@hwy_61: Not everything is gonna be available initially. They do have Daily Motion to serve your internet video needs.

Got it. Going to take a while to get used to the new Netflix interface. It's better for sure - but very different. The search is awesome. I'm going to love it once they add more content. I did the obvious "star trek" search and was happy to see Netflix thrown in with the rest, unlike earlier reports indicated. Selecting an episode launched Netflx and started the episode. Awesome.

I updated mine. The new Netflix app is needlessly more complicated, especially for TV shows.

@Geo7877 Agreed. The layout leaves a lot to be desired. The new functionality is nice though. Plus the tie in to the system search is great.

@FinalDasa: Imagine that you are each person along the chain. Somebody has to notice that it isn't working right, then they have to double-check so that they don't set off any false alarms. Then they have to tell somebody else who has to see for themselves. Then they have to go around to everybody involved and make sure it isn't some small problem that can be fixed instantly. Then they have to talk to the guy in charge of the whole operation who needs to go through the same process. Then he calls somebody else who calls Major Nelson. Then HE has to finish eating or whatever he was doing at the time, call up the head of department to get the relevant information, run his xbox at the same time so that he can confirm that it's not working, contact some other random people that need to know about this, call the PR department to make sure that he is cleared to talk and ONLY THEN can he consider pulling out his phone and tweeting a very carefully worded notice to everyone.

2 hours is probably some kind of record for this process.

This.

Is this officially out? 
 
EDIT: It looks like I can't connect to Xbox Live. I assume the servers are swamped. 
 
EDIT 2: Okay, it's telling me a new update is available, but it's unable to pull it. Swamped servers, oh joy.

Yeah, I just downloaded it and couldn't connect to Live either. Restarting my Xbox fixed it.

EDIT: Never mind, it said I connected but apparently I'm not...

He's letting people know that the update hasn't gone live. It's standard reporting and informing people of a situation. 
 
Ooh yay! Downloading now.

Agreed, to an extent, BUT I like that it starts playing the most recent episode i'm on when I click a TV show and when you get to the end, it pops up an option to go straight to the next episode. Once I get used to the rest, I think I'll like it, but I've never been a fan of Netflix's layout for TV series. I would personally love a Play All option or Continuous Play option of some kind.

So what's to report, GB?

Here, have a pageview.

This is why game journalism isn't taken seriously (posting non stories, sensationalism, brand loyalty.. ect), but I digress.

Are you two just trying to act stupid?

The news was that a rep for Microsoft said is wouldn't be out on time. You know so that people who were expecting the update knew what was going on.

Try restarting and running a live diagnostic. When I did that, the update started.

It looks funky. I was hoping htey had gotten rid of that ugly grey fox at the bottom of the screen so my backgrounds showed better.
