A technical glitch briefly exposed what could be the new Netflix download service. Tom writes:
I just noticed in my account info page, there is a section for "Netflix Player" with a link to "Register Player". If I follow the link, there is a form to "Add a Netflix Player", and it asks for "Registration ID" and "Name your box". I haven't noticed this before. I wonder if this is a new service that they are rolling out. Could this be something to do with movies-on-demand? Or do they have a netflix-branded movie player of some kind? Interesting....
Here's the screen he captured:
Ian noticed a new genre: "I can't seem to find any information about it, but Netflix now has a "Downloadable" genre (with subgenres of Foreign and Drama)."
Looks like we got an early look and possibly a name for the new Netflix movie download service. I'm wondering if the "Netflix Player" is a TiVo or possibly a new device.
Anyone else see something interesting on the Netflix site recently?
