Introducing Cinema Theater: The ultimate third-party Netflix and YouTube desktop client. Cinema Theater allows you to view Videos without the need for a web browser in a HTML 5 compliant video player -- no Flash or Silverlight required. Simply open the app, login, and you're good to go. As well as viewing videos without a web browser, Cinema Theater provides a unified and integrated experience: Controls seamlessly fade in and out, Control Video right from the Menubar, and even closing the Window will send Video right to the Menubar so you can enjoy Netflix Videos straight from your Menubar!

Cinema Theater lets you Float the Video above all other Windows (so you'll never miss a moment), and you can set the Transparency to give an experience far superior to a Web browser. Cinema Theater can also remember the last point you stopped watching, so as you soon as you open the application the video will continue right where you left off. With all these features, and offering a sleek interface and modern foundation, Cinema Theater fits like a glove for macOS and offers not just the best video viewing experience for macOS, but on any platform!

This is not an app

Appears as though it’s a Chrome Frame with no address bar & a custom theme, that only goes to Netflix. I wasted money for something that I already had and am very unimpressed that you would claim you wrote an app when you only customized someone else app. Pretty lame.

Finally! A worthy Netflix app for Mac OS

As an IT person I jump between Windows and Mac on a regular basis. The Netflix app for Windows 10 is awesome and I have been disappointed that a native app had not been made for Mac…until now. This app rocks, was easy to setup and I look forward to seeing it develop more in the coming releases.

Great app

Toyed with this app for a few hours logging on and off and tinkering with several shows and the search prompt. Works very well.
