netflix instant streaming.

My requirement was to fetch a list of Hindi movies. At this point Netflix website has no easy of searching for a foreign movie that is available for instant viewing. Unfortunately even the netflix API has no direct way of looking up movies for a particular genre. All you can do is search their catalog for titles.
If I had to build an app on top of netflix api I have to literally index all the movies and then filter genres (hindi, bollywood, india)/language (hindi) and further select only the ones that are available for streaming. Luckily there is already an app called instantwatch that does that for you.
