If there's one name synonomous with online video content, it's Netflix. Its global reach is ever expanding, and presently covers virtually all of North and South America and parts of Northern Europe. Part of the attraction is the sheer volume of on-demand movies and TV content, the relatively low monthly subscription fee and the sheer number of devices that have Netlix apps, including Android.

It's really more about the service than the app, but that isn't to say it's not a good app. Because it is. Netflix was one of the first supporters of the Google Chromecast, adding yet another way to get it on your TV. It's easy to browse and find new content and with support for profiles built in, you never need to worry about a family member interfering with your suggestions.

Netflix is free to download as part of your monthly subscription, and new customers get a chance to try it free for one month first. Can't say fairer than that. No one video service has everything just yet, but Netflix comes pretty close.

Unauthorized Netflix app now working on Android [update -- not any longer]

Maptec from XDA has a working copy of Netflix for Android, streaming video just fine on his HTC Evo 4G.  This is supposedly the same Netflix app from the LG Revolution system dump.  Like many, Maptec was using the apk for a queue manager, and it received an auto-update today and suddenly started...

LG Revolution system dump has Netflix

 Although the LG Revolution was announced quite a while ago now, there is still no sign of it being launched. No matter -- we all have the HTC Thunderbolt to hold us over but that doesn't mean the LG Revolution news has to stop. For those of you who like to dig through system dumps you'll find the...

Netflix for Android shows up on LG Revolution

While there has been no official announcement from anyone at Netflix, the Netflix for Android app is being showed off on the LG Revolution in this hands-on video from Unwired View.  Because of connection issues in the convention hall (a few thousand technophiles will do that) we don't get to see it...

Major Google TV update being pushed out, Logitech Revue included

Let's face it; Google TV owners have thus far had a bit of a rough ride out the gates. Big media hasn't been all too friendly as of late and many would say that Google TV was in desperate need of an update as soon as it was released. Google today, though, has taken care of some of that with a...

Logitech Revue about to get a much-needed update to its Netflix app

One of the biggest disappointments when we first fired up the Logitech Revue was the Netflix app. You can watch anything in your Instant Queue, but that's it. Nothing else. Sad panda. But it looks like there's another update in the works that brings a fully functional Netflix to Google TV. The new...

Netflix coming to select Android devices early next year

Easily in the top five questions we get from you guys -- and this is one we've been asking, too -- is "Where the hell is Netflix for Android?" It's been a fleeting rumor for months and months, and still we don't have it. But now we at least know why.Greg Peters of Netflix product development took...

From Facebook: Nextflix, Hulu top most-wanted Android apps

 Over at the official Android Central Facebook page, users have been listing the apps they most want to see come to Android. Hulu and Netflix are the two near-universal choices, with a smattering of games thrown in for good measure. We know Netflix is working on an app, but Hulu has been mum....

Netflix employee: 'Good things come to those who wait'

We still don't have Netflix on Android. And we probably won't tomorrow, either. But that doesn't mean the movie rental company isn't hard at work on an Android app. We've been pretty sure they've been spending their summer on it, and a Netflix employee is on Reddit this morning taking some...

Netflix on the hunt for an 'Android video playback expert'

The headline is pretty clear, Netflix has posted a job opening seeking an Android Video Playback Expert, which can only mean that it is looking to finally venture into the Android market. Netflix is nothing new in the world of smartphones. Heck, our friends over at WMExperts have been covering...
