Netflix brings 'Watch Instantly' to Macs
« on: October 27, 2008, 08:02:00 pm »
For those of us with Intel based Macs, we will all be getting at some access to "Watch Instantly, ironically through a Microsloth technology called Silverlight.
 "In a move that seemed like it would never, ever, ever happen, Netflix has finally managed to bring its streaming video technology (and decent library) to Macs everywhere, thanks to Microsoft's Flash-esque also-ran, Silverlight. It seems that the software will allow the rental house to safely DRM its content where ever it goes via Redmond's Play Ready, thus leaping the hurdle that has kept some 12,000 movies and TV shows off of non-PC systems. Netflix claims that the new implementation in Silverlight provides "breakthrough navigation for fast-forward and rewind," though fails to indicate exactly when this is all being rolled out (we assume immediately)."
