Online DVD rental company Netflix Inc inked a deal video game console maker Nintendo to allow Wii users to stream movies and TV episodes to their television sets.

The move comes months after Netflix started streaming movies through Sony Corp's PlayStation 3 video game console.

Microsoft's Xbox has been streaming movies via Netflix since 2008.

Netflix will go live on Wii, the best-selling home console, this spring in the U.S. at no additional cost to Netflix members who have a plan starting at $8.99 a month, the company said in a statement.

Shares of Netflix closed at $52.37 Tuesday on Nasdaq.
