Do you think Apple may have made a pact with Netflix in retaliation to Microsoft bringing direct Netflix streaming to its xbox 360?

You have to download the Netflix player at www.netflix.com/silverlightoptin before it will work. About half of the items I selected gave me an error message. For those that worked, the speed and quality are a bit better than okay -- a couple buffering hangups using my Sprint usb portable wireless and MacBook Pro 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2 GB memory running OS 10.5.5 / Leopard.

I just tried it and it still doesn't work.
Same old message about only working on a windows machine.
Please, when you post an article, make sure it's true first.

I'm getting really sick of developers just ignoring those of us with PowerPCs. I can watch DVDs, cable TV, and other streaming - but can't do NetFlix. (Or run any neat new games. In fact, games for Macs period are pretty rare.) Have plenty of horsepower ... just no respect.

In any case, it sounds like NetFlix's beta for the Intels is pretty slow too?
