Been streaming Netflix to OS 10.5.8 with Silverlight on Firefox and Safari for quite some time now. So this article is way off, it sounds like Mac users never had this and are getting it for the first time or something.

Now perhaps for Snow Leopard users yes, as it's a new OS and Microsoft has to make a new version of Silverlight for it. Perhaps some clarification is in order?

Anyway Netflix (or the owners of the content) only allows some videos to be streamed this way, not many neither. So your back to either getting a Roku or DVD's in the mails.

Now what is interesting is the PS3 will be allowing Netflix streaming in a few months, and since it's a HDMI/HDCP compliant device, that means the content is protected from casual copying, unlike the Mac. So all of Netflix's content should be available for streaming on the PS3, just like it is on the Xbox.

Oh yea, no extra charge for streaming. It really saves everyone a lot of money.

Take care all.

Me thinks MacTripper is trippin. This post is exactly one year and one day old. So yes you're right, it has been a while. Laughing
