Netflix on Xbox

So i finally got an xbox 360 as im a pc gamer, but it was free so cant pass it up. Ive got a Samsung 3d Bluray player which has built-in Netflix also. However, upon setting up my Xbox, i installed Netflix to check out the quality compared to my Bluray player. I discovered that i must PAY $$ to microsoft to use my PAID Netflix account, am i understanding this correctly? I would think there would be some type of issue with MicroSoft trying to charge us to use something we pay for through the provider. I really hope im missing something here.

You need to have an XBOX Live Gold Membership in order to be able to use Netflix on the XBOX 360. It's how it is, there's no way around it and it's how it's setup. There's no issue regarding this, it's either you want the bundled services that come with XBOX Live Gold or you don't. If you'd like you can use different devices to connect to Netflix if you do not feel like paying for a Gold Membership. More information about the different subscriptions available for the XBOX 360 > http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/joinlive

Yea ill NEVER pay anyone to use a subscription that i pay another company for. Theres absolutely NOTHING that the gold membership offers that i have interest in. Ill stream from my bluray player for free, even my damn cell phone is free, yet microsoft thinks we'd pay them to use it? what makes them think they are special? Ahh well atleast i can use my own media sharing stuff from my pc to stream movies cause without breaking walls and windows in my house i cant set up the xbox to connect to my pc with media center.

st0n3: It looks like your account is already showing as Gold, so there is nothing more you need to pay at this point than you already are. I highly suggest checking it out on the console when you get the chance. I prefer it for the UI and options to any other set-top device.
