Microsoft Offers Netflix Movies and TV via Windows Media Center

Microsoft is now offering more than 12,000 movies and TV episodes from Netflix via the Windows Media Center on PCs with Windows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate. The Netflix instant watching in Windows Media Center is powered by Microsoft Silverlight.

Windows Vista customers who are also Netflix members can start Windows Media Center on their PC and then select the new Netflix tile under TV+Movies to begin streaming movies and TV episodes instantly. People can also search the entire Netflix library, manage both their instant and DVD Queues, and even filter searches by titles that are available to watch instantly. Windows Media Center takes advantage of the Netflix recommended category lists to make it even easier to quickly find the movies and TV shows that consumers want to watch.

In addition to Windows Media Center users, Xbox 360 system owners already have access to watch movies and TV episodes instantly from Netflix via an Xbox LIVE Gold Membership. http://www.microsoft.com
