You can read about it at Netflix's site here

It does involve a disc, which hasn't been explained fully. It sounds as though you might have to insert the disc every time you stream Netflix, which seems lame, inasmuch as it's a built-in feature of every other Netflix streaming platform.
As of the last dashboard update, the Xbox's Netflix player is my favorite. I watch DVDs, Blu-rays and downloaded video over my LAN with the PS3 and it's a lot quieter than my Xbox, so I'll probably use this if it works well. (I'm not sure why, but I rarely choose to use my TiVo for non-DVR'd video).
