Silverlight & Netflix

July 23, 2007 at 11:36 pm Leave a comment

Microsoft’s Silverlight is a relatively new application. It is part of the .Net framework and Microsoft says it is a “cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of .NET based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web.”

In a Mix ’07 demo, Netflix demonstrated a model they created in less then 3 weeks. This model features seamless movement between movies, and interaction on both PC and Macs. You can chat, share movies, switch between movies, chapters and  preview other movies in the same category regardless what platform you are on. Netflix also claims they are working on HD video streaming that is just as fast as regular streaming.

Is Silver light going to be the next big thing in internet technology? Do you think it will stick?
