    We can now stream Netflix movies directly to our Android Honeycomb Tablets without having to bother with third party apps or other workarounds. Wednesday, Netflix announced they have updated their app to include full native support of Honeycomb devices. Additionally, they have now added support for Canadian and Latin American markets too. Here's a link to the Market App below.

    So there is a Market link to the app, but it doesn't use apks??

    Also, does this mean it's using the Honeycomb browser? I don't understand how this is working. What exactly does "full native support" mean? I don't have a honeycomb tablet. Did it not work before?

    That happened to me when I was running Froyo, but it was with the last update. Moving to GB fixed it for me.

    Audio, but no video on my HP Touchpad and Droid 2, both running CM7 Gingerbread. Netflix borked things again.

    And it will support ICS when what, Karmel Korn comes out? Frankly, its sad they consider themselves a company with that slow of a time for customers.
