Instant-streaming discs are on their way to all Netflix subscribers who requested one for their Nintendo Wii, the online video rental service said in a blog post Monday.

Wii owners who have been waiting for the ability to view movies and television shows on their Wii consoles via Netflix can expect to receive the discs within the next few days. After getting the disc, they need only to insert it into the Wii to access all the content on Neflix's streaming service.

Netflix streaming for the Wii was originally announced in January. The company officially brought streaming to the Wii last month when it announced that some of its subscribers would be able to test the service on their consoles.

Last month, CNET's Matthew Moskovciak took Netflix for a spin on the Wii. Overall, he called it a "solid upgrade for Wii owners."
