I read elsewhere that Sony Pictures Movies are ok. It's only Colombia movies that are blocked.... So the conspiracy theorists fail in this case....

"As it turns out, it seems like this is simply a matter of licensing. Given that Sony BMG music is available through the Zune Marketplace and other Sony Pictures Entertainment movies are still available for streaming through Netflix to the 360, this might not be the proverbial middle finger that some assume it is."

Thank god for someone with some common sense.  This is plain trash being spread by someone with an overactive imagination.  If Sony wanted to pull its movies from the 360, wouldn't they pull ALL their studios, to actually have a major impact??? This is much more likely an oversight by Netflix, forgot to renew some licensing with Columbia for 360, and are working right now to correct the issue. 

I can't believe this gained any credibility.  I think people put too much into the "console wars".

WoW I just noticed that Sony have also taken down their music vids too.. no more Beyonce, Britany Spears or even Michael Jackson music vids!!


or is it because of the NXE update.. >_>

What's the quality of the movies guys ? And how much is a movie ?


it is free for xbox live gold members, if they have a netflix subscription as well. thats what i heard, but i am european so no netflix deal for me. makes me sad

There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

This is complete and utter Crap.

Read the article at Joystiq properly namely the last sentence which is a link.

Sony Pictures films are available on 360 Netflix. It's only Columbia Pictures at present which arent. They are a subsidary of Sony Pictures.

This has nothing to do with Sony.


dude its business. its not personal. I'd do the same.

Now microsoft has to pay licensing for movies such as:

the patriot, black hawk down, spider man series, terminator series, da vinci code, Bond series, most adam sandler movies, superbad, most will smith movies.
