New APIs in Android 4.3 opens up 1080p streaming from Netflix, perfect for the new Nexus 7
Netflix was mentioned at several points throughout todays Google event in San Francisco, one of which was during the Android 4.3 presentation. A seemingly small update to the app pushed out into the Google Play Store that now it seems has more weight behind it.
The new DRM APIs in Android 4.3 will allow Netflix to finally start pushing 1080p content to our Android devices. OK, so it's reliant on Android 4.3, but you have to start somewhere. And it means when you fire it up on that new Nexus 7 you're going to treat yourself to, you're going to get some pretty awesome looking video.
