Netflix now supported on two-dozen Android devices including the Motorola DROID Bionic
While Netflix recently made headlines by jacking up its monthly price, the video service has also increased the number of Android devices that it supports to 24. Among the lucky two dozen is a phone that has obtained mythical status simply by being redesigned after appearing at CES. Of course, we are talking about the Motorola DROID Bionic. Its inclusion on the list is a good sign that we are not too far away from a launch of the device.

Some of the newer names on the list include the Motorola DROID 3 and the LG Revolution. The Casio G'zOne Commando C771 with Android 2.2 also supports Netflix while only one tablet, the Lenovo K1 Ideapad, is on the list.

With the now widespread use of its mobile streaming service, Netflix has raised rates by splitting up their DVD by mail and streaming services, both of which now cost $7.99 a month. Taking out 2 DVD's at a time will cost you $11.99 per month and if you use your cell phone to receive streaming video, you would have to add another $7.99. While Netflix used to offer a combination rate of $9.99 per month for both DVD and streaming video, that will now cost you $15.98 monthly, assuming you are receiving just 1 DVD by mail at a time. 2 DVD's by mail and streaming video will ring up as $19.98 for a month.

To see if your Android device is among the 24 that supports Netflix, visit the sourcelink. Or, you can just take your chances and head to the Android Market to search for 'Netflix'.

it's in the market for the charge right now, but isn't streaming (last I heard, about an hour or 2 ago). Same with the Tbolt.

Sideload for the win. Even my entry level LG Thrive has Netflix and runs perfectly on it too.

1,3,9,12,14 r the pictures which tells different story than just a beautiful picture.There is EQ in these pictures than IQ.Its tough to decide which one is best.my personal vote is for 9. this reminds me Van Ghogs picture.Currently am browsing on phone..so cant see full details of the pictures.

Big talk coming from someone who's a fan of a team that got beat in the playoffs lol. And they thought Labon Jame, or whatever that black guy name is, would actually make a difference.

No Miz we lost in NBA finals and yes lebron let us down but I'm not going to cry about it, we still did good. Your another one of these fanboys who are afraid of the android takeover why? Just accept it.

Android can't even be innovative without copying Apple. So no, 'm not bitter or afraid.

Funny, it's not like I care about the NBA anyways since it's a subpar sport to begin with.

is that why iOS 5 uses a notification shade kind of just like what Android has been using during it's entire existence. ;)

i tried making my Droid 2 think it was a Nexus S at one point and it didn't help it work on it at all. it didn't hurt to try though, it wasn't hard. o:

ooh tough luck considering the Droid 2 isn't even half as good a device as a Nexus.

Not my Atrix. f**k U MOTOROLA for not supporting us Atrix owners. I still don't see Ginger Bread or NETFLIX. This is the last phone I will be buying from you. Next year I will be getting the next Galaxy S phone.

That's it I'M NOT BUYING any more MOTOROLA PHONES after this. All their devices except the Atrix which I strongly support since CES. And my ATRIX have yet to RECEIVED GINGER BREAD. Sorry Motorola you guys Fail for updating my Atrix and all other Atrix owners. will never buy another Motorola ever after this.

..you know there's six Motorola handsets on the list including the Atrix? you can calm yourself about the Gingerbread update too, it's in field testing right now.

Just downloaded for my Atrix. Pages don't scroll for me at all, so I can't see anything beyond 4 episodes of a show. And the Genre tab doesn't work at all. To be fair though I've seen Netflix act up on the iPad (video freezing every 60 seconds, went away after a restart), and the iPhone (wouldn't load over 3G the other day).

Edit: and then I restart it on the Atrix and it works fine. Weird.
