Netflix on the Droid X

If you've been wondering when you'll see an official version of the Netflix app for your beloved Droid X, today is your lucky day.  You'll need to have updated to Gingerbread, but since it's now all official-like there's no more hanky panky involved to get it up and running.  Just grab it from the Android Market, sign in and start streaming movies on that big screen.  You can find the download link after the break.

i agree, but why in this day and age are we waiting on platform specific releases? Has the android become the PC of of the 90's?

Hey Neflix, How about fixing the app for the Evo 4G GB update? hmm? I honestly don't understand whats taking so long. Many other major developers that had their apps broken by the update have since released a fix. Why are you stalling?

Oh, that's nice. New release for a phone model. How about we fix the broken app for the EVO that was already working but now doesn't!!! Freakin' tempted to root my phone......

Aw Come on , Netflix please Fix Broken app on HTC Evo 4g with 2.3.3 GB, before adding other phones, and how long till will it take to work with HTC Evo 3D when it comes out the 24th, Isn't the Evo one of the top selling Android phones

I was really just wanting this app in the hopes I could manage my queue from a "native" Netflix app rather than granting access to my account to a third-party app.

But, noooo, if you have the el cheapo "1 DVD out at-a-time (2 a month)" plan which doesn't include streaming (which I do), then you can't use the app.

It doesn't give you an error message, it just doesn't let you log in. (Returns you to the log in screen with your attempted credentials removed.)

Unless they just added the ability to manage your DVD queue within the app, you can't do it anyway. The app is just for streaming.

You don't have to be on Gingerbread for it to work. I am still on 2.2.1 Froyo & the official app works for me.

Anyone know why Netflix is taking their sweet time by enabling this for phones one device at a time? Just seems like nonsense to me.

I am about to cancel my Netflix all together
1. No support on Evo and Thunderbolt but yet you give it to the LG Revolution WTF???
2. Movies that are streamed through my Wii you can find on Hulu & they are all outdated...there is only so many times I can watch "Maid in Manhattan" and "Scary Movie I" ~~~ seriously...
3. If I want to watch a movie by the time it arrives via snail mail (DVD) I have lost interest.
I am sure I will find something else to complain about Netflix for $11 a month
