Xbox 360 becomes the first console to offer HD Netflix streaming.
The partnership announced between Netflix and Microsoft has finally blossomed, with the announcement that the Xbox 360 will get access to streaming HD Netflix.
There’s no other way to stream Netflix in HD at the moment, so it’s a feather in Microsoft’s cap. You’ll need an Xbox Live GOLD account to get access, but otherwise the streaming is free, not including anything incurred on your download cap of course.
When you consider the possibilities with the new Xbox Live Experience and the party feature – enabling you to watch content with friends, in this case – it’s something pretty special, and one reason why Netflix has just extended the life of the Xbox 360 for quite a few years.
