Xbox 360 Gets Brand New Interface, Netflix HD Streaming

It looks like New Xbox Experience is going live today and man, are we stoked. Expect a brand new user-interface with new channels, avatars, and *cue drumroll* Netflix streaming! That's right, you'll essentially be able to stream any movie onto your big screen without having to buy another box. It's like having almost every single movie ever made, in crisp high-definition, right at your fingertips. Like a pompous DVD collector's worst nightmare.

We gather the Netflix instant cue means it will stream immediately in high definition - something that's been hard to come by with any other hardware platform we can think of.

How's it all work? Well you need to be an Xbox Live member of Gold status and have a Netflix subscription to partake in the high-def goodness. The cheapest package from Netflix that allows instant cue is $8.99, an excellent value considering what you'll be getting.
