    • Yeah. No way I'd switch to BBI or even entertain the notion of using them along with my NFLX subscription. I can wait if need be for a movie, it's really not that important to me.

      But that browser issue really surprises me. I'm a developer myself, and always have to support multiple browsers. Limiting users to just Internet Explorer is just dumb.

      I tested Safari, Firefox, and Google Chrome, none of which work. BBI just displays the same message every time. At the very least they could have tailored the message to be dependent on my browser. If I use Safari, it shouldn't tell me to install the Firefox plugin for Internet Explorer. In this case I'm not using Firefox.

      I guess BBI is just not interested in all those MAC users out there. I can probably assume very strongly that no MAC user is going to want to install a Microsoft product on their computer. What would be the reason for owning a MAC in that case then?!?

      Dumb, dumb, dumb ... BBI
