Netflix Streaming Now Available in Windows 7

Netflix_banner I woke up this morning on a mission.  To get my HTPC upgraded to the RTM of Windows 7.  Once the reinstallation was complete, what to my wondering eyes did appear but a Netflix logo sitting on the Movies strip of my Media Center main menu!

It seems that MS has come through and right before the retail release of Windows 7 has gotten Netflix support worked in.  The downside?  It’s not showing up on my Xbox 360 extenders…

I guess this was to be expected but come on!  I get it, you want me to have and Xbox Live Gold subscription but guess what?  I already do because I’m a gamer!  Let’s not half-ass it on this on MS.  Get us Netflix on the extenders and you’ll have a ton of happy MCE users!
