Netflix Wii streaming discs to arrive in mailboxes tomorrow

Netflix has sent out emails to customers who pre-ordered the Wii's instant streaming disc, indicating that the disc will arrive in mailboxes tomorrow, and that the service will likely start within the next day.

Starting tomorrow, all three of the major home consoles may have something in common--Netflix "Watch Instantly" streaming capability. Customers who pre-ordered the disc upon the announcement of the service back in January are now receiving emails (the body of the email is shown above) indicating that the discs will arrive tomorrow.

While Nintendo and Netflix have yet to make an official announcement, the language of the email and the fact that the PS3's "Watch Instantly" feature was available when the discs were dispatched makes it seem as though the service will be ready when the discs start landing in mailboxes. We've pinged our Nintendo rep for confirmation, just to be safe.

Netflix-using Wii owners--did you sign up for the service? Have you received the email yet?
