MediaMall's PlayOn service (already on 360 & PS3) is about to enter "open" beta for the Wii, which is good news for owners looking to expand their machine's usefulness. Why? Because it streams both Netflix and Hulu, that's why.
It does this by acting as a bridge-building web interface, so you're basically just using both services' web offerings on your Wii. But still! Your Wii is hooked up to your TV, and has a remote, so surely a few people will find this of interest.
If you want to try it out, you can sign up to the beta over on MediaMall's site. You'll get a 14-day trial for free, and if you want to keep using it after that, you'll have to pay $US40.
Kotaku AU Note: Hey Netflix, bring your service down here! Hulu, too!
