One Half of Netflix Subscribers Stream Through Consoles

A study by Nielsen has shown that one half of Netflix subscribers stream the content through their gaming consoles. All gaming consoles currently support streaming of Netflix content which includes the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, and the 3DS.

The Wii console is the most popular console that streams Netflix content coming in at 25% followed by the PS3 at 13% and the Xbox 360 at 12%. Consoles aren’t the only way to watch the service, 42% of subscribers watch Netflix content directly through their browser. The rest of the people watched Netflix in some other form like directly through their TV at 14%.

Whats funny is, Hulu being available on consoles is only getting 3% of their traffic that way. The data shows that Netflix is much more popular than the Hulu service at least on consoles.
