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’.
