If it does we should contact Netflix And see if our addin can get in on the "exclusive" list... If they kill that off in WMC I'll cancel my subscription as we consume most of our Netflix through WMC.

Yeah, same here probably, I can do the XBox but 99% on WMC. Wonder if their customer support has an email address, I found live chat and phone on their web site. I'd send a mail registering my interest in keeping WMC support up.

If anyone gets a contact point at netflix, plz post here so that others can respond to keep WMC access. Getting rid of that would seriously tick off the miss'es :(

Its december and Netflix is still working WMC... I was holding my breath and bought a roku just in case haha. I actually do love the Roku though and use it with Media browser 3 to stream live tv in another room. Works perfectly even over wifi.

Why would them stopping the public API affect the Microsoft implementation of the app in WMC? This affects smaller 3rd party apps that are made to access Netflix content.
