      I guess http://odata.netflix.com/Catalog/ is not a public service. VSExpress fails to add a reference to it. I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 RC for Windows 8 + Win8 Release Preview.

      EDIT: VS11+Win8 Consumer Preview includes the service reference *successfully* for C# console application, but not for Metro style app.

      The error message is:

      There was an error downloading 'http://odata.netflix.com/Catalog/_vti_bin/ListData.svc/$metadata'.
      The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.
      Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'http://odata.netflix.com/Catalog'.
      etc...

      @aljodAv: http://aka.ms/w8odata is what you need for RTM. Don't waste your time on RP anymore. And, by the way, the Netflix catalog is totally public. Try just hitting it with a browser and you will see. Anyway, get the RTM bits to use Odata now.

      Unfortunately, I have to wait till October 26, because I'm not a subscriber; thanks for the link too (it'll have to wait too).

      By the way, as I haven't seen much Windows Store Apps examples in C#/XAML (only javascript/HTML5), would you mind writing some examples (in C#/XAML) in your blog like this one, about flyouts, settings flyouts, share contracts (source & target) using standard and custom formats, app to app picking, and any others you find useful ?

      Thanks in advance.
