Netflix Wii Discs in Short Supply for Canadian Users, Free One Month Offer Extended

Netflix has extended its free one month trial membership to Canadians users looking to utilize the Nintendo Wii as their primary streaming device. According to emails sent to Netflix users, streaming discs for the Nintendo Wii are in short supply and have seen a delay going to some new members.

In response, Netflix has decided to offer an extra week of free service to users who are forced to wait for the required disc. Users who managed to order before the supply was depleteted have already received notifications that Wii discs are in the mail.

"We recognize that this is not a great way to begin your Netflix membership," delay notification emails read. "So that you can thoroughly experience watching movies and TV episodes from Netflix via your Wii, we are extending your free trial by one week." Trial extensions will be done automatically.

Now the only thing Canadians wait for is word of the Xbox 360 application and an apology for the current crap crop of content available on the service in the Great White North.
