    IE 11 on Windows 8.1 preview supports HTML5 Netflix streaming right now

    We've previously discussed our plans to use HTML5 video with the proposed "Premium Video Extensions" in any browser which implements them. These extensions are the future of premium video on the web, since they allow playback of premium video directly in the browser without the need to install plugins.

    Today, we're excited to announce that we've been working closely with Microsoft to implement these extensions in Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1. If you install the Windows 8.1 Preview from Microsoft, you can visit Netflix.com today in Internet Explorer 11 and watch your favorite movies and TV shows using HTML5!
