I don't own an XBox, but I doubt it will work.
Your best option is with an AppleTV or Roku box. Either will connect to your wireless network and stream from your iMac. I prefer the AppleTV as I can stream from iTunes, iPhoto, or even stream my iMac onto my TV. AppleTV is $99 if I remember correctly.

Actually, the recall ended 04-12-2013.
However, some Apple stores or Aurhorized Apple repair centers may still do the recall free repair/replacement work, if your iMac serial number was still part of the recall.
You need to input your iMac's serial number here to see if your iMac qualified for the recall.
You would need to call an Apple Store or authorized service center to find out if they will still honor the program recall replacement hard drive.

The replacement hard drive will only cost you a couple of hundred dollars to replace versus a new Mac.
If everything else is working fine, this is a no-brainier to have replaced.
It's Apple's fault that you didn't know how to use their computers? Really?
So, you just let a $2600 Mac computer just set there unused?
When you first purchased this, they had free classes you could've signed up and went to for first time Apple users that Apple personnel can show you how Macs work and help you learn to operate.
Plus, this support site can offer places online here that could've also helped you learn more about your Mac and how to use it, too!

Some movie sites use a web browser plugin called Silverlight. This has been developed by Microsoft as a replacement for Adobe Flash Player.
Netflix is one of the online streaming movie companies that use this plugin.
I can help you learn more about your iMac by giving you these links to follow.
You basically came to this thread without posting any of your iMac's specs. So, I do not know what version of OS X you are running.
