If you’ve got an Xbox 360 and use Netflix, the video streaming company has updated the app with a few under the hood tweaks. First of all, you can now fast-forward and rewind much easier and quicker with the latest update; even go to the next episode in a flash. Also, if you’re in Canada, UK, Ireland or Latin America, Netflix has improved the sharing abilities for you. Here’s the full changelog:
- Skip Forward/Skip Back functions during play allow you to move through movies quickly and move between TV episodes easily
- Better color contrast, making colors more vivid and black more pure.
- If you’re a member in Canada, Latin America, the UK or Ireland, we have also created more opportunities to share TV shows and movies in the connected world and for you to discover more great stuff to watch through your friends. Members that have connected with their Facebook friends on Netflix can now see what their friends have watched and rated on Netflix. In addition, we have made it easier to decide what you want to share with your Facebook friends when enjoying Netflix on your Xbox
- Single sign on with cloud profile makes it easier to enjoy Netflix on another Xbox 360, wherever you are. For example when visiting a friend’s house you can use their Xbox 360 with Netflix after signing on with your Xbox LIVE credentials
Remember to take advantage of this update on your Xbox 360, you must be a an XBox Live Gold member. The app will auto-update for you. Personally, I prefer the app on my PS3 but whatever works best for you.
