    Need a favor from you guys. I found Netflix through the Market on my Captivate, an unsupported device. Unless I missed something, this isn't supposed to happen.

    So, if you have some time, can you search for Netflix on the Market, and post if you can see it, along with your phone? Maybe I'm just special, but I'm curious as to how far this stretches.

    I would take a guess and say that most people will see the "install" button under the app but as soon as you try to 'install" it, the market looks for a compatible device and if your device is incompatible, then it will not let you install. I tried this last night after I read about the "device check" was removed within the app.

    If Netflix is using the market right, it shouldn't even show up on unsupported devices. It did install on mine though.

    Netflix does not show up for me, Sprint Hero. I was able to load it with the build hack but wasn't able to play.

    If you can get the latest apk it might work (and you won't need the build hack). I bet the issue is the resolution, however.

    yeah, I started to suspect the resolution. It loads the video but doesn't play and errors out.
