Netflix on the MP and IMC

Subscribers to Netflix’s Unlimited DVD service are granted an unlimited number of hours for watching movies in the Netflix Watch Instantly library. Each Netflix user ID can watch 5 movies simultaneously. ReQuest’s IMC can browse the Netflix Watch Instantly queue that you manage from your account at http://www.netflix.com. The movies are listed in the same order that they are displayed in your Watch Instantly queue.

The MP and IMC do not manage your queue or allow you to select movies to add to your queue. Netflix Watch Instantly service is only available to Netflix subscribers in the United States only. The Netflix Watch Instantly service is provided as-is. ReQuest makes no guarantee on service availability, content, video quality, or discontinuation of the service by the provider. Any abuse of the service that results in Netflix suspending a subscriber account is the sole responsibility of the account holder. Use of the Netflix Watch Instantly service constitutes an agreement with the subscriber and Netflix, not ReQuest, to abide by the Netflix Terms of Service.
