Netflix has long allowed its PC users to stream their online selection via Windows and soon the Xbox 360. The same has not held true for the Mac as we thought Netflix would eternally neglect the ability. Now you can finally watch the streaming video on your Mac, but that comes with an ironic catch. Netflix has decided to stream via Microsoft’s competitor to flash, Silverlight. Silverlight is a very capable platform and was used by NBC during the Bejing Olympics. Since then, NBC has dumped Silverlight in favor of its traditional flavor of Flash.
The truth remains that beggars can’t be choosers and now we have the option to watch the "Netflix" on our Macs. They have over 12,000 titles available to watch instantly and if you just want to watch online you can subscribe for 1 DVD by mail and unlimited views online for $8.99 per month.
