Netflix Streaming Finally Arrives On Macs
Netflix has finally solved the DRM issues associated with streaming their movies to Mac computers. In layman terms that means all Intel based Macs can now stream Netflix 12,000+ movies and TV shows. Sorry, Power PCs aren’t compatible. In the end, it looks like they employed Microsoft’s Silverlight technology to manage the digital rights. I wonder what took so long?
Although deployment is to begin immediately, it hasn’t. I just checked Netflix’s site and I’m still getting the ‘Our apologies — instant watching is currently not supported for Macintosh’.
