Netflix Movies on Xbox 360

Netflix and Microsoft have announced a new partnership that allows Xbox 360 game systems to stream movies from Netflix.

Starting in late fall, Netflix members will be able to instantly stream movies and TV episodes from Netflix to their televisions via a broadband connected Xbox 360. Active Netflix and Xbox Live Gold memberships are required.

For more details, you can see the press release on the Xbox site.

UPDATE, Nov. 25, 2008

Netflix on Xbox 360 is now active. See the latest press release.

  1. So this is all fine and dandy, but how about getting this to work for Mac users first?

  2. ...I can stream movies and tv shows on my Mac at www.hulu.com...when can I do that with my Netflix account. More and more the cost of Netflix begins to be less of a rationale monthly investment, considering the other viewing options on my radar. I can only consume so much, maybe Netflix isn't the right channel for me anymore.

  3. I unfortunately have to leave a ditto comment on the Mac issue. With the advent of Hulu (which seems to provide more relevant content/recent content compared to netflix for television) working on a Mac, I can't see why Netflix has issue using flash for Mac.

    also, please tell me this isn't it for the consoles, as the blue-ray playing ps3 is asking for a partnership as well! :)

  4. You're killin' me! I have a Mac and a PS3 that I would love to have Netflix streaming on. I don't have room for a Roku

    ReplyDelete
  5. I wish this was on the PS3 as well but since the Netflix CEO is on the Microsoft board, I doubt it will ever happen. :(

  6. I heard through the grapevine that the service requires that you queue up movies on a windows only application, then xbox pulls from that? I'm hoping it is a BS rumor. I'm a Mac user also - Netflix doesn't support streaming currently, which sucks. Hopefully I will be able to queue up movies for my xbox via my Netflix account and won't need Windows. Hopefully. Some clarification or link to how this will actually work would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  7. yeah, as a Mac user, I'm seeing less and less reason to continue my Netflix subscription. Right now, I'm in the middle of moving to a new state, and have paused my Netflix for the time being. And honestly, I can't say that I miss it much.

    ReplyDelete
  8. With over 80% of blu-ray owners being PS3 owners, it seems like it would make sense to have Netflix on PS3 as well. There were rumors several months ago, but where is the PS3 announcement??

    ReplyDelete
  9. This is awesome - I've been having some troubles with the Microsoft DRM on the PC I hooked up to my TV (something about NVidia drivers breaking Microsoft DRM over an S-Video port), and I'd been looking into buying a Roku box.

    Now, I think I'll just wait until i can stream straight to an XBox, and I can convert my media PC back to Linux.

    Granted, I'd still like to see support for 'Watch Instantly' on Linux and Macs, but more ways to watch Netflix is always good.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would like to second the 'Where is the Mac version?' argument. As well as the 'When will it come to PS3?' argument.

    I do love to see you guys working towards more devices. Although as I said on an earlier comment to a different post. It seems like a Microsoft love fest over at Netflix and that makes puppies cry.

    ReplyDelete
  11. agree..when will we see Mac support and PS3? Though I've heard rumors of a survey asking if PS3 owners would pay a one time fee of $3 for a disk that would allow streaming of 'watch now' titles to the system. Though, no word yet form either party.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm just salivating waiting for the PS3 announcement. Of course, until then, I'll keep hooking up my laptop and dreaming.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'll ask for PS3 and Mac support too. The Mac is simply obvious and why they still don't have it is inexcusable.

    The PS3 makes a lot of sense because it is a platform that caters to a large base of Netflix customers that use blu-ray. A lot of blu-ray players are PS3's and to not take advantage of that seems counter productive.

    Hopefully the lack of PS3 support isn't some political issue playing out.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Echoing a lot of others here. Writing this on a Mac (no streaming support for me), and have a PS3 connected to my primary TV (LCD 1080p 52") mainly for BluRay. My Onkyo receiver only has 3 HDMI inputs, all used (HTPC w/Mythv on Linux, PS3, and Toshiba HD-DVD player), so a Roku, though seemingly great, would mean giving up something else. I'd love to see streaming support for the PS3, HD streaming would be even better.

  15. As a 20 yr computer tech and a Playstation/PSP owner I am unhappy about support for XBOX. The first company to work with Sony will gain me as a customer and I will leave netflix. Microsoft again throwing their money around and selling crap.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think it would be a shame if a Netflix app wasn't also made available for the Playstation 3. This makes sense to me seeing how most Blu-ray renters are probably using the Playstation 3 anyway.

  18. Great news! I've been waiting for this for a while now, ever since the rumors started flying. I'm just glad I didn't pull the trigger on one of those roku devices.

    I feel for all the mac users out there who bring this up every time streaming is mentioned, but honestly guys, you need to start complaining to the right group. Netflix has absolutely no control over this, as they've mentioned again and again. Post here all you want about mac support, but it's like complaining to Toyota about the condition of the roads in your town. It's not going to do much good.

  20. Well, since I would rather get the $100 box for a one time fee rather than pay the $50 a year for XBL Gold. Guess this is pointless for me too.

    Though my Mac still can't do this nore the most installed console that comes WITH a web browser the Wii. But I know the Wii problems is probably from Nintendo.

  21. Hulu also works on Linux (ubuntu), which netflix of course does not.

  24. As one of the only ones NOT to complain and ask for more, more, more...it's great to see this service. I'm one of the (still) majority that owns a microsoft-based machine, and am looking forward to watching both on my PC and soon my 360. Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  25. While this is great news for me being an Xbox 360 Owner, it's not so great news for other profiles on the account. When will Watch Instantly be available for profiles? I would like to be able to have a profile Watch Instantly on my 360.

    ReplyDelete
  26. How about streaming to Windows Media Center?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Very nice. When this becomes available, I may just get an XBox. If M$ offered a blueray addon, it'd be a done deal and I'd already have one.

    Also, putting my vote for Mac + Firefox support. Hopefully this move to XBox means that silverlight is moving along. Any updates?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'd love to see PS3 support as well. If you check the Sony forums, when the $3 disc rumors started flying, there were so many PS3 owners who stated they'd sign up for Netflix in a heartbeat if PS3 streaming was offered.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have both a PS3 and a 360 and I am disappointed that Netflix will not be supporting the PS3 as well. I would think that with Netflix move to BlueRay DVD'd the PS3 would be the more natural choice! To add insult to injury I would need to pay a M$ tax of $50 a year for a gold account in addition to my Netflix subscription in order use my xbox as a networked device and stream video. I am going to take a pass on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  30. i didn't know that netflix ceo is on microsoft board - it all makes sense now.

    thanks for that, now i see. i will not hold my breath for linux and mac support then. that's not how microsoft operates.

    oh well, companies like this will be the first against the wall when the revolution comes.

    seems hulu, amazon and others will happily have my custom instead.

  31. re: kyle:

    The Mac users are crying for "more, more, more"? That's funny. It seems to me that all we want is the same extended functionality that PC users get. We're paying the same price, after all. The 360 announcement is nice and all, but the Mac situation needs to be addressed immediately. We will not wait forever.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Awesome! This is why I love Netflix and my Xbox 360! Hopefully in the future you'll allow streaming of HD movies as well!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Any chance that you'll be needing users to stress test the system before going live? I've got my Netflix subscription and XBox 360 ready to go.

  34. Does this contract with Microsoft exclude future support for the Nintendo Wii? Please don't leave out the most popular console of this generation.

  35. I joined netflix about 4-5 months ago. Since then I have raved about how happy I was with netflix. Now a few months later... I am doing just the opposite. Everybody I once talked into joining are all now dumping netflix and going to direct tv as I myself have also just gotten direct tv. But, thought maybe I would give netflix one more chance. I have sent several emails to netflix about my frustrations and have never even received an email back! Crazy.... Now this is my last attempt to tell you as I tell any and everyone thinking of signing up for netflix. First you get tons of movies on time! Then netflix puts a hold it seems on your account and your lucky to receive any movies! I started with your three movie plan when it significantly slowed I went to four as I started comparing stories with other netflixers I quickly realized that it was not just me having these problems. It was everyone! So, I got direct tv and changed to two movies. Now logging on today I ask myself.... Why were my movies not sent out today? Why will they not be sent out until Monday? Dont get that one... Now it looks as though we will not have movies until Tuesday if were lucky! I explain to all its like they get you hooked then they start to scam you. Because as your movies significantly slow or not arrive at all. You are still being charged! Every month and believe me netflix offers NOTHING to you as a valued customer for signing lots of others up. They just continue to take advantage.... Sad how such a great idea can go so wrong! Another greedy American company.... I plan to continue to spread my word. So, that others do not get taken advantage of such as myself, many family members and friends. I do not expect to receive a reply to this email as I have never received one to any of the many others sent. But, I do hope maybe others will continue to complain and maybe.... netflix will get the hint that people will and are taking other routes for there entertainment.

  36. @james Mac streaming IS within the control of Netflix. Using MS DRM was their own decision. There are plenty of systems; see for example hulu.

  40. Im really excited about this, HOWEVER, does this mean that netflix will be adding better titles to the watch instantly list? Because i dont see how it can be a plus if all the movies and tv shows offered suck.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I agree with most of this comments. Netflix should be a platform independent service in order to keep enjoying the success it has had up to now. Netflix should include PS3, Mac, and Linux withing a year. I don't think supporting the Wii will be as feasable because the console is not as versatile as the Xbox 360 or PS3.
    I do understand that Netflix needs time to figure out how to provide DRM for these other platforms, but Netflix is now a giant that can make use or resources it did not have before.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I too am very disappointed at the exclusive rights that Microsoft now has. I was planning to buy a PS3 in the near future and hoped that netflix would stream to the PS3. However since that doesn't seem to be a reality then I don't see any reason to keep netflix over blockbuster's mail service once I clear my queue.

    ReplyDelete
  43. First of all Mac users are a small percentage of the market. Besides are you asking them to be able to stream to apple tv or on your mac itself. Also if you are expecting any of this on a Linux machine you have to be kidding me. Learn to develope it yourself.

    Xbox was a good option to try this out on since Xbox Live has been shown as a stable service.

    As far as I know no PC will be involved when streaming to an Xbox.

    I would not doubt that this would be something to show up on the PS3, but I am pretty sure Sony is still trying to flush out their own features for their online system.

    I subscribe to Netflix for it's dvd service not it's Watch it now service. Since I would like to watch newer movies most of the time or a lot of movies that are not available on it's streaming service. Xbox probably would not let Netflix stream every movie since it would conflict with their movie download service. Also Netflix would also have to get buy off from all the studios to even stream most of their movies.

    I think the Netflix service is a nice to have for the Xbox, but not something I'm going to use all the time.

  44. @anonymouse

    Fact is, Apple does not license Fairplay. (Why would they? Netflix is in direct competition with iTunes and AppleTV). Windows DRM doesn't work on a Mac. There is no other universal DRM solution that all the studios agree on.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Mac my wife uses. I own an ipod. I think there are a lot of things Apple does right. However, when you hop on the Apple bandwagon, you have to realize that most of the time you're going to have to live with the Apple solution to various issues. In this case, download iTunes, start buying/renting movies from there like Apple wants you to. If widespread access and compatibility is what you seek, then buy a PC or run boot camp or parallels.

  45. Fantastic news. Any new online movie delivery system is good news in moving the medium forward.

    The Xbox Live video streaming is already a surprisingly excellent service.

    Netflix's content being added to Xbox Live will be another great choice allowing easy viewing for a millions of people.

    ReplyDelete
  46. im very happy to see 360 support coming. if/when this service goes 5.1 and hd we are going to see the usefulness of this service take off and be a real threat to bluray. it would be a real nice surprise if this fall we got a nice present when we hook up our 360's to netflix if we had some nice hd and 5.1 waiting for us.

    i do find it funny all the mac heads here toll every post no matter what its about. you guys need to wake up and realize you bought a mac and have to live with all its flaws (even if that means waiting for the silverlight version of netflix). apple wanted it this way (by not licensing their own drm) and you wanted it apples way so deal with it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. aaron, you forget that Mac users are still paying Netflix for the same service that everyone else is and companies of their size absolutely should not be treating anyone like second class citizens. Silverlight 2.0 is in beta right now and they're still keeping their Mac users in the dark. The least they could do is commit to a timeframe. How long ago did they first demo a Silverlight player? I have to believe it's ready to roll out as soon as Silverlight 2's final version hits, but it's hard not to be a little bit skeptical. Apple isn't blameless, of course, they're overly restrictive with FairPlay but it's also hard to stomach Netflix putting the blame entirely on them when they're so tied up with Microsoft.

    That said, for all you out there who can't wait anymore, I recently tried out Parallels and TinyXP version 9. Installation is a breeze and it makes Netflix watching on Intel Macs entirely painless. Comes highly recommended until a more elegant Silverlight-related solution comes along. Something to take under consideration.

  48. When will there be a plugin for Windows Media Center?

  49. Thanks. I noticed your New Releases sliders still don't have a "See All" option. I think thay are the only ones you have not added that to.

    Please addd that ASAP. Doesn't help (unless you want to antagonize your customers) to just do some and not all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just checked the "New Release Sliders" again and see that the "See All" option is still missing. Please add it ASAP. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  51. How exciting! I think it sounds like a great idea. Hopefully, it will be so successful that it will then be applied to other consoles.

    If they are making this change, will there be more movies and tv shows added to the streaming list? I feel like I've already watched all the good movies and now I'm left with the boring/B movies. It would be nice to see some more content, especially movies that were more recently released. I don't think that xbox users are really into the old MGM movies (but perhaps I'm stereotyping based on my own tastes?).

    It says late fall. Is there a definite launch date yet?

    ReplyDelete
  52. PS3 streaming - This would be a quick win-win for Netflix, but if you don't feel like waiting for the suits to do right thing for the company and the customer .... Install a Linux build to your PS3 that will run a windows emulator; run IE in the emulator and install the Netflix software. Good luck, it will take you several hours of installation and coding.

    ReplyDelete
  55. yeah, seriously. they have no idea how much they're screwing themselves by not opening it up to mac users.

    pretty lame. makes me want to sell the xbox and get a PS3 off of principle. I already felt shitty getting it in the first place.

    it wouldn't hurt anyone for them to open it up for us...and not a second-rate version.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I see that the New Releases sliders still don't have a "see All" option. I think they are the only sliders without that. I know you prefer to make it difficult for your customers to rent the newer movies but it really would be good customer service. Please add that functionality ASAP. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Since the Xbox 360 can display 1080-line HD content, I'm hoping that's how Netflix movies will be streamed through the console. I see no mention of the resolution issue anywhere. Possibly it'll only be 720p to conserve bandwidth. Anyone know?

    Same here. Canceled my Netflix account today. Since Blockbuster went out and purchased Microsoft-DRM-infected MovieLink, I guess I'll wait till one of them (or a new competitor) wakes up and smells the open, digital-restriction-free future. Also not holding my breath. I think I'll read more books...

  60. Before we start getting too far ahead of ourselves, with streaming on XBox Live, etc., I think Netflix needs to take a step back and focus on the basics of the "Watch Instantly" section. For starters, some major improvements can be made on the picture quality of the movies and shows. Almost all of the time, the movie is fuzzy, if there are subtitles, you really have to strain to read, and overall, it's not a really great movie-watching experience. Like some other users mentioned, Hulu has amazing HD-like quality, and it's free! Even sites like ABC.com offer some of their shows in HD, again, for free. So come on Netflix, step up your game!

  62. Quality definitely needs improving. I'm not sure what ABC is using for their streaming technology but the HD quality of their downloads for the TV shows such as Lost is amazing and it seems to work incredibly well over links that give fits to the Netflix service.

    The thing that most impresses about the ABC service is that it gives you SD quality to start and once it buffers enough for HD it switches to HD.

    Time for Netflix to start putting some R&D or money or both towards improving the service quality.

    i'd like to add that it is kind of unethical to be paying the same rates as a pc user, but only benefiting from partial service.

  65. More xbox 360 users than mac users,so stop crying and buy a windows PC think of all the fun you'll have getting updates..lol.
    Thanks Netflix for this great addition for the 360 users.

    I can't wait !

  66. I'm a Mac user and i think its time for us to shut up about it. We know we're giving up certain functions for a much better computer. Companies strike exclusive deals like this all the time. You could argue that delicious library should make a version for windows. Same way 360 users shouldn't complain about a lack of blu-ray....ms was in bed with hd dvd and lost. plain and simple

  67. This is awesome!!

    Mac users - whine all you want.

    PS3 users - you should be watching Blue Ray discs...why would you want to stream?

    ReplyDelete
  68. to the anon posters above....
    why wouldn't i want this for my mac or ps3. i pay the same subscription rates you do, i should get the same features. I can understand if i don't get them right away because valuable dev time is needed, but a confirmation that things will happen in the future is good enough for me. Streaming movies is a great quick way to watch a movie from netflix if your in between shipments. if i can save a queue spot by streaming the movie and putting something newer in its spot, i should have that ability. maybe i should pay less to not have the windows and game console streaming feature. or maybe xbox and windows users should pay more to have that feature available.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I'm very upset that Microsoft has exclusivity, given that I have a Wii, which supports internet connectivity.

    Netflix said they were working on Mac compatibility more than a year ago—if they can't deliver on that promise, they could at least open themselves up to as many platforms as possible.

  71. Apparently, I'm the only excited one about this. It's not like xbl gold only gives you access to instant watch, you gets lots more functionality. If you want the feature, great, if not, don't use it. PCs are dirt cheap if you really want to use your instant watch queue. Plus they gave you the roku box, so they're trying. Like they said, Apple doesn't have a universal DRM, which the STUDIOS are requiring netflix to have.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I have a 360 and a 1080p tv. I don't have Netflix, but was a past member.

    I'd love to get HD widescreen movies through my 360 and would return to Netflix when this becomes an option. But only then.

    If the content is not HD... it's not worth the membership to me.

    Streaming vid is not necessary for me, but I'd imagine downloading for later viewing is acceptable. If I really want to watch a particular HD movie right then, my cable providers OnDemand service would do fine.

    Does anyone know what Netflix will provide to 360? Or does now?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I've been a Netflix subscriber since the beginning, and I love it, but I also agree that instant viewing for Mac needs to be supported. As much as I love it, I'm considering canceling my account because of it. It's been almost a year and a half that you've been "working on a solution" to the Mac issue? Absurd.

    I won't even start with the fact that I pay the same for my plan as PC users do, but I get considerably less for it.

    My Netflix account would be totally worth it if I could watch on my mac. Now, it's an expense that's becoming hard to justify.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Neverending whining from you insufferable Mac users. You should know going in that there are many things that simply don't work for Macs or are an afterthought implementation.

    Boohoo. But the commercial said things just work for a mac

  75. Pfft, whatever man. Pay for an X-box live account AND Netflix just for the not-so-thrilling privilege of watching a low-resolution movie on my television screen? Aren't businesses supposed to provide some sort of service or value in exchange for the money they receive? The very proposition is insulting to your customers.

  76. Even Amazon has streaming video rental for Mac. Why is Netflix dragging their feet on this? If netflix does not get their act together they are going to lose a high number of customers.

  78. Ok I realize this may be a stupid sugestion but you are releasing the tech to watch movies instantly on all sorts of systems and in the fall one geared spacifically towards gamers on the X-box 360 I know from my own experience with places like game fly who does the same service as you do with video games that they are over priced and slow as hell! so the question comes to mind as i am sure all other gamers will want to know "When will we get to rent games with netflix"
    think about it you are releasing a product to a game console! and to tell people you have no intention of giving them a service they would really love to take advantage of.
    from a buisness sense it is a great idea you are telling them you want new customers to sighn up to your service so they can use it in conjunction with their game console right well if you offered the games they want you would potentially pick up a few million gamers just for the games and they would be twice as likely to want a subscription and the change is minimal the games are the same size as the movie discs and would require no modifacation to the current program you just add a game ticket to the dockett like the que for save just allow them to select two games a month at a marginal increase to the current dvd plan i know personally i would be willing to pay an extra $10-$15 a month to have this kind of service added to my account even if the games are more expensive initially it would be easy to ask that instead of an additional 4-5 dollars for the dvd's it would be $7 for a game a month add on as needed.......

  80. Exactly, MACs are losing ground (already lost ground)...why was money wasted on a MAC anyways, unless it was a Christmas present (that should have been returned). As far as the PS3, I own both the 360 and the PS3 and Playstation was too late in getting on board with the online functions. They have made up some of that ground by offering movie rentals/purchases and full game downloads, but Netflix went with the company that is making the most money from it's online features, the 360.

  81. I feel like this was announced forever ago and I haven't heard anything about this since. As a person who loves to stream video on my PC and also has a xbox subscription, I was really excited... but what happened? Wasn't it supposed to come out in the fall? I would think that September is the fall!

    All I ask for is an update or two! Please?!? Netflix? Xbox? Why isn't anyone talking?

  82. this is the best news ive heard in a long time, as for those that are complaining about having a mac and ps3but not being able to stream videos on either well maybe you shouldve bought a regular pc and an xbox 360, this goes to show why xbox is better

  83. damb rite, nicely put...
    you see it makes sense to own 360
    i dont have the problems of many ouut there,of the streaming prob.
    i hav a laptop with windows xp,so im pretty sure im set to view.
    but you know what...
    i watch movies through my media player which in turn is hooked up wirelessly to my 360,so i can dl movies n watch em on my 37'' lcd.

    good for microsoft anyway..keep it up

  86. Hey Bryan (Mac User),

    Fuck you if you are a mac user. This just tells you that you should have stuck with windows, the real OS. Now that you are with Mac, I guess you have fun driving to blockbuster...

    Fuck you Right Back. As a mac user, or any user, I dont need to drive to Blockbuster, Ill just order it on my Apple TV and watch it in High Definition not shitty sd stream quality from Netflix.
