"But for now, at least, the app will only be available on select Android phones. Those include the HTC Incredible with Android 2.2, HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2 and 2.3, the HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2, the HTC G2 with Android 2.2 and the Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3."
guess my evo with 2.3 is no good..... someone with one of the said 2.3 devices have the apk they would like to share?

I can confirm it doesn't work on Xoom. I sideloaded it, and it pops up a message This device is not supported. It lets me log in and then I try to play something again another message this device is not supported. :-(

come on Netflix- Tablet support is a must
What really gets me about the delay in getting it out to Android devices was Netflix' constant mantra about how they "needed a reliable DRM solution for Android'. Well I just downloaded it onto my EVO, which hasn't had an update since what- October?

IOW there's no new DRM code in the Froyo OS (unlike the Honeycomb 3.1 update, which has it), which means it comes via the app- and since we know the iPad has Netflix, there's no reason left why there can't be one for HC.

Like you said- come on, Netflix! What gives?!

I think it has alot to do with the movies google just released. Probably wanna give that awhile before allowing netflix in. Smart business is all.

I could put more weight behind this were it not for the fact that I've been able to watch Amazon Instant Movies since the day a Xoom-capable Flash was released.

Besides, Amazon's "all-you-can eat" pricing model for older releases isn't the same as Google's "new(er)-release, rent now" model.

I imagine it wouldn't be a bad idea for someone to post a link to the uploaded apk somewhere so that lazy people like me can sideload as soon as they get this news.

Maybe even edit the OP

    I got excited, but you should update the title to say "not for xoom--yet" since this is a xoom forum.
