Microsoft adds Netflix to Windows Media
May 22, 2009
Microsoft is adding Netflix to the list of content providers in its Windows Media Centre feature for Vista PCs as part of the company’s drive to give people more entertainment options on their computers.
Microsoft already has a deal to deliver movies from Netflix through its Xbox game console, but people can only play back movies that are available for instant streaming on that platform. The Netflix application in Windows Media Centre allows people not only to instantly stream movies that are available that way, but also to manage their own physical disc queue for DVDs they receive from Netflix in the mail.
