An upgrade to watch instantly on your PC – and Mac!

Hi, Brent here with some exciting news - today we started testing a new player for watching instantly. Based on Microsoft Silverlight, the new player works on PCs and Intel-based Macs and includes some nice new features such as faster startup and adaptive stream switching. We’re testing it with a small percentage of new Netflix members so that we can conduct a thorough analysis before rolling it out broadly. Rollout to all Mac users will happen as soon as we're done with the testing, then we'll roll out to all users by the end of the year. I’ll let you know the moment that happens.
