    Netflix: Rent as many movies as you want for only $8.99 a month! Free Trial

    * The Netflix app runs on these phones:
    1. HTC Incredible with Android 2.2
    2. HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3
    3. HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2
    4. HTC G2 with Android 2.2
    5. Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3.

    NC is not listed for any Tablets - or any tablets for that matter. is this something the Developers will be able to tweak into CM7 - or onto other devices that are not listed on their short list.

    The new app works well on my EVO (as advertised), but I, too, am interested in knowing whether the NC dev dudes will be able to make this work in a ROM.

    Works great on my HTC Incredible...

    It allowed me to download to the Nook, and it runs until you get the "This device is unsupported",,,,


    Bummer!

    This is exactly what the video I posted covers. It works perfectly.

    HINT: When Netflix slows down and doesn't display an image (just audio), fire up your task killer and smoke everything. And for those not on unlimited internet, get a bandwidth monitor. I'm on AT&T, and it went to a 150gb cap last week. I watched 3 movies over the weekend and it burned 2gb. Now add to that fact that we have another NC, a desktop system and a laptop, plus my phone......... It adds up quickly. We're looking at Comcast now because they have a 250gb cap...

    Oh man, this is tempting. Also tempting is PlayOn, though I discovered today (in the fine print) that you still have to pay for Netflix and Amazon services. I don't want to pay money for things I can already stream for free, especially now that the last 2 Flash updates have allowed me to watch Adult Swim on my NC.

    At any rate, any other firsthand accounts of the Netflix app on Nook?

    Edit: I couldn't wait, so I got a free trial of Netflix, backed up my system, and edited build.prop. So far everything works beautifully. I tried an episode of Whitest Kids You Know and a/v quality is as smooth as I hoped. Headphones may be necessary, but I guess that is to be expected with the NC. I have no complaints. (Well, aside from Netflix's awful lack of HBO, Showtime, and AMC shows, etc.)

    Easy process with lovely results. Definitely works with CM7.

    Used my task killer before launching Netflix and it plays nice and smooth. Cool part is I still have 1.1.0 on EMMC. I booted off a microSD running dual boot CM7/Honeycomb. Loaded Netflix on CM7 and it plays well. Wasn't sure running off the microSD card would work but it does.

    As for AT&Ts DSL data cap. I called AT&T about it last week and the support guy knew nothing about it. I had to explain it to him! He put me on hold for 10 minutes and finally came back with a small blurb from their web site. Nice training. From what he said I should have about 2.5 months to find a new provider. I am a regular Netflix/Roku user so 150 GB isn't going to cut it.

    ever since i got Netflix working i haven't touched my playon - only use it occasionally for Hulu - instead, Netflix in combination with TVShow Stream makes me a very happy camper

    Strangely, though the app worked fine for me before, I'm now getting stuck on a black screen. Pressing pause and then play or moving the slider causes the video to terminate altogether. I even deleted the app and installed the XDA apk that is supposed to disable device checking, but I'm still getting the same problem. It's not a huge deal since I'm far more likely to use Netflix on my Wii, but it would be nice to have this working again.

    I'm also finding that I can no longer save changes to build.prop. My idea was to change the model and manufacturer again, but there's an error whenever I try to save. I'm guessing this isn't related. Weird.

    Edit: Of course, the fix was a simple reboot. It did seem to free up resources that even a task killer couldn't help with, so maybe that's the reason.
