Netflix for Xbox 360 receives update; sports new design and separate user profiles

Netflix has recently updated their app for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. The fresh update brought a redesigned interface along with the ability to select individual profiles for viewing.

The application’s new design puts the interface on the same visual queue board as the apps for Windows 8 and Windows RT devices. The background is now darker and foregoes the company’s favorite color, red.

In addition, users can easily switch between separate profiles. No longer must you worry about your Mother’s episodes of "Sex in the City" being recommended to you. Separate profiles allow for different users to keep their content separated and recommendations truer.

New Netflix profiles also allow parents to set “Netflix for Children” as the default option for their child’s tile. If you have not yet set up profiles for individual members of your family, you can do so by visiting and going to your account settings.
