Netflix Streaming To Add Tons of Miramax Films Soon

For many gamers, the console is the center of their entertainment world. Role-playing? Shooting? Rhythm gaming? Check, check, and check--all needs which can be met by the magical gaming box resting below the TV. But what about those gamers who use their systems for more passive entertainment? We would be remiss to forget those cuddling couples and fidelitous families who consider the Xbox a gateway to the endless movie well that is... Netflix!

netflix360.jpgIf you count yourself among the moviegoers who go mainly by couch, then you'll enjoy this bit of news: Miramax has just penned a deal to allow a virtual heap of new movies to launch into your living rooms via Netflix' streaming service, starting this Monday. If you're a frequent watcher, you may be delighted to know that some of the new stock will replace the old STARZ offerings, which were notably lacking in quality and Xbox Live compatibility.

Some general examples of flicks which might be hits at your next gathering include: Pulp Fiction, Silence of the Lambs, Clerks, Return of Pink Panther, and Black Hawk Down. Potential choices from the service's "Gay & Lesbian" category include the Christian Bale-starring Velvet Goldmine, as well as Better Than Chocolate and Paris is Burning, a documentary following a racial-minority drag community in 80s NYC.

Since films available for streaming do come and go, it's impossible to tell which of Miramax' best will appear or disappear in the coming weeks, but rest assured that there are more options available to film nuts than ever before!

Whenever I watch Netflix on my TV it's on my PS3, since...you know, needing Gold to do it on Xbox and all.
But I watch Netflix on my laptop more than I do anything else, really.

And yet the Netflix iPhone app still hides the LGBT category, as though I'm a child who needs parenting.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
