Netflix Rolls Out Android App for Select HTC Devices and Samsung Nexus S
Remember that leaked Netflix app from the LG Revolution system dump? If you can remember, the main function (being able to watch content) was not working. None of that matters now, because Netflix has dropped the official app into the Android Market. The catch is that it only works on select HTC devices and the Samsung Nexus S, but, all of the features work properly.
The current devices supported by the app are:
• HTC Incredible with Android 2.2
• HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3
• HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2
• HTC G2 with Android 2.2
• Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3
I can confirm that the app is indeed working on my G2. There are reports that some users running Cyanogenmod 7 are experiencing playback problems. Hopefully these issues will be resolved soon. Regardless of limited device compatibility, it is relieving to see that there is finally official Netflix support for Android. Hopefully they will broaden the range of devices soon (Galaxy S devices maybe?). Only time will tell.
