Netflix app for Windows 8 released – a pleasure to use

Netflix just made their new Windows 8 touch optimized application available in the Windows App Store. I played with it for a few minutes and it is a pleasure to use – fast, fluid and also has captions!!! If you cannot see it right away, just open the store and search for it (move mouse on the right and click on the search symbol).

While the application is touch optimized, it works very well with a mouse. Now, if I would only have Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video, my HTPC running Windows 8 and the using Logitech keyboard from the now defunct Revue would be close to perfection. Check after the break to see more screenshots.
