myNetflix plugin to watchnow on Media Center

Netflix introduced the ability to watch videos online. This is a cumbersome process, especially for those who have grown used to using Media Center remote control and Windows Media Center. Everything in the Windows Media Center is pretty well organized and accessable through the Windows Media Center remote. However, the Netflix watchnow feature requires the user to close or minimize Media Center, use a keyboard, type in username and password, and so on.

MyNetflix is long overdue and would have appreciated Netflix for developing this plugin, however, leave it to the user community to fill the gap.

MyNetflix is a plugin that was created by Anthony Park to add this missing functionality to the aging Microsoft Media Center Edition 2005 and Microsoft Windows Vista (Home Premium or Ultimate) operating platforms. With MyNetflix, the Netflix watchnow features and other Netflix features are now available in the Media Center interface with the use of the remote control. The MyNetflix interface is quite professional, easy to navigate, and offers more features than can be expected.
