It's for Netflix users who want to traverse and explore Netflix's catalog of streaming titles more efficiently and painlessly. All the information and cross-links on this website are limited to Watch Instantly titles so you don't have to waste time sifting through a bunch of DVD-only titles to find the ones that you can start watching right away.
You can also play or queue these titles directly from this website.

Netflix built something called the Netflix API, which lets independent software developers use Netflix's database to build useful applications for Netflix users. This website uses the Netflix API to build its own, separate database of Netflix's streaming titles. This website is not owned or controlled by Netflix, but is the sort of useful innovation Netflix wants to encourage by making its API available.
instantwatcher.com uses the Google AJAX Search API to pull in relevant YouTube clips and trailers. It also uses The New York Times Movie Reviews API to associate NYT movie review content with Netflix instant streaming titles wherever possible. For example, you can easily discover which streaming Netflix titles are New York Times Critics' Picks.
Yes, but only at 1 second intervals and only between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Otherwise, you might eventually be denied access. If you want to use Instantwatcher data for commercial purposes, you're better off using the Netflix API directly and with your own Netflix Developer Account.
But Instantwatcher.com is glad to share data with academic research projects, and in fact does make CSV-formatted data available for this purpose. Contact dhchoi at gmail dot com with your inquiry.
