Netflix customers have had the option to watch selected videos on a PC without waiting for a DVD to show up in the mail since earlier this year
. But up until recently there were three major restrictions on the service:
- It only works with Windows.
- You could only watch a limited number of hours of programming per month.
- The selection was on the small and obscure side.
While the service is still Windows-only, several users have reported that Netflix is addressing the other two issues
. Netflix is sending out emails letting customers know that there are no longer monthly restrictions on how many shows they can watch. The email also states that Netflix now has over 6,000 movies and TV episodes available, which is about twice the number the service seems to have had this summer
