and where are all those major convenient ios apps that don't make to the play store or Windows market reports? one cannot simply be a genuine writer if all they are doing is humiliating specific OS.

BB10 just came out. There is little interest right now from some companies. It is what it is...

I remember there were articles about iOS and Android apps that took awhile before they made it to WP.

Give it time...its even in the article about Netflix and WP.

"Of course, Windows Phone had no user base to speak of when Netflix first released an app for that platform (just about a month after WP7 launched)"

Thats why I mentioned the article...BB10 just came out. Its been a lil over a month , and it hasnt launched in the US yet. Netflix wasnt available day one on WP.

The Netflix CEO must be a fired ex BB employee or something. It seems to be personal.

What BB10 is experiencing was what Windows Phone experienced previously. I know how BB10 users will feel when many of the popular apps isn't in store. Thank god, the situation for WP is getting better as the day goes. My advise to BB10 users is to pray that BB10 devices sell well, cause that's what will attract devs to create an app for the platform. Give it time, I'm sure the app situation will get better by next year.

What I am about to say is just for fun, for little leg pulling because even I don't believe on what I am to say.

Google and Apple paid Netflix to not to do apps for BlackBerry and WindowsPhone. ;) Nothing else explain it.

Nothing wrong with that, we'll still have the Android emulator and will be able to use Android apps, so we can use Android netflix

Blackberry really needs a great salesman in their business. They need someone to communicate with these companies like Netflix and get them on board for support and stop waiting around for them to do it automatically. They have a new OS and its not going to be easy to get support when your this new. Put yourself to work man.
