Windows 7 RC and Netflix

So, I love Netflix.  It’s been the long answer we all have been waiting for to get away from the evil Blockbuster empire. It does kill of local movie retal places, but oh well, sometimes times change and new is actually better.  Anyway, so, onto the point.  Windows 7 RC and Media Player 12.  One big thing I love to use Netflix with is their view it now or watch instantly section of their site.  Quick movie right then and there.  I discovered tonight that you cannot do so innately from within Windows 7.  I found a bunch of crap that told me to install firefox, run ietabs, etc etc etc.  No reason to at all.  Just simply tell netflix you want to use silverlight to view movies from the link below and all is well.

Once enabled, you should have no issues watching movies instantly!  I thought I might as well blog this, since I do really enjoy the new Windows 7.  Hope this helps you all do the same!

Peace.
