I am having the same issue on two PC's; rolling back updates does not seem to work either.

So which representative is correct? I spoke to one and she stated that it won't work cause they are not supporting it. Now I see someone was told that they were working on it?

Actually, had you bothered to do a little searching, you would have discovered that Windows 7 MCE users all have this problem. Next time, if you don't have anything productive to say, don't post.

Found this on another forum. Looks like it was Netflix's fault after all. Glad they final admitted it and are working to correct:

"A change in our website code broke our player API for partners like WMC. Our team is working on an emergency fix. Sorry for the inconvenience everybody.

Mike from Netflix"

windows 7 64 bit

i too, have recently lost the ability to stream video from netflix through windows media center. and so far, no one seems to have a solution. then why, if netflix won't support it anymore, have the option for netflix in the media center? what's next? gonna stop streaming through xbox, wii, ps3 and internet ready blu-ray players and everything? if that's the case... i WILL cancel and just use red box for movies in the future!!!!
