Netflix on the Wii

If there is something of a frustration it’s the DRM on Netflix watch instantly which bars legally and technically the ability to play on Free Desktops like Ubuntu. Even if you had moonlight installed, the Mono development community can’t or doesn’t want to reverse engineer the play for sure DRM.

Matt Lee once complained at me that I had a Wii games console, but as it turns out it might be a solution for those who want to watch instantly on Netflix since they’ve just started sending out Wii disks which allow you to watch it on your TV. Even better than watching it on your computer.

OK so it’s not free software, open formats or anything progressive. But at least there is a solution which might relieve some of the Ubuntu converts of the lack of the Netflix feature.
