1m Xbox members use Netflix service
February 6, 2009
Online DVD company Netflix has said that one million Microsoft Xbox 360 video game console users have activated Netflix’s movie streaming service in the past three months since the two companies formed a partnership.
Netflix said the Xbox LIVE community has watched 1.5 billion minutes of movies and TV episodes through its Watch Instantly video service, but did not say how many subscribers it has actually gained from the partnership.
Netflix last month said its stronger-than-expected quarterly results were propelled by growth in its Web video streaming service and that streaming was “energising” its growth.
