Netflix streaming service for Macs goes beta Netflix has announced the public beta of its streaming movie player for Mac computers, marking the first time Mac users can use the company's extensive "Watch Instantly" library.
Users can now opt-in to try out the player as long they have Microsoft's Silverlight animation plug-in.

Mac users will have access to over 12,000 titles and the company says they will continue to add more content on a daily basis. The program will become available outside of the beta stage by Christmas.

There is some DRM in the beta however which will limit the number of authorized devices to six, and each device must have Silverlight installed.
