    I'm looking to buy an ATV soon and am confused by the research I've seen on whether or not NetFlix will work on ATV. If I download Boxee, will NetFlix then work? I want the ability to play all the saved moves on my IMac which is why I want the ATV, but I also want to stream NetFlix on my TV vs. watching on my 20" IMac. I guess I could buy the ATV and the new Samsung Blu-Ray player that incorporates NetFlix but it starts to get a little expensive. Thanks for the help!

    you can't

    Currently, there is no way to play netflix streams on an ATV. The ATV version of Boxee does not have Netflix, only the Mac OSX and Ubuntu versions have Netflix.

    Boxee continues to promise Netflix on the ATV, personally, I doubt we'll ever see it.

    Boxee supports netflix but not in the apple tv version...yet. It is coming just not out yet. I don't know of any other solutions for netflix on the ATV at the moment.
