The Connected Home Theater: Netflix Coming To The Xbox 360
Xbox Live Gold members who are also Netflix subscribers will be able to stream Netflix movies to their Xbox 360's this fall for no additional costs besides those they already pay for their existing subscriptions. The partnership was announced yesterday at the E3 gaming conference and will bring over 10, 000 TV shows and movies to members when it launches. Combining the new Netflix offerings with other Xbox Live content means the Xbox 360 will be home to more content than any other "connected" device on the market at the moment.
Users simply add TV shows or movies to their instant Queues on the Netflix website, which will then automatically display on the Xbox Live interface. Flicks will take as little as 30 seconds to begin playing and users will be able to stop, fast forward, and rewind using the Xbox 360 remote.
