Netflix app for Android is finally for real, but only to select devices so far

Netflix app for Android is finally for real, but only to select devices so far
Some Android owners might have been irked out to find Windows Phone 7 getting its groove on with an official Netflix app before them, but after much wait, it’s finally here! However, you probably want to be just a little reserved for the moment since not all Android smartphones will be able to download the long time coming app.

Specifically, if you happen to own with the HTC EVO 4G, T-Mobile G2, HTC Incredible, Google Nexus One, or the Google Nexus S, you’ll be happy to know that you can download the app right now through the Android Market. As for the rest of the bunch, it’s unknown at this point when it’ll be made available to other devices since they have to individually test each handset due to the lack of standard streaming playback features amongst Android devices.

Nonetheless, they’ll be hard at work trying to get it out to a good chunk of other Android handsets out there, but be warned; it might not come to all. So if you happen to sport any of the devices mentioned above, go right on ahead and download the Netflix app for your phone!

Thanks to our anonymous tipster!

For someone that doesn't use Netflix... is Netflix any better than Blockbuster app?

yaa... but it is a subscription... not a pay for each movie kinda thing... so if u watch the occasional movie like once a month then its not worth to get netflix... and blockbuster has a more up to date selection for streaming

Downloaded it last night on my Incredible and I must say it's freaking awesome. Streamed flawlessly over wifi and still pretty good over 3G.
