It doesn’t matter what console you have because you need ps network to access the ps store and install Netflix and sign into it and actually play movies and tv shows (to be honest… the only thing that doesn’t require internet is scrolling through the pages.)

Well I have a play station 3 slim version if that helps. However interface would remain more or less the same. You just need to connect the Ethernet cable to your PS3 Console. Go the settings tab, den network settings and select connect.

Once your connected to the internet, go to the PlayStation Store and download Netflix. Enter your credentials and your good to go. Trust me it sounds complicated however when your done you will surprised to how easy it.

You can force an update by deleting the app and re-installing. Normally it keeps itself up to date.

NB: The last time I used it, it still sucked. I switched to Apple TV for my Netflix viewing.

If you're experiencing choppy or freezing video while streaming Netflix on your PlayStation 3, it's typically caused by an issue with storing and retrieving information from the PS3's memory. In these cases, video choppiness will usually happen on all titles, immediately or after a brief window of normal playback.
