    It's my impression that AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) runs HTML apps with a subset of HTML5 features and the Webkit rendering engine (also Flash, Flex and Ajax); I thought that the AIR version of the Netflix player running on Premiere is a version of the HTML5/Webkit app.

    I don't know about that, but on the Roamio it launches an embeded version of Opera and then runs the true HTML5 version of the app. It does have the Kids section, like other HTML5 versions of Netflix like the PS3 and Yahoo! Apps TVs, but for some reason it does not have the Profiles yet. Perhaps they intentionally disabled them for some reason? I know that some people with Samsung TVs were saying the profiles interfered with the DIAL functionality. Since TiVo was touting that as a major feature maybe the requested Netflix turn them off so as not to interfere with DIAL?

    The only Netflix platforms I have which don't have profiles other than TiVo Premiere are (surprisingly) the Win8 app and my Panasonic DMP-BDT110 (at least the last time I tried it, which was weeks back; the DMP-BDT220 got profiles on the day they were announced, along with PS3 and my Sony BDP-S390). I don't think that the Android Netflix app on my tablet has profiles either, but I never watch Netflix on it or any other tiny portable device screen (Nexus 7 running Android 4.3).
