Consoles To Boost Netflix User Base In 2010 Says Analyst

Industry analyst Michael Pachter believes that this year there will be 3 million new users in the Netflix community. It is already fact that the Xbox 360 has helped Netflix to raise their user base, so it probably would continue to grow now that the availability of the service is across the 3 systems. Pachter commented:
"We believe that the Xbox 360 helped Netflix add 800,000 customers in 2009, a figure that we had expected the PS3 and Wii to each replicate in 2010."

"Further, the Wii audience has demonstrated little commitment to buying videogames (attach rates are at historical console lows), leading us to suspect that many Wiis are relegated to the playroom or (heaven forbid) the closet."
Curious assessment of the Wii... In all this we must well keep in mind the Netflix iPad app which is already one of the most popular 3rd party apps available.

The service has been accessible for some time on both the Xbox 360 and PS3, and has barely just been made for the Wii, so it is fair to say that this year will probably be a good on in Netflix offices. Add up the iPad support with the app to heave a promising year for them.
