Access to Netflix in Windows Media Center

If you have a Netflix membership, you can watch movies in Windows Media Center. The Netflix option should be in your Windows 7 Media Center, but if it isn't, you can go to Tasks -> Settings -> General -> Automatic Download Options to manually install it. Next, select the Netflix tile in Windows Media Center and sign in. You can then scroll through streaming movies in your Instant queue and watch them in WMC. You also have access to your regular DVD queue, and can search for movies. You need Silverlight to use this feature.
