Netflix Movies on Xbox 360

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

New genre pages

We have a new layout and design for genre pages.

There are larger images, and easy-to-scan rows. You can use 'sliders' to click through to more movies without leaving the page, like we have in our new releases section. If you don't want to use the 'sliders', you can choose to see the full set in a new page. These are in a gallery-type format, and you can toggle to see them in a sortable list view. We also updated the color scheme.

The new pages are responsive, so if you rate movies you'll likely see a row of suggestions for you in that genre, and we will highlight your preferred sub-genres as well.

Take a look, and let us know what you think.
