You can access in via the Theater mode, going under the Video section I believe. Depends on what skin you have maybe. I don't know if you can access Netflix via the standard display mode.

My understanding is that netflix will stop most 3rd party integrations so even the theater mode might not be available in the future.

That is true and pretty unfortunate. Guess I'll be cancelling my subscription in the future.

Edit: Though when I think about their implementation, it looks like they are just bringing up the Netflix UI via a browser and forwarding the JRiver controls to the UI. Would that really be impacted? I'm guessing the search functionality would be the biggest hit.

Netflix is also in the process of moving to HTML5 instead of Silverlight. At the very least MC might need Chromium enabled and updated.

AFAIK, Netflix doesn't work anymore due to Netflix closing the API to specific partners.

I just downloaded JRiver Media Center 20.  Can't figure out how to add/enable Netflix support.  Is it really true that support has been removed?  Has JRiver made any comment on this (other than what I saw in recent release notes)?  Is support expected to be added back in the future?  If not, is there a recommended "workaround"?
Thanks.

There are some good suggestions for workarounds in this thread: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=93428.0

Just to be clear, support from JRiver wasn't removed. Netflix removed their support. And JRiver has made comments about it and been in contact with them. They're being jerks IMO and not giving out their API to small players. very uncool.

Understood.  It is a shame that Netflix is taking the position that they are.  After just a few days playing with it, JRiver MC is so close to being a single interface to all my media, but for me no integrated Netflix and Pandora are real negatives.
