    Is there any way to watch instant movies from my Netflix's account on my Pro? Is there a program I can download?

    use bootcamp. you could also check and see if it's supported by parallels or fusion, but bootcamp will definitely work.

    Thanks for the tip. However, I want to say away from using bootcamp or parallels.

    I'm sure you have already researched, but netflix uses DRM (digital rights management) to ensure that the movies that stream to your computer are not hacked and pirated. OS X doesn't support DRM which means your ONLY option is to use BootCamp or Parallels. BOTH options support netflix as i use parallels myself for this.

    Netflix announced a few months ago that they do plan to support OS X for instant viewing. If you don't want to wait, you're going to need windows. OR, one of these...

    No you can't. What's wrong with waiting 2 days for a movie... :p

    Well actually, you can probably use wine and install Windows Media Player and Internet Explorer.

    You will have to compile it yourself.
