Talking about the BSD family of free operating systems.
Would have been great if you asked them, "Why does Netflix support streaming to desktop clients on BSD or Linux platforms"? To date all Netflix supports is the dying M$ Silverlight framework. That was the white elephant in the room ;-) BSD talk is a great show, I enjoy it immensely.
Netflix supports what sells and what gets them business. I use PCBSD and wish I could view Netflix on my system like I do Hallmark SpiritClips. Until we get more PCBSD users out there we can hardly ask Netflix to put the work in to support us. I am sure their content providers require/force them to stream securely in a way that protects the content from theft/copying.
