It's an opt-in, and once you opt-in, you need to use Silverlight on all your machines you use for "Watch Instantly."

Opt-in for the new Netflix movie player

Hi, Brent here with an update on our new player for the Mac and PC. We're past the first phase of our beta already, so I'd like to give you a chance to join in. But before doing so you need to consider the following:
  • There may be bugs. We are logging all errors, but if you run into problems you can help out by posting details here in the blog comments.
  • Not all movies are available to watch with Silverlight. You may notice errors or lower than normal quality when watching certain titles.
  • Our new player works on PCs and Intel-based Macs.
  • Windows users should be aware that if you opt in, you will need to use Silverlight on all the machines you use to watch instantly.

Once you get up and running check out some of our newest content. We recently added a lot more movies, as well as recent episodes of many TV shows including Heroes, CSI and NCIS. You’ll find all these movies & TV episodes under the “Watch Instantly” tab of the website.

So here’s the opt-in link:
