Nintendo may have been the last of the three console manufacturers to get Netflix instant streaming running on their system, but if the latest numbers are to be believed, they're doing quite well with it.

Speaking to CNBC (via Yahoo Finance), Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that "almost 1 million Wii users have 'participated' in the Netflix streaming system so far." This is after the service officially launched less than a month ago on April 12. Comparatively, Yahoo Finance points out that it took three months to get a million Netflix instant view users on Xbox 360.
