Good netflix, BAD NETFLIX

This link is to an article explaining that Netflix is going to offer about 1,000 movies online to it's subscribers. I was very happy to see this since I was thinking of making the shift to Blockbuster. I read through the article and it explained that you can only watch 18 hours if you have the $18 plan AND you have to be running a windows computer. Now, I don't know if bootcamp/parallels work get around this, but it still stinks.

What do you want?

In reply to: Good netflix, BAD NETFLIX

Unlimited online movies? Heh, yeah right. I'm sure Parallels and Boot Camp will be fine, as with any other "Windows" program.

The hours don't bother me nearly as much as the no mac version (as of now)

guess i'm gonna have to install bootcamp again.

Don't know how many hours/month I'm interested in watching movies streamed, though. TV is a different story...

So the download from Netflix isn't obtrusive?
