I posted the other day that the watch it now feature was going to fail. However after Tom described it as a free bonus to existing netflix users I have to eat my words. It may very well still have all the issues that streaming can have, but they way Netflix is doing it is marketing brilliance and the right way to move forward.
Last night my wife signed up and warned me that the next 20 movies are mostly chick flicks. I may get to try this out a lot sooner than I ever thought I would.
Tom, I didn't have the Watchnow feature on my netflix account until I went to the Your Account section of the site and clicked on the Watch it now icon (it's not there anymore and I don't remember the exact wording). I didn't get to use it last night b/c I watched too much real tv. I'm planning on installing it tonight on my desktop. Does anyone know whether you can download it on several computeres? It won't matter to me until I can get my Macbook on netflix.
