That's not Netflix fault. The content holders have been trying to kill Netflix for a while now. Using games consoles was just another way for them to stay relevant. Original content is the next thing. They should partner with the console makers to make them a bigger player. It would have been smart for Microsoft to try to buy them. MS carry more weight in negotiations. It seems now that Microsoft has gone their own route. But making your own content is the key to the future of online streaming. The next Harry Potter or Game of Thrones is still out there.

Games333 I agree I had the EU netflix which is trash compared to the US netflix, even using a fake dns to access the us netflix I pretty much had seen every horror worth watching -___-

This.. tried the EU trial, took one look and that was that, learned how to get the US version working and haven't looked back since. It's services like netflix that help to combat piracy, it's much more convenient to stream a hd movie than download it plus at it's current price, it's affordable by almost anyone who can afford a PC and an internet connection.

Netflix finally added some Cartoon Network shows, so I started watching for the first time in a while, but Red Box streaming on 360 is what the cool kids do now.

netflix on 360 sucks you need xbl gold to access it even though you are paying 6 quid a month for it and even when you get xbl gold you get bs errors no all the time but enough to use netflix elsewhere

Too obvious of a troll. While I agree netflix shouldnt be part of a live subscription, there arent ever errors when using it.

my id is outwar6010 im in the uk and im not alone. I get errors 4 out if 10 shows/ movies. The error says some bs about how i need a xbl gold account(which i do) or another error that i remember what it says. Both of which need me to restart the 360 and sign in again for it to work.

They finally added shows like Dexter's Laboratory, Ed Edd n Eddy, and Samurai Jack. Which is great for me because I haven't seen any of those shows in such a long time.
