Does NOT NEED SILVERLIGHT - Instead of using silverlight, you can instead just use the HTML5 option in Netflix. If you want netflix on your mac, this is the way to do it. You are all just complaining needlessly and need to accept that this is how you do it and Netflix doesnt provide support for mac and this is a workaround. It is functional and you need to simply accept that.

Crappy App - We have several Mac products- an iPad, iPods- two regular iPods and an iPod Touch and a Mac desktop. I have never had any issues with the Netflix apps for the iPad or iPod devices, but this app for the Mac desktop we have is the pits. Half the time it won't open, and when it does, it won't load all the movies or the associated covers that go with each movie, so trying to find something to watch is virtually impossible. I wish I had never spent the money to download this app. Just wish we could get our money back…

UNfriendly for Netflix - I’m not able to use this app at all. It opened to a Netflix log in screen but when I entered my stepfather’s details as I have a subaccount under him, it wanted me to register a new account that apparently wasn’t free. It sent me to a screen that wanted me to create a password and contained a caption underneath about starting a free month. If this is genuine it’s senseless. One shouldn’t have to register a paid account with an app that required the use of an existing paid account with another service.

Great app - Awesome app,makes using netflix on mac a lot easier, the only issue is that sometimes it opens on a black screen and i have to reopen a few times, but this might have to do with an unstable internet conection.

No way to Quit the app! - You can "Turn Netflix Off" but the application icon just grays out. Only way to quit is through Activity Monitor. Thanks! ... Ken
