I just want to know how many people don't have any trouble with Silverlight.

I don't have any trouble with Silverlight, but I also don't Netflix.

I use my iPad more than a PC but since I have a PC hooked up to my TV yes, I'll watch it on there every once in a while.

I've had an issue or two with the Media Center netflix plugin in the past, but overall I can't say it's given me any annoying troubles. I can't recall ever having any problems with browser based Netflix.

I've used it like, two or three times on my computer. Not because of any issues with Silverlight, but more of convenience.

It's much easier/more appealing to use my tablet/phone+Chromecast to play Netflix streams on my TV instead.

So the fact that I choose not to pay to use Netflix means I hate Silverlight now? Great poll. You should write for POTD - you'd fit right in.

99% of the time on my 360 or PS3, whichever I have hooked up at the time. I've used it on both my laptop and desktop without issue though. Never used a phone/tablet app.

It's annoying having to use pipelight to get it to work, but yes.

Nope, I like a site that is 4 letters, ends with .tv, and rhymes with "hyphy".

I've never had a problems with it, is there something I'm missing? Seems odd to have this poll without it causing issues for a lot of people or something.
