Today is the day that XBox 360 owners are getting the “New XBox Experience” update, which is completely changing the Xbox 360 dashboard to be more like that of the Wii…
With this change, Netflix is also releasing HD streaming from their service to XBox Live Gold members. You have to be a Netflix member, too, of course.
So, the question is: How does this affect Redbox?
As I have mentioned before, I do believe streaming is the future for movies and tv shows, but that future is not quite here yet. For me, the $1 price tag, the newest releases, and with the small inconvenience of stopping by one of the five Redbox locations within a mile of my house still make Redbox my #1 choice.
Have you used Netflix on the XBox 360? Will you try out their new HD streaming service?
Let us know what you think.
