Nelson shows off Netflix working with Xbox Experience

There’s a video after the break, seemingly shot at E3, of Major Nelson showing Netflix working with the Xbox 360 UI revamp, Xbox Experience.

It looks pretty neat, truth be told, with users able to start watching their Netflix movies virtually instantly – why wasn’t this trumpeted in the conference? – and invite Friends to view films as they play.

Great if you’re American, obviously, but there’s no news on anything like this even being planned for European launch.

Watch it anyway. Netflix will be available through the new 360 dashboard this autumn.
