Win Media Center Netflix

Microsoft today quietly added Netflix support to Windows Media Center. The extension gives it features above and beyond athe Xbox 360 and lets users both add to as well as play their Watch Instantly movie queues. It can also auto-suggest new movies based on existing viewing habits. The addition gives home theater PCs access to a 10-foot media interface instead of having to use the Netflix website itself to stream shows.

The feature requires Windows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate but doesn't require manually updating Media Center to activate the feature. Netflix itself requires a monthly subscription that qualifies for Watch Instantly, which includes nearly all plans.
