Kinect Control Comes to Netflix on the Xbox 360

Control options are a little limited, but it's a start.

Kinect owners across the country can now use their hands to control Netflix thanks to the latest update from Microsoft. By using hand or voice commands, you're able to browse through your library.

Don't put down that controller yet. If you actually want to play a movie, you're still required to enter that command from an Xbox 360 controller.

The folks at Joystiq gave Microsoft a call for some clarification on this and it turns out that while you can play "recommended films" through a special Kinect dashboard, anything in your normal queue is a no go.
