HD Netflix Streaming Rolls Out With New Xbox Experience

Our friends at EngadgetHD have confirmed that HD Netflix streaming is being rolled out with the New Xbox Experience on November 19th. The HD Netflix streaming is exclusive to the Xbox 360 for now, as the Roku, LG/Samsung Blu-ray players, and PCs won’t have access the new HD content for the time being.

The Netflix HD roll out will begin with around 300 titles, with more to come in the future.

You must be an Xbox Live Gold member to use the Netflix streaming service.

We wonder how much this will canibalize content sales from the Xbox Live Video Marketplace.

    “You must be an Xbox Live Gold member to use the Netflix streaming service.”

    UNLESS, you don’t mind having your PC running and have PlayOn installed and running, in which case you’re supposedly not going to have to have an XBLG subscription, just a Netflix sub. AND, it will also work with PS3 or practically any UPnP client box.
