The voice commands in the new Netflix app for XBox 360 are awesome! Now instead of searching for the controller, waiting for it to turn on, and pressing A, I can just say "Xbox, next episode!" to watch the next episode of a show!

The menu navigation / browsing is still easier with a controller, though. When you're looking at a list, it only shows the title / description for the first item on the page, you're limited to just the the cover art for the rest of the page. Though, I guess it might be possible to use the kinect pointer to view the others, I didn't try that. Was just using the voice commands last night.

Edit: Just tried waving at the tv, and yeah you can point at the other titles on the page to see the title / description.
