XBOX 360 update and Netflix update - August 12, 2009, 09:49 AM

Just wanted to give a to the xbox 360 dashboard and netflix watching upgrade.

Prior to yesterday, to watch netflix movies on the xbox, you had to browse them on your pc first, then select one to be shown.

Now, you can browse netflix movies right on the xbox. The movies you can watch are still "somewhat" older, but they got better and there are definately some newer titles.

I didnt look hard enough yet, i dont think there are many HD titles, if any..

But waaaay easier to watch a ton of movies. For $10 a month, pretty good selection.

Have no idea how the "party" watching works yet. I think everyone involved needs to pay for netflix, but not positive.

In the very least it is worth it to try it for a few months.

We use Xbox to watch Netflix movies also, pretty cool feature but for old movies. That is the only thing I don't care for.

Yeah, oldies but goodies.

Under new releases, there were some fairly recent ones too.

I just looked up boxee. That looks pretty awesome!

I hate having to browse to different sites to get at their content. This looks pretty slick.

boxee is pretty good. Hulu actively "fights" it so sometimes Hulu don't work, but the other ones are pretty stable.

MediaMall PlayOn service works similar to Boxee. Plays Netflix, Hulu, CBS, YouTube, CNN, ESPN and more. It used to be really buggy but it is more stable now.

I have yet to send my XBOX back. It freezes all the time...

I don't even play my xbox anymore. If someone wants to buy it, let me know. I've got two controllers and GTA.
