    Did you even read the entire article? They are working on supporting more phones, and expect to have a much larger base of phones running the apps in the coming months. This is one of those situations where the fragmentation that anti-Android fanatics tend to rant about actually rears it's ugly head.
  4. Really?

    The Desire is a Nexus One with an HTC logo, and it's only one of the most successful android phones (I'd bet it is #2 two just behind the Galaxy S series).

    Way to go :x.

    Happy I've had the netflix app on my windows phone since I got it. Eat that android folk
  10. Release it for Canada you bastards.
  11. All of you android bashers are newbs. Within hours of the Netflix release a simple hack has enabled Netflix on the majority of Android devices. Try to do that with your closed source corporate OS. Bill and Steve have assimilated you.

    Oh happy day! This is the best news I've heard in minutes, Now you can have Netflix on your smart phone. I guess the only thing now is to drag my 40 inch TV to the trash. I won't be needing it anymore you know? Now that I can watch "Avatar" on a cell phone!

    It's kind of comical actually, the people here that will argue all night about which cell phone has a better app for streaming feature films on Netflix, are the first people that would tell me to "get a life".
