Back in Feburary I caught wind of a possibility that XBox might be partnering with Netflix to allow streaming movies to the XBox. Here's an update: They are. It was officially announced at E3 a couple of days ago, along with some other pretty cool XBox enhancements. The official announcement to the world is on XBox.com.
I'm seriously stoked about this. I've complained before how expensive XBox movie rentals were, this totally alleviates it. This would really be great if it were available now, instead of this fall, since I'm stuck in a studio apartment 500 miles from my family with nothing much to do. As usual, the timing kindof sucks, but whatever. Welcome to the future of movie rentals.
