Netflix now has RSS feeds

On my way to answer Tamera’s call for movie suggestions, I remembered that Netflix has integrated RSS into their site. I took a look and, sure enough, you can get your rental queue and current rentals delivered via RSS now. So instead of just copying and pasting it, I whipped up a little bit of PHP to pull the feeds and display them on the web.

Yeah, I’d be interested in getting the code for that. I don’t have a netflix membership yet, but at the very least I’d like to check it out under the hood and figure out how it works.

Ok, here you go, all pretty and commented: netflix.class.php

There’s not really much to see though. You can use the RSS from my account to play around with it, since you don’t have your own:

Queue:
http://rss.netflix.com/QueueRSS?id=P1001004468493842104858145145133385

Current/Recent rentals:
http://rss.netflix.com/TrackingRSS?id=P1001004468493842104858145145133385
