That's according to an article by Video Business.
In addition to the high-def titles, XBox 360 owners will be able to access more than 12,000 standard-definition titles from Netflix. The service will be free to existing Netflix subscribers.
Netflix, which delivers DVDs and Blu-ray discs via the mail, has partnered with several companies to offer its service directly to the home over high speed Internet lines. However, the XBox will be the first to offer Netflix's titles in high-def.
Other Netflix partnerships, such as a set-top from LG Electronics, only provides standard-def movies and shows. But Roku, the $99 set-top that that can deliver Netflix movies streamed from the Internet to your TV screen, says it will offer high-def programs by year's end.
Video Business reports that high-def titles available on the XBox 360 will include the NBC drama Heroes.
Update: The Los Angeles Times reports that Sony has pulled its movies from Netflix's service via the XBox due to competitive conflicts with the company's PlayStation 3 video game console.
