Lenovo teases a new tablet, tells us to wait for tomorrow to see the rest

When Lenovo announced the IdeaPad Tablet K1 as the first (and only) Honeycomb tablet to run Netflix, well, you know that just wouldn't stand. Turns out the update that gave as slew of new phones access to streaming movies also indirectly opens it up for other Honeycomb tablets as well. We've got it running just fine on the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

This is the stock Netflix app, pulled from one phone and installed on the tablet. No hackery was involved -- we've never been crazy about people cracking open someone else's app in the first place. But this is pretty much fair game, and we're going to spend the rest of the afternoon watching Phineas and Ferb, or whatever else our preschool-age daughter has polluted our Netflix recommendations with.

mlpjunior says:

It does not work on the transformer.

Ironcladz says:

Did you install the new APK?

Ellingsoc says:

Yes cant find anyone with a transformer that has it working or the acer

moosc says:

after ue second updated post I pulled my apk and installed on my xoom and um zooming along with Batman

El Jefe says:

Fact is that the app has always worked for A LOT more devices than the app description has stated. Even back when the app was very first released, there was a version floating around within a few days that disabled the line of code that checks which device you are on to see if it is one that is supported.

For the life of me, I don't understand why Netflix isn't opening this up for *ALL* phones running *ALL* versions of Android. It seems like it would be good business sense to get your product out to everyone possible instead of limiting it for unknown reasons.

Check out the android market through the browser, and continue through the browser after searching "netflix"... They are showing the ASUS Transformer and Toshiba Thrive. Although still greyed out, I can tell you that they were not there a couple of hours ago. Maybe some honeycomb netflix tablet love is finally here!.

I took this video, see for yourself:

hbannister says:

Very cool on the Samsung 10.1

Mozes#AC says:

How in the world did you get it to install? It still says it's incompatible via Android Market :(

rub2008 says:

i backed up my new updated version from today, and titanium backup'd it. then just copied the .gz file and uncompressed it to see the apk then just installed it on my tab.

works like a charm!!!!!!!

Mozes#AC says:

Thanks rub2008. Got it working on GTab 10.1 as well :)

remixfa says:

I did it even easier. I have netflix on my phone already with the latest version so I just used my file manager to make a copy of the apk in my downloads folder (the apk is under /data/apps). Then I simply emailed the APK to myself. Then I downloaded it from my email on my tablet, installed and boom. 2 minutes of work and it works flawlessly.

LG G-Slate running HC 3.0 running netflix with no fuss or hiccups.

leever6000 says:

used this link for my 3.1 XOOM, works great, thx

It downloaded automaticly, and installed when I clicked on the completed download.

Thx for posting the link.

It also worked for my 2.3.3 Droid X, works great.

QK2BUCK says:

Thanks PGiovanni for to link. It works flawlessly on my 10.1.

cadence06 says:

Works great on my Galaxy Tab 10.1. Thanks!

BigTex says:

Works perfectly on my transformer. Thanks!

Where can I grab the apk? Or at least a guide for extracting it myself?

MowDownJoe says:

To extract an APK for yourself:
Install ASTRO File Manager.
Install Netflix.
Use ASTRO to "back up" Netflix. (It won't be a backup in the same sense as a backup made by Titanium Backup, but rather just the APK backed up to your SD card.)

Boom. You have the Netflix APK on your SD card. Sideload it onto your tablet from there.

rsa says:

Thank you very much for that information!

Thanks a lot! Works like a charm on my 10.1!

Perfect. Thanks for the quick steps. Works fine on my GTab with CyanogenMod7.

Small_law says:

Works fine on unrooted XOOM wifi with 3.2.

hamonclan says:

How did you get it on your XOOM..... I can not find the app


Mozes#AC says:

It still displays as incompatible with my GTab 10.1 in the Android Market :(


It was same for me with Xoom, get apk file in Xoom forum. Download and install! Then Enjoy!

Mozes#AC says:

Got it, thanks

corematter says:

Netflix works now on the samsung vibrant. Installed old versions, cleared cache and installed. Froyo not gingerbread

iceddown1975 says:

Worked perfectly! I went into astro on my evo and emailed the apk to myself. I then opened it up on my xoom then viola! Netflix on my xoom. I was going to cancel next month but now im staying.

Brent39 says:

Works great on my Viewsonic G-Tablet rooted running Vegan Ginger.

aweber1nj says:

Just did the same.

+1 for easy to install and working on VeganTab Gingerbread!


Someone posted apk in Xoom forum, I got it there and worked great on my Xoom! I even called my 12 year old to try it on her NC running CM7 and it worked great for her too! Great day!

lalfonsob says:

Downloaded Netflix using my Vibrant, copied the APK to my GalaxyTab 10.1 and it works great streaming movies!

proximo1911 says:

This is Great News! i have the updated 1.3.0 build 246 working on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 I hope this does not turn out to be the same as before where Netflix opens it for a while then they close down the services to non supported devices... but till then i will be streaming some Netflix on my ride home today....

frobie#AC says:

How? Doesnt work for me on my stock 3.1

Cliffs71 says:

Got it loaded on my Transformer and it opens, but when I select something from my instant queue, it gives me this error message:

"Sorry we could not reach the Netflix service. Please try again later. If the problem persists please visit the Netflix website (12001)."

Get through just fine on my EVO 4G, but the Transformers keeps giving me this message.
