The Major has word that the next time you start up Netflix on your Xbox 360, you’ll be prompted to accept and update introducing Kinect support for Netflix.

The update allows for “controller-free navigation of thousands of movies and TV show, allowing you to use just the sound of your voice or wave of your hand to control your favorite Netflix content.”

Users will be able to select movies and TV shows recommended by Netflix, and play, pause, fast forward and rewind using gesture or voice.

Kinect support for Netflix on Xbox Live features an exclusive recommendation channel that is controller-free and uses “a smart engine to suggest movies or TV shows based on your viewing habits,” and instant queue.

Kotaku spent some time with the update, and were none to pleased with it.
