Official Windows app from the store that allows you to watch all of the movies and series available in your region from your Netflix account.

Netflix for Windows is an alternative way to access your Netflix account offering an interesting way to interact using a touch screen.

An alternative to viewing Netflix movies in a browser

The layout of Netflix for Windows is rather different from the web site or other ways you may use the online video streaming service. For one, it doesn't seem to be as fast as the web site and counts as a drawback.

Upon launching the "Metro" app, you are greeted with recently watches TV shows and movies. Moving along, you are given a ton of different suggestions based on your online profile, mainly sorted by how popular certain movies, documentaries, television shows and others are with other users.

Basic access to Netflix features

Watching a movie with Netflix for Windows does not provide many additional options and the app will automatically select the bitrate (quality) it determines your Internet connection to be able to handle. You may also select from available audio languages and subtitles from the media bar when activated by moving your mouse or touching the screen.

The search function here isn't that good, perhaps because the application itself is rather sluggish. When done waiting for search results to show you, you can select the show to watch but nothing more.

In closing

Overall, the touch interface of Netflix on a system running the "Start Screen" isn't that intuitive but watching movies and searching is possible as well as being able to select from a small list of playback options.
