I understand Netflix is getting closer to enabling streaming video direct to smart phones, but it's not there yet (at least as of yesterday). So, keep checking. Can't wait, personally. Love it to my TV and computer (instant viewing) via wifi.
both ios and wp7 have dedicated official netflix apps that work great over wifi 3g they both look rather grainy so its great for viewing around the house or airport but not really while driving in the car. i really wonder what is taking so long for it to hit android.
An article awhile ago suggested that fragmentation was part of the problem with getting it to Android. The variety of devices made designing in security hard. Netflix has to maintain the confidence of the studios to keep getting new movies!
I suspect that if we see Netflix on Android it will be supplied by the phone company a bloat ware.
Really one of the few things that apple has on android. My wife has a ipod touch and the netflix looks good on wifi, I can tether from my android and it sometimes works (if I have a strong 3g connection).
For driving in the car? Yeesh... Please don't leave Jersey if you're driving around and watching videos.
Sorry that came out wrong i would never drive and watch movies trust me i have a class b cdl with ps and L endorsements i am in the transportation business i never watch movies text or talk on the phone while i drive. i was just referring to passengers in the car, or riding as a passenger.
It all seems fishy to me. A lot of the Android phones and Tablets have way more horsepower than iPhones/iPods/iPads, and the open OS should allow way more flexibility for the Netflix devs to implement any kind of DRM code they want.
It is to prevent you from making and distribute a verbatim digital copy. Typically the security is required by the copyright owners.
Well isn't pretty much everything on the internet anyways. People who want something illegally are going to get it, wouldn't the potential income from new people subscribing to netflix because they can stream Lost on their phone's going to outweigh the 0 newly created pirates.
