Default Netflix app on Android updated to work on 24 models including Galaxy S, Droid 3

Netflix app on Android updated to work on 24 models including Galaxy S, Droid 3



Quote:
The number of Android devices officially compatible with the Netflix streaming app has more than doubled in v2.3, growing from 9 to 24. Last night the description was updated with a new list of devices but the actual updated APK only started pushing this afternoon, bringing Netflix not only to the Lenovo tablet announced last night but also to the Droid 3, HTC Thunderbolt, Motorola Atrix, several Galaxy S phones including the Epic 4G and Fascinate and more. Fragmentation is clearly still an issue for DRM'd apps like this and Hulu Plus, but at least now there's a growing number of recent superphones supported instead of sitting on the sidelines. We've got the updated list of devices after the break, hit the source link to download the app from the Android Market.

Just downloaded and installed it on my Samsung Vibrant (Galaxy S) and it works ok. Got a few buffering problems and my phone is using wifi right now so I seriously doubt i could watch a movie well just using the 3G connection.

Edit: Ok and now working again, better than it was before. I guess the problem was with Netflix earlier.
