Netflix Seriously Considering Streaming on the Nintendo DS?

A Kotaku reader took a survey that asked about Netflix streaming on the Nintendo DS, and it was very similar to the recent iPhone survey.
Imagine that Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to instantly watch movies and & TV episodes on their Nintendo DS. The selection available to instantly watch includes some new releases, lots of classics and TV episodes. There are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, rewind, and pause or watch again. The movies & TV episodes you instantly watch are included in your Netflix membership at no additional fee.
My kids each have a Nintendo DS, and while I found sites that claim to be able to display video on the DS, I'm having trouble believing that the experience could be enjoyable on the 256x192 pixel screen. The installed base for the Nintendo DS is estimated to be around 152 million units, and it could be one of the largest potential markets for Netflix streaming.
