Netflix API Review

The Netflix API allows anyone to build a custom application integrated with the Netflix movie and television streaming platform.

Netflix provides a RESTful and JavaScript API, and uses OAuth for authentication. The API provides access to users account data and the Netflix movie and TV catalog.

.NET, Ruby, Python, Java and Perl Libraries as well as some PHP samples are provided for accessing the API.
