    Getting the Netflix streaming movie feature to work on XBOX360 and other Windows Media Center Extenders would be a TOTAL game changer for both the XBOX 360 and Netflix. With the introduction of the AppleTV "Take Two", the ability to provide this Netflix functionality, along with an elegant podcast subscription mechanism that integrates with Zune store, creates some strong competition in the video delivery marketplace.

    It's unfortunate that XBOX360 backed the wrong pony w/ respect to HD-DVD/Blu-Ray. Nevertheless, I believe consumers are hungry for ON-DEMAND video services that transform the way we consume media. It’s my hope that these services can ‘leapfrog’ the ‘physical media’ (shiny discs) altogether. Combine this type of service w/ the social aspect of XBOX Live and the scenarios create themselves...

    "Recommend movies/tv shows/podcasts to friends/family/co-workers and generate discussions around those media”

    Media consumption is social (Shared View) ~ “Chat over XBOX Live while watching your favorite show with your mother/sister/father/friend/brother who is ½ a world away. They’re not on the couch next to you, but it’s an improvement over not being there at all.”

    … I could go on… but there is work to be done.
