    I have Netflix streaming videos on my Merge and this is how I did it.

    Go to http://www.google.com/gwt/x?source=r...m%2FXTEWL8CLCZ
    And download; com.netflix.mediaclient-1.apk


    After down loading open the apk with an app installer, if you don't have one go to the market and download it.

    Then it should run the setup and you enter your username and password and start streaming!

    Edit: to link to the updated apk with out device check.

    I think this will work on a lot of other phones as well.

    Is the Netflix app forcing you to "update"?

    The original "device check disabled" version works fine on my Merge, so I bypass updating this way:

    1. Turn on Airline mode.

    2. Start Netflix app.

    3. Hit Retry button a couple of times in the Netflix app

    4. Without exiting Netflix app, switch back and turn airline mode off.

    5. Switch back to Netflix app, hit Retry a couple more times until Netflix launches.

    Do you lose privledges if you update?
    Could it just be a regular update like they did with their website?
    Anyone have one of the 5 htc phones that made the cut for the real netflix app? If so did you have to update too?

    Edit: tried to update.... it wouldn't let me...
    The trick works but it pushed update then cancel when it wouldn't connect. Then airplane off... bravo works like a charm.... but had to do it every time I switched between movies.... thanks jdawg

    Damn it asked me to update after installing... is there anything special I need to do other than just installing the apk?

    Did you replace the old one when you installed? I would try to delete it and reinstall to see if it helps. Also both apks will still be on your phone so make sure you install Netflix-1.apk and not the old one.

    Cleared data
    Uninstalled app
    Reinstalled netflix-1.apk

    No good still wants me to update...
    Not a big deal for me just thought I would give feedback

    Maybe ill try rebooting the device and pulling battery in between un/reinstalling???

    I don't know what the difference would be. All I did was install the new apk over the old one and it worked for me. Is anyone else having this issue?

    So I figured it out..... maybe sad but true....

    I clicked update....
    Then it let me download the update...
    Then it reinstalled the new updated .apk
    And it works....
    Maybe netflix just works on the merge now?
    Although I could not find it in the market....

    I got it to login and see my q, recently viewed, search and all BUT when I touched to start streaming, it popped a message saying this app version is no longer supported or valid or something of the like, and had me update the app, which I did and now it won't login (closes it self after login screen).
    Sigh, SO CLOSE.

    Note: By the way all this on WiFi and on my.. Mesmerize!

    Go to [APP][Updated 6/21/11] Official Netflix - xda-developers
    And download; com.netflix.mediaclient-1.apk is Netflix 1.2.2 (Released 6/15/11)

    This is now the most up to date apk and should not ask you to up date any more. At Least till they up date the app again.

    try this new updated apk and see if it works. I do know that it doesn't work for all phones but it does work for the merge and some other phones. Maybe the updated apk will work for your Mesmerize.

    just installed it on my HTC merge and when I click on a movie it attempts to load then goes back to que list. Any thoughts?

    Sometimes it starts me over like that. I just click on the movie again and usually it loads. Maybe three tries but usually it loads for me on the first try. If it continues try to reinstall the apk.
