and Netflix underlings
tiptoe around the issue of the movie-rental company's streaming service for other game consoles -- currently "exclusive
" to Xbox 360 -- Netflix CEO Reed Hastings tells Reuters
he wants the feature on every console. The executive notes that "currently [Netflix's] Xbox deal is exclusive and [Netflix hasn't] characterized it more than that," leaving the door at least slightly ajar for other consoles and media devices to enter into Netflix
streaming deals of their own.
That's the big
question: For how long is the exclusivity agreement between Netflix and Microsoft
, and is it renewable? Answering that question -- believe us, we've tried
-- would tell us when to expect a flood of Netflix-streaming systems.
