New guy here....Just got my Netflix DVD in the mail and am happily watching Netflix as we speak!! Interface is as nice as my Blu Ray player...Videos look good on my plasma. Good stuff and great job Nintendo!
Just got my disk today and when run on the normal game disc channel I get error 002 running 4.2. Run it on neo gamma backuploader and it runs fine.
FNG here... A friend and I did a softmod with wiiflow 1.1 on our wii's last week, both are 4.2 machines. He did the research and sent me the files, wish I had found this site sooner, everything works fine. I think anyway.
Back to subject at hand. Put my netflix disk in watched a TV episode, then ripped the netflix disk to my hd. Worked like a champ. In fact I bought a xbox 360 about 6 months ago mainly for netflix streaming, I like the netflix interface better on the 360, but the picture quality so far is better on my wii. I won't be renewing my Live account. Great site you all have here, like I said, wish I had found it sooner.

I got the netflix disc today. From the disc channel it asks you to do a system update- but it's not necessary. I was able to use the install game feature on USB Loader GX to save the netflix disc to my external hard drive. It ran from there the first try without doing any updates. I'm using a soft modded wii with 4.1 U system menu. Everything still works fine.
To verify what many others are saying for the newcomers or others who just got or are waiting for their Netflix discs: after you have successfully softmodded your Wii using Messie's Guide, do the following:
- Insert the Netflix disc into your Wii [lol]. You will always need your Netflix disc to watch Netflix on the Wii.
- Run Neogamma [do not run the Wii disc as a Game disc directly from the main top left Wii menu].
- Choose the first option to run the DVD once inside Neogamma.
- Netflix on your Wii will run and show you an activation code. Go online into your Netflix account at: Netflix: Rent as many movies as you want for only $8.99 a month! Free Trial and activate the code there.
- Netflix on your Wii will automatically refresh and run!
- Enjoy the movies!
It works perfectly, and am watching Exiled by Johnnie To on Netflix on the Wii now.
Can i use this without creating a Netflix account or if i have to create one is there a free account option when creating an account
As far as I know, you need a paid Netflix account to enjoy the Netflix disc on the Wii. Each Netflix disc requires an activation code that Netflix gives to registered [paying] account members.

Doesn't look half bad on my 50" Panasonic plasma with component cables. Much easier for the rest of the family than using PlayOn through my original Xbox or PC
