Tired of popping slotting a disc into your PS3 every time you want to watch a streaming Netflix movie or TV show? Soon you won’t have to, as the online video rental service has plans to make Netflix Instant Streaming a native PS3 application by the end of October.

In delivering his company’s Q2 2010 financial results, CEO Reed Hastings stated, “Before our next [earnings] call in October, we expect to be launching a major new version of our Sony PS3 user interface which doesn’t require a disc, and is dynamically updated continuously with the latest Netflix UI improvements. “

So, there you have it. When contacted for comment, PS3′s Hulu Plus app said that it “welcomes the competition for media streaming on PS3 . .. and prime placement on the XMB. “
