Ever since last Summer's E3 announcement of the Microsoft and Netflix partnership, we knew that having the ability to stream Netflix content via the Xbox 360 was going to be a big hit. So, with that, we're not surprised to hear today's announcement that 1 million Netflix subscribers have downloaded and activated the Xbox 360 streaming application. And according to Microsoft, those 1 million subscribers have watched over 1.5 billion minutes of TV and movies since the program's launch in November. That's a lot of "let's just relax and be lazy tonight" minutes.
Also, now that we know streaming Netflix content over the 360 is at least somewhat popular, would it be too needy of us to ask for even more video content? We'd really like that.
