My bad :S

I'm in Europe where, as far as I can tell, no proper on demand solution 
is available for linux. Thought Netflix would be just that solution in 
North America and that was what the mythflix-plugin provided.

If there's DRM involved there's probably no way it'll come to 
open-source, even though in this case I'd love to be proven wrong.

Hmmm, it seems there's such a thing like glowria.fr and lovefilm.com, 
but I don't like the hassle of receiving and returning DVDs. :S
