    In my opinion, there are apps that are neat and there are apps that are useful. I can see this app as "neat", but not useful. I live in the Los Angeles area and can't even watch a simple non-HD Youtube flick without having the screen freeze and buffer constantly. It would also seem pointless to watch an entire movie on such a small screen. And to kill your battery. Under what circumstances would you be provoked to watch a streaming movie from Netflix on your Droid or any other phone?

    Thanks liam. But are you willing to watch a movie that's constantly freezing while buffering? Or are you able to stream successfully without much interruption? Certainly, we don't know how Netflix will work when released for the Droid, but based on my video experience with the Droid, I don't think it will be very successful at full streaming. Maybe it's just where I live...

    I could see watching TV show episodes on it, but probably not full movies. But I'll take it for FREE since I have Netflix anyway...

    I use my phone all the time to watch movies and TV shows... I use alot of public transportation... I probably watch 2-3 movies a week on the way to and from work... while i am sure i could use my time to do somethign more productive, I find this to be a great way to kill an hour commute here and there...

    It would be awesome if you could save the movies to your phone for use later as well... then it would work for all the flights i take to boot...

    +1 I already have Netflix so for me its worth it plus when I'm at work looking at an easy 8hours of OT I don't mind leaving my phone plugged in for a little while (pause the movie let the movie DL and buffer) I can sit and read the paper do something else for that time plus where I work there is free wifi available and its amazing. Not to start a pissing match but I think this would be pretty cool.

    I think more useful if you already have netflix and good connections 3g and wifi easily available in the places you frequent

    This would be awesome.

    I only use Netflix to watch movies and TV online. I let my wife fuss with the DVDs.

    Soon I will be able to queue up 8hrs of movies and do nothing at all at work without using the office network. I still haven't managed to get Hulu to work on Froyo. It seems hulu detects the OS and redirects.

    My coworker has an Iphone 3G and he just installed Netflix and we watched a few minutes of a show on it. This was done using WiFi and it worked perfectly, as one would expect with WiFi. He has no way of knowing how it would work with 3G because in our area ATT does not yet offer 3G, only Verizon does. I always give him a hard time since I have had 3G for the better part of a year with my Droid and he can't use it on his Iphone. Anyway, Netflix with WiFi works perfectly on his Iphone. Hopefully it will come soon for the Droid and work as well. I would be interested to see how it does on 3G since it should be quite a while before we get 4G here.

    As a Netflix subscriber I think this will be a useful app. Especially on days at work when it's slow and I need something other than Podcasts or Sirius to listen to. Can't wait for this to be released, as well as an app to control my Comcast DVR.

    so please pardon my ignorance, but until the Netflix app is released, there is not an (officially supported) way to view Netflix videos on one's Android phone?

    Correct. We have to wait (hopefully not too long :)). I haven't tried just going to the Netflix site via the browser to see if it works or not. I know the website uses Silverlight if you stream via PC, so not sure that even with Flash on your phone that it'll work.
