No NetFlix on legacy Apple TV

A reader emailed Steve Jobs about using Netflix on the first-generation Apple TV - and the answer probably won't surprise you.

A reader emailed Steve Jobs a question about using Netflix on the first generation Apple TV:


The new AppleTV sounds great, but I have three existing AppleTV's at home already and the major advantage of the new one for me would be NetFlix which could easily be added as an app in an upgrade.  Will that happen?

To which Jobs replied:

Sorry, no. Sent from my iPhone

I've looked at the headers of the reply email and am confident that it originated from his-Steveness.

Is anyone really surprised? Upset?
