Playstation network?

So I know it was hacked and all that, which I don't really care a lot about because we never use our PS3 for games, but I do have Netflix. I've been having issues with my PS3 anyway (well, mostly the controller), and I know this is dumb, but do you have to be signed into the network to use Netflix? Also, has anyone heard when it will be up again?

  • No, you do NOT have to have the network in order to use Netflix. Possibly May 4th it will be back on.

  • Um...Nope, you do NOT have to sign in to watch Netflix. Yes, you have to be online, just not on Playstation Network. LOL

  • Yes, you probably have to have the network up to be able to access Netflix. Because you have to be able to get online to get to Netflix.

  • YES! LOL Hopefully it will work for me. I'm on the last episode of season 7 of Gilmore Girls on DVD now, so I really hope I can get the Netflix to work. In the past (and the reason I asked), I had issues once or twice when it was signed out of the Playstation network, but other times it would work.

  • Braden says to just click yes when it asks you to sign in, then, when it tells you it's undermaintainence, it should still let you on.

  • No, I've been using Netflix just fine since the hacking. It does ask me to login and I do and then it says the network is down and lets me go about my business.
