Any know how to watch Netflix Instant movies on a Xoom?
Can't yet. Netflix will only launch on platforms that can meet it's DRM requirements. There is debate on which platforms will meet the DRM requirement. Potentially it may never come to xoom.
You can use software called play on for streaming netflix. Watch Internet Videos on Your TV | PlayOn
Ya you have to have a PC turned on and transcoding it for you though.
Watch Amazon Prime Instant movies free for 30 days! They bought Netflix Europe last month,3000 movie,students can watch free for 1 yr.
Erm no they bought LoveFilm:
Amazon Buys Lovefilm, The Netflix Of Europe
And it doesn't work for students unless something changed in the last couple of weeks. You have to pay the $79/year.
I think it's going to be a contender though once they start getting some licenses in place.
Thankyou for the correction,I am currenty using it during free trial for 30 days,then
I will pay them 79.00 yr.Prime members also get free 2 day shipping on purchases for the year as well.
I've had prime since the day it came out... what... 7 years ago? I buy a majority of my stuff on amazon just since I'm so far from civilization. The movie streaming is a great bonus.
So I take it there is no way to play movies from Netflix on my Xoom alone?
oops just saw the first post from Xaza...thanks!

There is a way. Do some searching on YouTube. Basically it entails setting your pc up as a server that allows you to remotely access your pc and navigate through your Que. Of course that means you have to leave your pc turned on all the time but its a start.

Ya it's called playon. You have to subscribe, keep a (fairly high end) PC turned on, and use your up (if away from home)/down stream BW to do it. Not worth it to me personally but if you are desperate enough...
Install megaviewer pro from the market. Best $6 ever. Recent movies.
Its working now as of today. You need to look on the net for netflix xoom app download and install the apk I have it working on my xoom without any 3rd party apps or playon.
Here is the app I installed on my xoom since it doesnt show in the android market yet.https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B2...NWYwYi00MWMwLTk4OWMtMzEwMzMzZWIzZTc1&hl=en_US
It works like a charm check out my youtube video.
Its also works on Motorola Defy smartphone - confirmed, its for those who are interested.
