Nintendo 3DS owners will get a free app Thursday that will allow Netflix members to stream movies and TV shows on the device.
Taking advantage of the device’s 3D capabilities, Netflix will also offer an additional library of movies that will be available in 3D.
To be able to use the app, customers will need to have a broadband Internet connection as well as a Netflix-streaming subscription, which starts at $7.99 a month. Parental control settings on the Nintendo 3DS will also work with the Netflix app, and parental control settings for the Netflix account will also apply.
Recently, Netflix sparked controversy by turning its unlimited DVD and unlimited streaming services into two separate plans, which will increase the total price for some users by 60%.
The app should become available in Nintendo’s eShop sometime today.
