A Quick Look at Boxee Box Netflix

Feb 14 2011

Since it's Valentines Day I have to make this quick so just the highlights.

  • Boxee's Netflix uses the new HTML5 Netflix application
  • HD is available
  • Multi-channel audio tracks are listed (Dolby Digital Plus!), but don't play - see the screenshot gallery for the error.
  • Subtitles are listed and work
  • DVD titles are listed in the results (but I wish they weren't)

Let me know if you have any questions, I'll try to answer them as best I can.

As someone who just purchased the AppleTV 2 with the intentions of putting XBMC on it also, I have to say Apple's Netflix application is awesome.  Exceptional and contemporary (black themed) design like its Front Row interface with the "Flying Covers" to add 3D depth.  Also, the ability to cross search movies for actors/actresses in other films is really a plus too - not sure if that is in other Netflix systems.
