Nextflix on PS3 can now be controlled via mobile

Netflix has updated its PS3 app, allowing you to control the service via any mobile or tablet device paired to a PS3.

To use this function you'll have to make sure that your PS3 is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the mobile device. From there, you have to boot up Netflix on both platforms, select what you want to watch on your mobile device and you'll then get a prompt that lets you choose whether you want playback to occur on your PS3 or mobile device.

If it all works, then you'll be able to fast forward, rewind, pause and choose different content to watch.

Sounds pretty great. Let us know if you manage to use this feature successfully.

Who needs Smartglass eh? Isn't this just the exact same function?

Nice addition, but I don't really use Netflix on the PS3 or Xbox 360 since I had the Apple TV.

looks cool. Have Netflix on my PS3 and it's really good. watched the whole season of Firefly on it! Good mix of old series and new. Doubt my phone will be able to do this though.

I love Netflix on PS3 and all my other devices. This little feature does work pretty damn well, even if its utterly pointless!

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
