    Yeah, it sucks that they decided to go for the Windows Media format, but they don't have that many movies with that service anyway.

    yeah, I can. I was trying to avoid it though. I've been doing pretty well with OSX, and like Machipster said they dont have TOO many movies on it(they do have some great ones though)....ill look into this later, thanks for the quick replies

    I have heard that they are switching over to using Silverlight which has OS X compatibility.

    yeah it sucks. It's gotta do with the drm I bet.


    anyways, watching netflix movies online is a reason why I am running VMwarefusion. And with Unity view, I don't have to leave my mac desktop :D
