelds. We’re glad to offer PS Vita users the ability to enjoy Netflix wherever and whenever they want.”
