Netflix strikes back, online rentals

How long has this been rumored, and now it’s finally here. Nexflix is offering 1,000 downloadable movies soon. The Watch Now feature will only be available to a few customers at this time, and it will be rolled out to all customers over the next six months There is no cost, other then your monthly membership, which determines the amount of online viewing you have.

Say you have the standard plan, $17.99, you get 18 hours (1 hour per each dollar) of online viewing. Watch a movie and cancel within the first 5 minutes for no penalty.

Of course, this is only available for PC’s and not transferable to mobile devices. They only have 1,000 titles, but hope to have over 5,000 by the end of the year.

I am a Blockbuster subscriber, and until something like this is mac compatible, I don’t really see a huge desire to switch.
