Netflix Now Available on All Froyo and Gingerbread Devices; Honeycomb Users Left Out

Sep 12, 2011

Good news, everyone! Netflix is now available on even more devices than ever before! The app now supports all devices running Android 2.2 or 2.3, instead of the selective list of devices it once supported. While getting Froyo or Gingerbread on one’s device is sometimes an issue thanks to lackadaisical carrier support, at least now there are far fewer limiting factors than there once were. For those Android owners who now have the ability to watch streaming Netflix shows and movies anywhere, may I suggest Breaking Bad, which is now available on Netflix? No, I can’t, I can only order you to watch it.

Unfortunately, Honeycomb tablet owners appear to be still left in the dark, as tablets like the Motorola Xoom can’t install the app directly from the Market; while some sideloading tricks may still work, this is still a step away from Netflix being as ubiquitous on Android as it is on iOS.
