Netflix Kills Off Its Public API, Takes A Few Applications Down With It

Are you a developer? Do you have a brilliant idea for the next Netflix-powered app? Too bad! Netflix’s public API is now dead. If you’ve previously built something that tapped Netflix for its data, it’s probably dead now too. The move isn’t surprising – just disappointing. Netflix first locked down its API two years ago, barring any newcomers from gaining access. As of this weekend, however, even those who’ve had access to the API for years have been given the boot. Only a very, very short list of apps will live on as partners, presumably being given access to a private API. InstantWatcher, CanIStreamIt?, Flixster, Fanhattan, Yidio, and a few other lucky ones carry one.
