Default Fire TV Netflix

Its been a while so maybe I'm out of date, but has anybody tried the Nexflix app for the Fire TV on the Ouya?

I know previously the Netflix app was barely usable, but the Fire version seems better for a remote interface.

I am curious about this as well. Have been looking for a copy of the apk to try but no luck so far. Maybe someone on the forum has a FireTV and would be willing to supply a copy of the Netflix apk. I have seen that the OUYA controller works good with the FireTV so there this could be a good alternative to what versions we have to sideload now.

Edit: It will load but just sits on the Netflix loading screen with no data traffic.

DONATE TO ME
Decided I'd take a crack at this.
I copied the following from the FTV to the same locations on the OUYA (I also changed the build and version in build.prop):
/data/app/org.chromium.content_shell_apk-1.apk (chmod 644)
created directory /data/app-lib (chmod 711)
created directory /data/app-lib/org.chromium.content_shell_apk-1 (chmod 755)
/data/app-lib/org.chromium.content_shell_apk-1/libcontent_shell_content_view.so (chmod 755)
/system/app/WebCryptoTZService.apk (chmod 644)
/system/app/WebCryptoTZService.odex (chmod 644)
/system/lib/libwebcryptotz.so (chmod 644)
/system/app/AmazonApps_420005110.apk (chmod 644)
/system/lib/liblatency.so (chmod 644)

Still just hangs on the Netflix loading screen. Logcat says "W/ActivityManager( 324): Unable to start service Intent { act=com.amazon.tz.webcrypto }: not found". LOGCAT

Ideas?
Like my work? Did I help you? I like pizza, and keeping my wife happy. Donations are appreciated.

The app calls for a bunch of stuff that is not on the OUYA. At this point it won't work no matter what ROM you are running.
