Figures from the streaming company suggest that PS3 viewer figures even exceeded the PC user base at certain points in 2012, making it the most popular overall Netflix device for a spell.

"PS3 is our largest TV-connected platform in terms of Netflix viewing, and this year, at times, even surpassed the PC in hours of Netflix enjoyment to become our number one platform overall," said Netflix CEO Reed Hastings.

"PS3 is a natural fit for Netflix in terms of developing and first deploying our most advanced features. We can transparently update our application with new features on a daily basis, and through the free PlayStation Network, people around the world can sign up for Netflix directly from their PS3."

A new voice user interface for the Netflix PS3 app dubbed 'Max' is currently undergoing testing.
