Update: It appears that the “Watch Instantly” feature will be available to everyone by the end of the year as they roll out the feature to all users.
I’m pleased to announce the the long wait is over for Mac users who want to watch movies instantly on their computer. Netflix has finally launched the “Watch Instantly” feature for Mac users. Intel based Macs everywhere to are now able to stream thousands of movies from Netflix instantly. Although I was starting to seriously doubt if this would ever happen I was surprised to see the press release in my inbox when I woke up.
Today is off to a great start, I know one thing for sure, my productivity is about to go down the tube now that I have 12,000 more movies and TV shows to watch.
From the press release:
“Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), the world’s largest online movie rental service, today announced it has begun the deployment of Microsoft Silverlight to enhance the instant watching component of the Netflix service and to allow subscribers for the first time to watch movies and TV episodes instantly on their Intel-based Apple Macintosh computers. The deployment, which will initially touch a small percentage of new Netflix subscribers, is the first step in an anticipated roll-out of the new platform to all Netflix subscribers by the end of the year.”
