Any idea when Netflix will be available on the Droid 3?

Yea, good question. I pulled the APK from my OD and installed it (same one that works on my Nook Color) and the first time it crashed the phone and the second it just played what I'll call "green pixel art".
Disappointing to say the least. But, isn't the CPU in the DROID3 OMAP 4 which is Netflix HD certified?
I believe the processor itself is certified at some level, but I think I read somewhere that no phones with that processor have actually been approved yet. Damn they're picky!
I think it shouldn't be long though... first OTA maybe?
Verizon has disabled it pending their launch of VFLIX in early 2013.
Really, I did try to find the humor in that... >_<
Yup, got the same result here.
The OMAP4 processor family was recently certified by Netflix for HD video so I can't imagine it would be too long.
The buzz is within a couple of weeks or so, I don't think it'll take long either.
For me it's mute. I have not been streaming and the announcement yesterday about price increases prompted my wife to remove streaming. Not a big deal I carry about 10 movies or shows on my microSD card anyways.
moot. It's a "moot" point.
The OMAP 4 is certified because it has a security protocol that Netflix approves of and is fast enough, that applies to the OMAP 4 only not the entire phone, you still have to account for other devices. However, with the specs on the Droid 3 I cant imagine it doesn't support streaming so its just a matter of time until they release an update whether it be by the Android Market, or if blocked by Verizon, via other methods.
Until then they should update the regular Netflix app to support the Droid 3
