Not all the promised features of the New Xbox Experience will arrive on November 19, but streaming of HD movies from Netflix will and and it’s a first for Microsoft:
It’s something you can’t get on the Roku. Nor on LG’s BD300. Nor on Samsung’s P2500 / P2550 Blu-ray players. Nor through Netflix’s own "Watch Instantly" portal. It’s high-def Netflix streaming, and it’s coming first to Microsoft’s Xbox 360. Yes friends, when the all new dashboard hits on November 19th, with it will come HD Netflix streaming for (US-based, presumably) Xbox Live Gold members.
There will only be 300 movies to start with and all the details haven’t been released yet, but it is on the way. For more on the interface changes coming in the New Xbox Experience, see Engadget’s exclusive first look.
