Interesting news from Netflix that they are going to be using Silverlight to stream movies to Macs to support their “watch instantly” service. They had left the Mac and Linux guys in the lurch for a while but its just fantastic that the Mac guys (and perhaps Linux with Moonlight?) will get the service. I suspect this is an extension of the XBox 360 deal. I wonder if this means that the streaming on the XBox is Silverlight 2 based?

Is this cool or not?
