Netflix for Android APK leaks out of a hacked LG Revolution
The LG Revolution may not be even out yet, but that didn't stop some skilled hacker from digging deep inside of the software installed on an unreleased unit. Nothing that unusual was found stored within the smartphone's memory with the exception of one Android package, which will probably grab the attention of all Netflix fans out there.

Seems like Netflix for Android is to come preinstalled on the LG Revolution bringing streaming movies for your viewing pleasure on the smartphone's beautiful 4.3-inch screen. The leaked Netflix APK is already circulating the web, though it does not seem to be doing anything on any Android device that it has been tried on. Hardware and software limitations could be the cause of this and the LG Revolution may be the first Android smartphone technically capable of playing movies via Netflix's video streaming service. Check out this article of ours to find out exactly why.

However, if you are feeling that today is your lucky day, there is nothing holding you back from giving  Netflix for Android a go. If somehow you get it to work, feel free to let us know in the comments below.

Downloaded and Installed on Droid X. Able to sign into program and see my queue. Clicking on movies when connected to 3g appears to start loading but then brings you back to the queue screen. Will test WiFi once I get home tonight.

I installed it on my Droid X. I am able to manage my queue and search for movies, but when I try to watch anything, it takes me back to the main screen- tried it on 3G and WIFI.

Of course it doesnt work. Its for Android. Even necessary things like Exchange email rarely works on android.

What are you talking about... I have an android and I am able to use my exchange email better than a few friends that have the iphone and blackberry systems. I also watch tv and loaded movies seamlessly! So do your research before you look like a complete IDIOT... ohh wait to late.

I think you're the fanboy. Why did you take his post so hard? Only fanboys get this emotional about their phones. It's a known fact android phones have problems with all types of email including exchange.

I dunno... the fact that zuno went out of his/her way to hate on Android makes me think that zuno is a fanboy too (I'm guessing for the iPhone).

In any case, I hope that they are able to find a way to properly port this app to other android devices.

its not as simple as just installing the app. it wont work on ANY android phone that is currently out. The current crop of android phones dont have the right security protocols or whatever in their chipset. This will be the first phone that has the right protocols and will be able to stream it. Unless those badasses at XDA figure out some way to trick the system, u wont be streaming netflix till your next android phone.

Installed this app on my rooted DInc. When I first opened, it prompted for an update (which I did). This app works fine for me over WiFi and 3G. About freaking time we got Netflix!
