Cat out of Bag: Netflix Officially Supported in Win 7 Media Center


Hopefully this relaxes everyone in regards to having Netflix in Windows 7. I always said it made no sense that Microsoft would go through all the effort of releasing it for Vista to only have Windows 7 come a few months later without it. Breathe….breathe…enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks to Mr. Dixon for the link

Yesterday, during Steve Ballmer’s keynote at a Microsoft Financial Analyst Meeting in Seattle, Mike Ybarra (general manager of Windows Product Management at Microsoft) publicly demonstrated Netflix smoothly integrated in the Windows Media Center menu. The app will be completely touch-enabled, which I believe means it takes advantage of Windows Presentation Foundation, the new way programs are written for Windows to take advantage of the power of the GPU. No word on when it will be made available, or if it will roll out to beta, release candidate, or miscellaneous (read: Bittorrent) versions of the OS.
