Awesome. smile.gif

I just checked it out and it works. I don't like using credit cards in general, and now there is no need to go to a store and purchase pre-paid PSN cards any more.

Not the link to Account Details in the column on the left, but the Account tab in the row at the top. You should then see something like this when you click on the Wallet link:





So it's Sign In-->Account-->Wallet-->PayPal. If it isn't appearing for you, contact Sony to ask why.

I did the same steps but it gives me an error.

Has anyone else tried this... I am leery about joining PlayStation®Plus. I have also read horror stories on Amazom about purchasing PSN Cards on Amazon. Codes not recognized and long waiting times (four hours or more) to get codes.

No reason to be leery about PS+. It's one of the best deals in gaming today for regular PSN customers.

Be leery if you don't play a lot. I have it and download all the free games that look good. But I never play them, so not much value. If you only play a few hours a week, PS Plus is not for you.

Now, I used to play a bit more. But now we're back to frame rate issues, tearing issues, pop in, etc. It's obvious that the PS3 is well past its expiration date. When PS4 launches, PS Plus will become relevant again. Until then, I say save your fifty bucks.

Silly me,I just got a new PS3 in December... I was ready to connect the Netflix on the PS3 when I found out I needed to spend $50.00 a year just to connect it... It is only about $4.00 a month but I am cheap. I already have an Original Roku Streaming unit. No cost other than original purchase price to use it... Other than my $8.56 Netflix Streaming fee a month...

Netflix won't let you use your existing account on a PS3? I didn't know Netflix tied your account to one machine. Connecting your PS3 online costs nothing unless you decide to buy another subscription to something.

I don't think it is clear he has an existing Netflix account. Perhaps he felt that the PS3 would give him free access.

I think PS+ is good for a player that plays a couple hours a week. For the price of one game you get a year's worth of a variety of games. If you only play a couple of hours a week its hard to justify buying more than 3 or 4 full games a year. But for the cost of just one of those games you get new stuff every week. The one hour trials are great for this also. Maybe an hour was all you were ever going to play of Need For Speed anyway!

From Radio's post above it does sound like he already has a Netflix account.

Radio you do not need to buy a PS+ subscription for Netflix. What you do need is a Playstation account (which is free). Create your free Playstation ID and then open up Netflix on your PS3. There you will be able to enter your Netflix username and password. I believe Netflix allows you to have accounts set up on 6 devices. Your new PS3 would now be one of them.

RadioWonder might be confusing Plus with Xbox's policy which requires the Live membership to use the Netflix app. There must be another reason it didn't launch for you on the PS3. I'm able to stream on a Roku, PS3, Kindle Fire, and PC no problem and paying no extra fees to anyone.

I am so sorry,I got PSN mixed up with PS+...I do have a PSN account... My PS3 is now streaming Netflix... Yes,I do have a Netflix account. I stream Netflix with my Roku player also... I talked to a Netflix tech person a few days ago and she said I could have 2 streaming players on my account free.
Sorry I have not been back,I have been watching Mass Effect video Walkthroughs... Thanks for getting me straightened out...biggrin.gif

My PS3 Media / Blu-ray Disc™ Remote Control makes watching Netflix a real joy!

Not to turn this into a Netflix streaming thread, but hopefully to get us back on track, here's what Netflix's ToS state:
Quote:
YOU MAY INSTANTLY WATCH ON UP TO SIX UNIQUE AUTHORIZED NETFLIX READY DEVICES. YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO INSTANTLY WATCH SIMULTANEOUSLY ON TWO SUCH DEVICES AT ANY GIVEN TIME. For certain membership plans, you may instantly watch simultaneously on additional Netflix ready devices within your household. Go to “Your Account” page on the Netflix website to view the number of devices on which you may simultaneously view movies & TV shows that are associated with your plan. The number of devices and concurrent streams may change without notice to you. For certain limited membership plans in the United States, your available Netflix ready device may be limited to personal computers.

The official statement is that you can have six activated devices (for me: 2x 360, PS3, 2x iPad, iPhone). PCs don't count and activating a new device knocks the oldest device off the activation list. Haven't used your Roku in six months, but got a new iPad, TV, phone, and Wii U? The Roku will need activating when you come back to it.

You also get two simultaneous streams with the standard $8 streaming-only service. In practice this can be three or four streams at once, but they will lock it down to two if they find you abusing it. They don't want multiple households sharing a single account, but they also don't want to punish reasonable watching within a household. If you also subscribe to discs, then you get as many simultaneous streams as discs. 4-Disc plan? 4 streams.
