    Thumbs up Netflix partnering with XBOX

    This is sweet:

    Xbox pacts with Netflix

    If you have XBOX Live and a Netflix account, we will soon be able to access their online content! Pumped.

    I've never used the streaming feature on my PC but I would definitely stream through my XBOX.

    The web stream is nice. I use it from time to time. How it will look on the big screen may be interesting.

    I currently use Windows Media Center to stream Netflix to a large TV - it looks great, so no worries on that front.

    I guess I don't see how this is a big announcement since you can currently plug your laptop into your TV and do the same thing. I guess it would just reduce the work of plugging in an extra cable.

    And having to unplug and then plug in the laptop everytime you wanted to do something besides watch movies.

    I don't personally have a need for netflix, but it's still pretty cool, and a good get for the Xbox.

    That and I utilize the digital audio through a fiber optic cable on my XBOX... it will sound much better with this partnership.
