Netflix New Innovations
There are lots of positive features of Netflix online movie services, but here are a few that are hot off the tech press. Netflix was recently released for TiVo users, so that means that if you have a TiVo box and subscribe to the TiVo HD, TiVo HD XL or TiVo Series3 DVR service, you can use the Netflix interface and download your movies that way. Also new to Netflix is the ability to use your Apple TV DVR to download the latest blockbusters.
Mac users also got a boost with other options. They can now use the “Watch Instantly” feature of Netflix by just turning on their Apple desktop, laptop, or Mac mini, and then use the Safari or Firefox 2+ browser to watch movies streamed from Netflix. The new smooth streaming of online movies to Mac users is made possible by Microsoft’s software called Silverlight.
