Half of Netflix streaming viewers watch the service from their game consoles, according to Nielsen.
It shows that the game console really is becoming more of a general-purpose entertainment device, and that Netflix was smart to pursue deals with all three console makers early on.
Microsoft and Sony have been positioning the game console as a general entertainment device for a few years now, but the number-one game console for Netflix users is actually Nintendo’s Wii — 25% of Netflix streaming users say they get the service through their Wii, compared with 13% on the PS3 and 12% on Xbox Live.

The data comes from more than 12,000 online interviews conducted in March.
