Flix brings Netflix to the PlayBook - kinda
One of the missing apps from the PlayBook’s portfolio that causes great disdain is Netflix. While there is still no official app available, a new app called Flix has just been released that can help you out – at least in certain situations.

Flix allows you to stream Netflix from your PC to you PlayBook. Because of this, your PC and PlayBook must be on the same Wi-Fi connection, it only works on Windows, and, currently, there are no player controls on the PlayBook.

While this isn’t exactly the solution many are looking for, especially if your PlayBook is on the move with you a lot, it does let your lounge around your house and watch Netflix videos on your PlayBook.

Flix is available in the App World now for $2.99. To see Flix in action, be sure to check out the demo video below.

Seems like a waste of $2.99 seeing as your computer is Right There......

agreed since you can use Splashtop to do the same thing, and much, much more, on the Playbook. Its a must have app for PB owners (at least until developers take the PB more seriously and we get all the big name apps) as it gives you access to virtually everything like Netflix, Skype, Hulu, and so on that you can't use really on the PB.
