Question Netflix on Xbox 360?

Can you watch Netflix movies (if you have an account of course) on any of the Xbox 360's or is it only certain ones? IE: Elite, Pro, Arcade?

I know you can on the ones with harddrives. I'm not sure on the arcade, in that you have to download a NetFlix application to the Xbox to support streaming. I'm not sure how big the application is, or if it uses buffering that would require more space.

Almost any movie that you can watch online you can watch on the xbox you just have to download and set it up. Very easy.

Cool, I'm considering the Pro or Elite. But I could only find Netflix for the elite, good to know I can watch it on the Pro.

thanks

I have the 20gig pro model and it works great. I don't see why you would even need a harddrive except that it's on the "new xbox experience." Basically, you go to video marketplace, click where it says netflix, it'll tell you to go to netflix on your computer you'll go through a few pages, a code will pop up, you enter that code to sync your xbox up with netflix, and you're good to go.

Don't forget you have to have XBOX Live too. Works great though, I'm about to cancel my cable cause mostly crap on TV.

Do you have to have a phone line connection or does it do wireless?

Mine is wireless. Hardline would be better, because sometimes wireless signals fade in and out as I'm sure you know and it can cause it to stop for a second and rebuffer. It's not a big deal at all. Sometimes the picture quality might be blurry, too if you have a low signal.

Good to know, I'll have it hooked upstairs where my main computer is...so wireless is a must! My Wii runs off of it and is fine so hopefully this one will be the same
