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 working. Magical.
We were told that Netflix would be coming to select Android devices based on hardware, so I'm as surprised by this one as anyone else. Remember if you try this one out that it's completely unauthorized, and you're probably breaking at least one licensing agreement with a company that has your name and credit card number. If you're not deterred, hit the source link and give it a try. [XDA Developers] Thanks everyone who sent this in!
Update: Now you see it, now you don't -- streaming video that is. Whatever wizardry that went on to make this one work has been undone, and we're back to waiting on Netflix again.
