Watch Movies Online at Netflix

In the past few months, Netflix has introduced a new feature that allows "Instant Viewing" of over "3000 full length movies and TV Shows." If you already subscribe, you may have not realized that this was available to you. It took me a while to notice that it was even there, up until about a month or two ago. I've been able to watch a few movies like Zoolander, and The Italian Job.

Now, you won't find EVERY movie there, but it seems as though Netflix is adding them weekly. The way it works is as follows: If you are on the $18/month plan, you get 18 hours of online viewing time. If you are on the $30/month plan, you receive 30 hours of online viewing.

It's pretty neat. My only gripe is that we have to use Microsoft's Internet Explorer to use it. Firefox doesn't work with it because Netflix uses Microsoft's Media Player as the back-end. If you already subscribe to Netflix, check it out. If not, why not try Netflix for a month or two and see what this new feature is all about.
