So I've downloaded every version of netflix on XDA, and none work on my D2G running fission. Thoughts?

It only works on units with a specific CPU which we do not have.
It has on Chip DRM incorporated which is required to stream from Netflix.

So unless they come up with a software based DRM that they can use to replace what the CPU doesn't have it is doubtfull we will ever see a working NetFlix app!

You will probably have upgraded your phone by that time!

That's not good news. Did you get this info from Netflix?

Yet another reason why DRM sucks.

Netflix works on my stock D2G. When I rooted my D1 and overclocked it to 1.2 ghz Netflix worked great. Don't understand why people are having a hard time with their D2G?
