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.

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.

No, and neither should HBO GO or any other media app.

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.

What's with the odd lack of polls on topic with simple yes or no questions?

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.
