    Netflix Speaks on Sony Movies Disappearing from XBox 360 Service

    A week ago,"An Evening With Kevin Smith 2? through the Netflix streaming service on my Xbox 360 but didn't finish. Now, I can't watch the rest.

    Joystiq [Register or Login to view links] this evening that Netflix stopped Xbox 360 users from streaming movies distributed by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    This restriction only applies to Xbox 360 users. PC, Mac and other Netflix-enabled on-demand devices can still stream Sony Pictures Entertainment films, and is not a glitch.

    "In the case of Xbox 360, a few hundred titles are temporarily unavailable to be streamed via the Xbox game console," Netflix VP of corporate communications Steve Swasey told MTV Multiplayer in an e-mailed statement tonight.

    "Those titles are still available to be watched on subscribers' computers and on TVs via other partner devices, and we hope they'll be licensed for Xbox 360 shortly."

    When asked if the license just coincidentally expired as Microsoft was adding Netflix support or Sony Pictures Entertainment specifically requested Xbox 360 streaming to be disabled, Swasey wouldn't say.

    "As watching instantly becomes a more prominent part of the Netflix service, our goal is to have all of our streaming content licensed for all of our partner devices," he said.

    "We're doing well in this area, but it will take some time before we fully achieve that goal. Today, titles regularly come in and out of license and there is a natural ebb and flow to what we have on license at any given point in time."

    For now, however, Sony Pictures Entertainment films available for streaming through Netflix - including "Superbad," "We Own The Night" and others - will remain blocked on Xbox 360, until Sony says otherwise. More PlayStation 3 News...
