Netflix's new online movie service won't work with Macs

Netflix recently introduced a new online movie viewing service dubbed "Watch Now," that will allow subscribers to watch a limited amount of available titles over the Internet.

An Associated Press article carried by the New York Times reports:

"The allotted viewing time will be tied to how much customers already pay for their DVD rentals. Under Netflix's most popular $17.99 monthly package, subscribers will receive 18 hours of Internet viewing time."

However, the new service apparently won't be compatible with systems running Mac OS X.

As shown in the screenshot to the right, system requirements for the service are listed as: "Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or Windows Vista. Internet Explorer version 6 or higher."

There is currently no word on whether or not Netflix plans to eventually offer the service for Macs.
