Out of the 10,000 or so Netflix movies and TV episodes which will be coming to the Xbox on November 19th, there will also be 300 HD movies available for streaming, too. This feature is only going to be found on Xbox 360, not on the other Netflix media consoles like the Roku nor on Netflix’s own “Watch Instantly” portal. It’s an exclusive feature just for Xbox LIVE subscribers (in the U.S.)…well, at least for now. I’m not sure about you, but I’m not exactly rushing out to get a Blu-ray drive now that I know I can just stream HD movies instead.
Oh, and for those who were fretting about the HD Netflix HDCP restrictions – Engadget just debunked that. Stream away!
