    It's not a channel, you HAVE to use the disk.

    Unless you put it on a USB loader or something, obviously.

    Dont know how this is going to work. I believe the accounts and discs are linked when they ship. So that might be a problem.

    I can't think of ANY cd or dvd media that can be linked to a single serial # from a burn, Wii or otherwise.

    When you log on your Netflix web account, it gives you a code to type into your Wii while your PC web browser is active. Links up that way. Quick, painless. There's currently no roundabout way to crack into Netflix via this loader.

    there will definitely be a way to go around this since playing AC2 using a server was necessary but now as u can see ppl are playing it will not requiring ubisoft servers but their own computer as a small server...
    gba was said that it was impossible for slot1 but we did see it...and also ps3
    conclusion: anything can be got around but what samred said is very sensible and it may take time

    You are not going to find a way to stream movies from the Netflix servers without using the Netflix servers.

    maybe if the dol file for the main program is hacked it can be used to point to a different server.

    Maybe you aren't clear on the concept, but the whole point is that Netflix has movies you can watch. Yes, there are other sources of movies, but if you want Netflix's movies you will have to get them from Netflix.

    And get what from that server ? Pr0n or something ?
    You really don't understand how Netflix works do you ?
    Netflix is a streaming service. The content is streamed from their servers to unique IP addresses.
    When you subscribe, you activate your account trough your computer with it's unique IP address.
    In addition, you can add 4 more streaming devices that are linked to your account.
    In order to do so, you have to activate such streaming device ( in this case the Wii ) from your PC with it's unique IP address which is linked to your name and subscription.
    Are you still dreaming of hacking that ? Are you claiming that everything is possible ?
    This would be pretty much like hacking your phone line so you can make phone calls for free. Or hacking your cable modem and get Internet for free. Or hacking your satellite receiver to view pay per View content for free. Do you think that's a possibility ?
    The content on the Wii disc is merely a player, there is nothing magical in it that could be " hacked ", unless you are a monster hacker and could hack Netflix servers yourself ( If you are that good you should hack the Pentagon Computers as well ). Quit fantasizing on it already.

    Yes that's correct. $8.99 per month for DVDs and streaming and $2 more for Blue-ray discs. If you think about it it's less than paying for a premium channel on cable and you get a lot more.
