Streaming movies on your television through a gaming console is one of the more attractive features of online video game systems for the non-gaming population. While people can link their Netflix accounts to computers and cell phones, until Netflix streaming devices were made for televisions, watching streaming media was generally limited to a one- or two-person experience. With Xbox and other systems streaming to televisions, you can watch thousands of videos with your friends and family at the click of a button without ever getting off the sofa.
