Netflix's instant watch feature on 360

#1 Posted by Wolverine (4281 posts) -

I really like this feature I can't wait to watch the Office on my tv for a change instead of my computer. Do any of you guys use netflix now and if you don't are you going to start using it because of this feature?

You could just get Netflix to mail the DVD to your house, and watch it on your DVD player.

Yeah but for TV shows it is a pain because I have to keep sending discs back and there are usually 4 discs a season.

I might get it.  How much is it?  Because I'm already paying $25 a month for a Game Fly subscription.

Hey Batman, the plans $9 and up work with xbox. You should check it out on netflix.com.

$9?  That's reasonably affordable.  I'll check out the site.  Though I understand that the instant watch feature is only limited to certain movies and shows.

I might get it. Only if there a lot of things that I want to watch.

I brought my 360 for gaming. This does not really appeal to much to me.

I'll let other people pay for the Netflix while I watch the free movies in their party. :D

I can't wait to use this for TV shows.  There's quite a few series I never got around to watching and want to check out.  The Netflix disc service doesn't work well for TV shows.  The streaming service is perfect for it.

Meh, just another feature I won't be using that has nothing to do with gaming.

Does anybody know what they plan to do in Canada? I know Netflix had a plan to expand to Canada but never got around to it, and with this new announcement, maybe they'll start it up in Canada.

Watching Beavers fight Moose to the death all day gets dull. I want to see it in HD. Granted, Netflix isn't in HD >___>

You have to be a gold member of xbox live and a member of netflix with a monthly fee of $8.99 or more a month.

Yeah, I will end up setting up an account with Netflix.  The ability to share movies will be great.
