Better Netflix search URL

Currently !netflix ABC results in http://www.netflix.com/search/ABC. This doesn't give very useful results. When you search for ABC from the Netflix homepage, you get http://dvd.netflix.com/Search?v1=ABC&ac_... and get much better results. Or more simply http://dvd.netflix.com/Search?v1=ABC also gives better results.

It would be nice if !netflix could be changed to use this newer search URL.

The former URL is accessible to everyone, whereas the latter only applies to Netflix members. Therefore, it is better to use the former. It would be possible to create a !netflixa or something to differentiate, but it's not high priority.
