Netflix Fires 50 Support Specialists, Blames it on Silverlight

Netflix sure seems thrilled about the quality of Microsoft’s Silverlight. In fact it is so happy with Silverlight over Windows Media Player that it has fired 50 support specialists. The company has decided to go with Silverlight in their movie playing and streaming business while giving up Windows Media Player.

That’s a mighty move from Netflix. In the battle of the giants, it has chosen Silverlight over Adobe Flash.

A Netflix representative said:

Silverlight makes it easier to connect to watching on the PC and Mac. There isn’t the need for highly specialized technical folk.
