Had to call Netflix Customer Service to change my account to Streaming Only. Asked the customer service rep. about support for the Acer Iconia a500. He said that a supported device had to: 1: have Android 2.2 or higher & 2: support Silverlight if not then to stream Netflix would "never" happen. I asked about IOS not supporting Silverlight and was told Apple had proprietary software that was approved by Netflix and for our Acer's to ever to be able to stream then they (Acer) would have to work out a proprietary program that meet Netflix model. Personally I think he's wrong!
