Netflix on Roku adds search and instant queue options

updated 08:50 pm EDT, Wed May 5, 2010

Entire UI revamped and improved

Roku tonight introduced a revamped interface for Netflix on its Internet set-top boxes. The service has been improved with new search options, allowing users to find specific content in the Instant Streaming Library. The revamped interface can also be used to add movies and TV shows to an Instant Queue that can be watched at a later time.

The overall layout now provides much more content on a single screen, filling the display with cover art from movies or TV shows. Navigating between each title presents a short synopsis and star rating for various listings. The updated Netflix interface will be available soon for subscribers, although the company has yet to provide a specific date.
