Netflix mum on Xbox Live rumors


Netflix refused to comment Monday on persistent speculation it would soon announce a deal with Microsoft to offer downloadable feature films via Xbox Live.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings joined the Microsoft board of directors a year ago, and bloggers recently began posting surveys sent to Netflix subscribers asking if they'd be interested in watching movies and TV shows on their Xbox 360 consoles.

"Netflix intends to be on many devices that get the Internet to the TV," A Netflix spokesman said Monday.
