Starting today, those who use Netflix instant stream on their XB360 and own a Kinect, will now be able to use their motion sensor and voice to watch movies and TV shows. The Kinect allows XB360 owners to control their system and certain apps without the use of a controller.
“Since its launch, Netflix has always been one of the most popular services on Xbox Live, so we are excited to deliver a brand new way to control this experience in a way that can’t be found anywhere else.” Pete Thompson, XBL General Manager.
Word of advice, if you plan on watching something on Netflix today; make sure you leave some time for the download to take place. For some, the download rate might take several minutes to complete.
