We all know that it is required, but SHOULD Netflix require Xbox live gold? Discuss.
I would love to hear from Xbox fans on this as well. --- "World's best heel and you don't even know it"

For the exact same reason I don't pay them anything to access it on PC, even though I'm running Windows.

it makes no sense that a paywall is behind another paywall. --- Must read Xbone board topics: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691088-xbox-one/66754864 http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691088-xbox-one/66274628

It probably depends on what it cost microsoft to do maintain/upgrade it.
Honestly i prefer netflix menus on the PS3,
But the uproar is stupid, people get angry when a system does then other then game (see the TV anger) but then get angry because the lack of free support for similar items. --- WWE Fantasy Name: Blings 4 Life Season 4 and 6 Gamefaqs League Champion Former PWB Trivia '07 Champ! -Crowned by DarkRuneblade

I pay for Gold, so the paywall argument has absolutely no effect on me, seeing as I pay for multiplayer, not for entertainment apps.
But no, they should not be behind a paywall like Gold. I understand the need to promote or give incentive to use the service, but marketing an entertainment box that cannot even provide basic entertainment needs like Netflix without a subscription, that even smart TV's can provide for free is not really a smart move. --- GT: DeadLock25
