Re: netflix's instant watch

Doesn't instant viewing only work on PCs using Internet Explorer?

Useless for me. How about throwing us mac users a bone?

Unless viewed at a small resolution, regular DVD is rather grainy most of the time. (Artifact and image loss obscure a great deal of detail.) Do you watch the videos on full screen, or only in a small window?
Full screen. They look as good as any of my DVDs do.

Sadly not yet. It has to do with Netflix's use of Microsoft DRM and Windows Media Player.

I love Instant Watch. Not only do I get a good dose of older Doctor Who, but it's also how I got into Dexter! When it breaks, though... oi, don't even get me started.

Re: netflix's instant watch

I've had great success with the instant viewing, I have my computer hooked up to my plasma tv in the living room and I really enjoy the quality. Although I do agree there are not a lot of choices for most movies I'm interested in seeing. But I did recently watch the original Knight Rider's 2-hr pilot and an episode of the A-Team!

I love Instant Watch.

When it was first launched there wasn't much content on there, but now there's TONS of great stuff.

I watch Netflix movies more through IW than I do physical disks, now. And the recent change to unlimited viewing is great.

I really wish they didn't use Microsoft's DRM so that you could watch from Macs or from Linux. But overall, it's great.

Just watched on instant watch, recommended to everyone:

The Man from Earth (2007)
The Nazis: A warning from History (fascinating documentary series on the rise of Nazism in post WWI germany, through the fall of Hitler)

^ The Man from Earth is definitely on my "to watch" list for Instant Watch.
