Thanks to the Moonlight crew, Android devices will soon be able to run Silverlight!

Silverlight is a must-have for some users for websites such as Netflix and Sky Go (formally known as Sky Player)!

Here is a video from a few months back, demonstrating their progress so far:

Anyone hear any more on this? I've been searching my ass off and so far what I'm seeing is that there is a way to develop with silverlight for android (with mono for android) however, there doesn't seem to be any way to take a silverlight application and convert/wrap it to an android compatible format (nor is there a silverlight plugin of any sort that is compatible with android). I also read that Koush at one point was playing with moonlight/mono to get it working for android, but that was very long ago. The most "recent" news on it that I found was from April of this month. I also read a comment that the mono developers were laid off, could this be why there hasn't been anything since April?

I too am waiting for Silverlight to be devekoped for my new tablet - Packard Bell Liberty. It won't play live TV or stream video content, which is what it was designed for. It works on the Android 3.1 platform. I've messaged Microsoft and am still awaiting a reply.

It wont work for the sky go website as obviously sky uses the DRM part of silverlight and MS won't allow the moonlight team to see that part of silverlight.

looks like silverlight haves no room in microsofts future strategy:
