Netflix for Android

Netflix has offered an Android app for a few months, but initially only a few specific devices were supported. Over time Netflix has added support for more and more phones and tablets, and as of today Netflix now officially supports all devices running Google Android 2.2 Froyo and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Of course, what I mean by all devices is all devices in the US or Canada. Those are the countries where Netflix is currently available.

Netflix subscribers can use the app to stream TV shows and movies over WiFi or 3G internet connections. You can also manage your Watch Instantly or DVD queue using the mobile app.

Currently the only tablets running Google Android 3.x Honeycomb that officially support Netflix are the Lenovo IdeaPad K1, and Lenovo ThinkPad tablet. Many users have reported it also works on the Asus Eee Pad Transformer once you install the Android 3.2 software update, and while you can’t download the app from the Android Market on other devices, you may still be able to get it to run.
