Netflix comes to Windows Media Center
Starting tomorrow, Windows Media Center users who are also Netflix members will gain access to more than 12,000 movies and TV episodes from Netflix directly within Windows Media Center on their PCs.
Using the two together is easy and convenient. In Windows Media Center, a new Netflix tile will appear under “TV + Movies”. To stream movies and TV shows from Netflix, just click on the new Netflix tile and login with your Netflix account.
You will be able to search the entire Netflix library right from Windows Media Center, and manage both your Instant and DVD Queues. Windows Media Center will also take advantage of Netflix’s “recommended” categories.
Here is a short video of Netflix in action in Windows Media Center:

And here is another really neat video walk-through of Netflix in Windows Media Center:
Getting Netflix in Windows Media Center
You can also use your Windows Media Center remote to navigate the player controls and queues for Netflix in Windows Media Center too!
Netflix in Windows Media Center is powered by Silverlight.
If you also have an Xbox LIVE Gold membership and have been streaming Netflix movies and TV episodes to your Xbox 360, this offering will work for you as well (same Instant and DVD queues and all!).
Netflix in Windows Media Center currently will work only for Windows Vista Home Premium and Ultimate users today.
This is very cool stuff. You may remember back in March, we launched the Windows Media Center Sports Channel, which offers a variety of interactive sports content including from CBSSports.com, FOX Sports and MSNBC.com. Now more than ever, Windows Media Center offers a great entertainment experience.
