    Guys. This method started working again!!! 3 cheers! It had stopped working for me around aug 24, 2013 and just as a last try I tried this again and gues what?!!!!!! It worked ! I’m sooooo happy! Ps3 is still the best media player for netflix that there is!

    I JUST today have encountered an extremely annoying problem: Netflix is refusing to let me sign in without setting up a psn account. Here is the funny part: I never really have got into online gaming, and for the first year and a half I just used my ps3 to play solo games. I later got Netflix, and because I didn’t have a psn account I could skip it for quite a while, eventually it required me to so I did.

    Here’s the tricky part: Knowing that many online sources aren’t secure, and PS3 has already been marred before and granted illicit access to people’s credit card information, I decided to simply limit my exposure to any financial loss. I did it by simply legally buying a gift card and using safe credentials (read: one use, no loss) credentials. I used this information to set up a Netflix account, wrote all of the information down on a flashcard as well as the date at which all money on the card would be used up and it would be time to legally buy another card and put the same hibbedy hooplah information on it.

    There was ONE MAJOR problem though: about 6 months in, Visa secretly changed up there payment system to disallow renewable payments to be made from the gift card that I was using. At that point I still had another 7 months left on my card, so it took about 2 hours calling back and forth between Netflix and Visa’s helplines (getting shunted back and forth between them) before I found out without a doubt that the error was completely coming from the Visa side, which was a serious annoyance. So, I was basically then forced to link my netflix account to a minor bank account (which I seriously do not like doing, so much so that I have a free checking account that has the sole purpose of being used for transactions online and in stores and gas stations because I never keep more than a couple hundred dollars in it, so my exposure isn’t that great, but is still considerably more than a limited gift card with a random name that has been ziplocked away in a secure location with the only connecting information wrote down on a flash card in that same location—paranoid? Maybe, but anyone who isn’t in this day and age is just another sheep being led to slaughter).

    So, to the present: I just tried to sign into Netflix on my PS3 and it is trying to force me to update the PSN, and I tried to get through simply without signing in and it isn’t letting me, and I’m mad enough to punch a Vaio. Why should I be forced to do these updates, where I randomly see advertisements for games (never used to have them on my ps3) or randomly installed stuff like Amazon (me and Amazon have beef)? Not only that, but I hate even updating Netflix, they did that lame “overhaul” a couple months back that basically made everything useless, I could care less about an interface with pictures of the highlighted shows and only displaying two rows (anyone else remember how useful the plain old interface with its 5 rows and plain writing were?) Now those lames update the boxcovers of shows every time they put out an update, which just makes it harder to find shows, but still have not done ANYTHING to improve the search function, probably because they want to distract people from how much content they are hemorrhaging . I’m pretty sure a lot of people think that but haven’t been saying it.

    Long story short, I have bought every game I’ve ever used, and I’ve got a decent sized collection although I haven’t gamed in quite a while. But I’m so SICK of being forced to update, heck I don’t even want anything to do with the PSN, that it seems like these days the only reasonable approach is to hack it or jail break it or whatever. I’ve decided to just buy another PS3 and vivisect that mug, I guess this here is one of the first stops for learning how to do that, but is there any way I could simply remove/block pieces of the PS3’s software and all its security features? I don’t even care about voiding a warranty, I’m through with all this useless goop.
    Rant over.

    The cancelation method does work ..you must first go to netflix , let the login to ps window appear then press O till it tells you to exit , after that exit the netflix app and open netflix , as soon as it loads press X till a show starts , them the psn windown will appear again, just press O
