yes yes yes NO! netflix streaming movies

Filed under: — adrian @ 1:56 pm

I noticed today when I logged in to Netflix that they had a new option “watch now.” They have a whole lot of movies that you can stream and it’s included in my subscription.

It’s a win for them (server bandwidth << shipping costs + wear/ depreciation of DVDs) and a win for me because I don't have to wait... except they don't support mac. Keep trying, Netflix.

    Hello, I’m a Mac, made by Apple, the single largest purveyor of DRM-laden music in the world.

    Yea, I used to not care about the DRM-ness of iTunes. I liked it. I wanted to get some music for a iPhoto slideshow, so I go download it from iTunes, how convenient. Then, when trying to export the slide show (movie, DVD, iPhoto Slide show, etc), I get the message: “The music to this Slide show will only play on Authorized computers…” Yeesh. Big Brother, will you please ordane my friends computers so I can use my crappy fair-use soundtrack for some crappy drunk photos?

    Thank you.

    ~Still a mac fanboy, but I’ve realized I’m only a fan when my wishes are in line with what Apple Inc. feels are appropriate.

    iTunes will apparently be 50% DRM-free within a year.

  8. dolphio Says:

    So I can play the first half of Stairway, but not the last half?

  9. Colin Says:

    eMusic is 100% DRM-free today. Selection is not as good as iTunes, but at least you’re not supporting the RIAA.

    It seems Netflix will finally find its way on to the Nintendo Wii (currently the only console without the rental streaming service).
