Kinect support for Netflix

Today we released an update to the Netflix experience on Xbox 360. The next time you start up Netflix, you’ll be prompted to accept the update which introduces Kinect support for Netflix.
That means controller-free navigation of thousands of movies and TV show, allowing you to use just the sound of your voice or wave of your hand to control your favorite Netflix content.
You’ll be able to select movies and TV shows recommended for you by Netflix, as well as play, pause, fast forward and rewind using gesture or voice. Kinect support for Netflix on Xbox LIVE will also feature an exclusive new recommendation channel that is controller-free and uses a smart engine to suggest movies or TV shows based on your viewing habits and instant queue.

Try it out and let me know what you think.

    My Adroid phone has awesome voice recognition for searching Google. Why can’t the Kinect have the same abilities when giving commands or searching for movies (or music with my Zune Pass)? Is Windows Phone as bad?

    Even though basic functionality right now, I like not having to fumble with my remote to pause, rewind, or FF through a movie.

    Voice recognition is awesome. But would like to do with motion selection.

    How hard is it to enable “UP,” “DOWN,” “LEFT” and “RIGHT” in Netflix (or even Facebook?) Four commands, that’s all you need to add to the current system.

    Wow. I’m totally underwhelmed with this update. I’ve been waiting 5 months for Netfix Kinect support, and THIS is what you give to us? Why did you even bother with this?
