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.

New Netflix app runs just fine on Honeycomb tablets

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

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:

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!!!!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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

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....

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.

Confirmed, this is now working (YES STREAMING) on my Xoom wifi AND my myTouch 3g slide. looking good....

Comfirmed! Working on my stock 3.2 Xoom. :)

Just in time for Netflix to double their rates and my dropping streaming :(

Full HDMI out on My Motorola Xoom!!! perfect for those times when you are in a hotel with one of those new HD TVS , and now or to the big TV at home

I have a rooted 10.1 , its not working. Only says the page times out. It works on my co-worker's 10.1 just fine.
