Microsoft, Netflix Team On Windows Media Center

  • May 20, 2009
Microsoft has teamed with Netflix to offer more than 12,000 movies and TV episodes through its Windows Media Center program (for PCs using Windows Vista Home Premium or Ultimate).

Through the partnership, Windows users who are Netflix customers will be able to access a special Netflix channel under the Media Center's TV and Movie category, eliminating the need to look for the movies on the Web or in their Netflix queue.

"We're continuing to work with the top content providers today to make watching TV on the PC a mainstream experience for the future," said Craig Eisler, corporate vice president of entertainment client software for the TV, Video and Music Business Group at Microsoft, in a statement. "Consumers understand that content is the driving force when it comes to experiences, and with Netflix, we're underscoring our broader commitment to deliver a rich experience with Windows Media Center."--Aaron Baar
