Re: Xbox 360 to stream NetFlix Movies!

I thought it was neat until I read this at the link:

Use of streaming Watch Now videos on your Xbox 360 requires both a Netflix membership as well as an Xbox Live Gold membership, which runs about $5 a month.
As someone who doesn't play online games (and thus doesn't buy that service), I'm not interested in paying 5 bucks a month extra to watch Netflix movies instantly over my X-Box. In a little over a year's time, I would have paid for a Roku box that I can use forever at no additional charges...but X-Box would cut me off as soon as I stopped paying for that Gold membership.
Having to be a XBL Gold member does suck, but I guess Microsoft wants their chunk of the money pie as well. If this was available to Silver members, they'd get absolutely nothing.
Hating the anti-intellectual movement since before it was actually a movement.
