    I bought my husband a ps3 he wants to install Netflix can he use his phone WiFi for internet connection

    You can Sarah. The only problem is that mobile data tends to be more expensive and depending on the stream quality, can use a lot of data.
    For this reason an uncapped connection is usually favored.
