As the world sleeps Netflix might just be making streaming movies a very viable reality.

In a story from Home Media Magazine, it seems that "through Aug. 22" subscribers have watched streamed movies and TV episodes 10 million times through Netflix on their PCs - doubling the number of views since July."

Last January Netflix spent $40 million dollars to get this streaming service up and running. In its first 6 months of availability, the service "topped 5 million views."
