In a survey currently doing the rounds sent out by Netflix, it seems they have big plans up their sleeves for subscribers. Apparently as of now you can stream content from them directly to your TV so long as you have an Xbox Live account. Hit the jump for a screenshot.
The screenshot above suggests that this function is already available, however if it is, it seems surprising that Microsoft didn’t make some sort of announcement. The good news is that it is certainly on its way if it isn’t here yet. The extra bonus of course is that it costs nothing extra to do at all, and still gives you access to a wide range of movies, much larger than what the Xbox LIve Video Marketplace offers (don’t expect the Blu-Ray movies to be streamable though!).
Let us know if this service is available to you already, and if it isn’t, you know what to expect in the near future. It seems surprising that Microsoft would let Netflix go head to head with their Xbox Live Video Marketplace, but it’s a wise choice nonetheless.
