this site says Xbox360 + Netflix = watch now?


Not only can you watch Netflix's Watch Now streaming movies on your HTPC and Xbox 360, you can now watch them on unlimited PCs just with a quick registry trick. The "trick", which is just copying the registry entry from a working machine onto a new one, can only be done with XP->XP or Vista->Vista, but you have three licenses to watch so that shouldn't be a problem. Now all that's left is finding something worth watching in the gimped catalog of movies Netflix offers for streaming.

i dont recall hearing anything offical?

not officially. people figured out how to get the Netflix unlimited view content to play through Vista Media Center on PCs and on the 360 through Media Center Extender. the "hack" so to say also allows for downloading the videos, but that's not legal.
