They finally released Netflix for android..but its only for the g2, nexus one and s, evo, and a couple other phones. I just sold my g2 so I'm a bit jealous. Is it possible somebody can hack the apk?

Here is the apk compliments of the EVO 4g forum.

The app installs and you can log in to your Netflix account, but you cannot play videos, it tells you your device is not supported. If possible we will need to remove the device check.

I read elsewhere on this forum it has to do with netflix only wanting it on the ARM processors. we may not ever see it on a tegra2 device which is a shame because id use that alot

I wonder if this is any different than the older version i have
I know streaming doesnt work but i wonder if any other changes were made

I tried the .apk on my G2x running stock 2.2. It immediately closes unfortunately.

This was already discussed in the G2x forum a few weeks ago because I posted the APK.... The app is only compatible with Qualcomm chipsets.

Has anyone tried on CM7? They use a different kernel so it may fool the app into working.

I do think it is funny though because originally they said Netflix wasn't coming to the Qualcomm sets because they didn't support DRM or something on a hardware level and looked forward to the Tegra 2 chipsets for their main chipset.

Now the Tegra 2 chipset is out they are all of a sudden saying "Oh we're going to support the Qualcomm chips".

In all honesty it is just them being picky and not allowing streaming. If they wanted to be simple they could just open up their website to allow streaming via Flash.
