I guess I’m technologically inept because I had no idea that you could watch movies on the Xbox 360, until my kids, who apparently know everything, filled me in. But you can watch DVDs and Blu-Rays on the Xbox 360! You can even stream movies and TV shows from Netflix! With an Xbox LIVE membership, you can instantly stream your favorite TV shows, movies, and sports from ESPN. Netflix, Crackle, Amazon Instant Video, Epix and many more. Another cool feature is that you can start watching a movie on your TV and finish watching it on say, your iPad.
With Xbox SmartGlass, multiple devices can interact with each other, enhancing your viewing experience. From the Xbox website, “Your phone or tablet transforms into the ideal second screen companion to your TV as it automatically serves up extended experiences of your favorite TV shows, movies, music, games and sports. Interactive companion guides, behind-the scenes commentary, and real-time game strategy are just a taste of what you can unlock with Xbox SmartGlass.” That is SO Back to the Future, isn’t it?
So, this year we’re watching our favorite Christmas movies with our Xbox 360. Here are my top ten favorite Christmas movies.
