Netflix CEO: Chances of Nintendo Wii Support Are "Excellent"S

Without a hint of doubt, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings says that chances of Netflix on Nintendo—are "excellent." Stir that together with October's confident rumors about forthcoming Netflix support on the Wii and, well, you get it.

The quote came in response to an onstage question from AllThingsD's Peter Kafka, during an interview here at CES. The choice of "Nintendo" rather than "Wii" terminology was Kafka's choice, and was kind of unfortunate, because the only caveat to October's rumors was that Netflix may be waiting for Nintendo's next-gen product. In any case, it's not a confirmation, but it's close—Wii people, don't let your hopes for native Netflix die quite yet.
