Netflix 'Watch Instantly' finally available for Mac users Netflix has said that its large streaming "Watch Instantly" service is now finally available for Mac users, a feature many subscribers have been hoping for for some time.
The statement is from the official Netflix blog which also noted the previously posted Starz content deal. That deal added another 2500 movies and TV episodes to the services' library.

The giant rental company already has a catalog of over 12,000 movies and TV shows available through its streaming service but has been making deals at a rapid clip as of late. Netflix has over 100,000 titles available on DVD however so the gap is still huge between the content formats.

At least Mac users have another option now however for their video downloads.

This article's misleading. Mac streaming won't be available until the end of the year.

yeah, I just spent 15 minutes trying to figure out what this article really was talking about.

As of now, NETFLIX does NOT support mac or anything non-M$.

And, for all of you Mac users (of which I am one) we’ve been busy working getting a solution that will allow you to watch instantly on your Mac. So hang in there - we’ll have something for you by the end of the year.

So they're still working on it.
