A couple of nice updates on the streaming media front on the Xbox: first, you'll soon be able to add movies to your Netflix queue with no laptop required. Second, they're renaming the video store the Zune store and bringing it 1080p streaming.

Why they renamed the video store to the Zune store is anybody's guess, but the fact that it brings with it 1080p Instant On streaming is great. Now full-HD video will start playing immediately when you buy it/download it.

As for the Netflix news, this has been a long time coming. No longer will you have to go to your computer to pick the movies you want to watch. Now you'll finally be able to search through the entire catalog on the Xbox itself. Not too shabby!
