Netflix update brings Kinect controls, more

Microsoft and Netflix have delivered a new update for the Xbox 360 that brings new functions to the app, the former's Larry Hryb revealed. The revamped media streaming client includes the ability to skip forward an back through movies and shows with buttons. Users with Kinect can also perform this using their voice or by waving their hand.

Equally new is a Zoom feature that lets users get rid of the letterbox by enlarging content to fill the entire screen. The color contrast has been enhanced to provide better colors and darker blacks.

Users will now have the ability to sign on to their Netflix accounts from other Xbox consoles as well. Finally, Netflix members in Canada, Latin America, the UK, and Ireland get the newfound ability to share TV shows and movies through Facebook.

Access is limited to Xbox Live Gold members so far.
