    Trouble with Netflix and Hulu online

    I upgraded to windows 8.1 about a year ago, and I just now started to have trouble with Netfix online. I never bother with the apps, because they never worked. So I was content going online for the services. But now it seem I have ran into some trouble playing steaming movie. The message I get when using Firefox is as posted below.

    Try Chrome. You need Silverlight installed to watch in FireFox. Also you have to do it from the Desktop mode, not the Metro mode if you are going to watch movies inside the browser.

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center

    I have Opera & sometimes I get an oops message.
    I suspect Silverlight gets stuck or something.
    I don't worry about it.
    I try to keep Silverlight updated.

    With Chrome you no longer need Silverlight installed.

Sup guys. Was just wondering what you guys use to stream movies and shows? I have netflix, was wondering if getting Hulu too is worth it, or just the same lineup and availability of shows? Would be interested to hear from anyone who has both. ;)
