So I got the Netflix app a few days ago. Tried it out, and found it to be a little glitchy, crashing 3 times while I tried to explore and play a few different movies, but mostly acceptable. I just flipped the PS3 on to watch something after not touching it fr a few days, and I can only get an error message - "We're unable to connect you to Netflix. Please try gain later."
I just noticed that I can't access Netflix watch it now through my laptop, either, so maybe this is just a Netflix issue and not a PS3 issue.
Since I'm here, has anyone gotten a good feel for the non-disc interface? I much preferred working through the disc, only because it seemed a lot faster. When it worked, the XMB interface seemed ok, but I still prefer the size and layout of the disc interface.
