Microsoft adds Netflix to Windows Media Center, finally

Netflix connections are on Xbox, TiVo and all sorts of Web-connected consumer electronics nowadays, so it’s a little anticlimactic that the video rental service is being integrated into Microsoft’s Windows Media Center.

Unless you’re a Netflix customer using Windows Media Center, of course. In that case you’ll love the slick integration and search features. Netflix appears as a “tile” in the TV and movies section of Media Center.

Microsoft is announcing the addition Wednesday. It works only on Windows Vista and not XP Media Center Edition.

Tiles for additional video rental services could be added in the future but Microsoft isn’t previewing those plans yet, according to Ben Reed of Microsoft’s Connected TV business group.
