No-can-do for me...

Doesn't work for me either

Kraki

me neither. It also says that it will requite Internet Explorer 6 or higher. Would be nice if they'd let you use firefox. I can't stand IE

Neither method works. The help page version gives a splash page with this image:

Nope, the 2nd method still doesn't work for me :(

I didn't work for me, but I wonder if they are going to hide this feature for non-Windows users. I'm using OS X and Ubuntu, so I may never get this feature. :(

I'm using Windows (XP), and it didn't work in Firefox 2 or IE 7.

They must have turned it off before this got posted. I tried the method listed in the comments of another post yesterday and it worked for me, although I did have to switch to IE to actually use it.

Wonder if there's a method to the rollout, or just random. I've had an account since 2002, I wish I'd get it soon.

I posted this technique last week. A few of my friends tried it and it worked for them. I guess they were lucky.

BINGO!
Goto the "Your Account" page.

Click Link link labeled "How can I watch movies on my PC?"

Click on the "Start Now" that's magnified on the page, the cursor should change when you hover over it.

Worked for 3 different accounts this AM!

I don't know if I was part of the first wave or not.

I logged in this morning and didn't have the watch now feature.

I followed the directions and instantly had the watch now tab.

YAY!

Just worked for me...

Why doesnt Netflix just make instant watching work with FireFox running on Linux? What is the issue? Just do it.
