I find windows 8 netflix way better than the browser one. Browser never seems to go to 1080 and playback stutters often. Not used it on my xbox because the TV has 4k netflix which wins over anything console based.

TeaLeaf: how do you get my list on the windows 8 one?

On mine it just shows as the second "block" of tiles.  So on the left I see "Continue watching" then "My list" followed by "Top Picks" and so on. 

I find the windows 8 app really good on HTPC, and even though it requires a mouse\keyboard it has pretty good WAF. Also I find it much snappier than netflix on xbox 360 and TV, and yeah I find performance smoother than browser netflix.

ive found the performance significantly better on the browser since they upgraded the UI which in itself is much snappier and you dont have to click on more info etc.

not against the win 8 version, it just seems a bit dumbed down, perhaps thats reflected in its reviews. its somewhere between my sony app and the browser version.

ill give it some more time though. is UHD 4k?

TeaLeaf: is the xbox netflix as good as netflix browser or is it limited like windows 8?

its really a toss up now between this and nvidia tv/shield

Netflix works great, the functionality is very quick with good functionality.

On windows 8.1 i only have continue watching, not "My watchlist". Not sure why I dont have it. I dont like that they dont pop out when you hover them with more info either.

Ill youtube the xbox one to see what thats like.
