    Probably soon, when Nintendo of Europe strikes a deal with them. I don't recommend a 3DS to watch movies though. Low Res and small screen.

    I watched practically all of Arrested Development on the 3DS. It isn't that bad.

    In general people will have a smartphone or even better a tablet which has better screens than the 3DS, although if your options are limited and running low on battery on other devices, 3DS can do the job perfectly fine as well.

    I really want a 3DS XL. Not happening this year cos of the Wii U focus. :(

    I have a tablet but still use my 3DS thanks to the size.

    I also really want a 3DS XL, for various reasons, but relevant ones being that it would make watching videos and Netflex simply more pleasing, but I'm poor, so I'll wait patiently.

    Whatever works for you I don't object, I'm just saying it's a pity 3DS didn't have a higher res and bigger screens at least 4 inches. It would have been a little more better. :) Oh well...

    Netflix will come to the 3DS in the UK when Nintendo wants it to.

    Yeah, I do wish they used up more the top flaps space. Oh well, maybe in a XL.

    Actually, things don't look that bad on the 3DS. Videos made at top quality with the 3DS video converter look better than those on Netflix, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching things on it. I watched almost all of Speed Grapher on it during my "random anime" Summer last year and it wasn't half bad.

    Never heard of Yarnton nor Shibata. Probably just your regular kinda CEO.

    out of nowhere....
    I read in Nintendo Gamer that Netflix do not intend to release it in the UK for the 3DS any time soon. The exact quote was

    We asked Netflix and they said "We have no plans to expand coverage of Netflix on the 3DS into UK/Ireland. This may change in the future though"

    Issue 76 Page 52 if you are interested.
