    I know that Netflix was demoed on an LG at cis but it was said that newer snapdragon phones would be the first to stream Netflix. What are the chances the tbolt will get it any time soon?

    I heard it was coming to Snapdragon CPUs that only had the hardware copyright protection. If that's true, the TB will never get it.

    You would think Netflix would want to be as available as possible. Might come in a software update? Rather than from the market

    Let me say this again, you obviously didn't comprehend the first time. If this is true, I heard that Netflix will only be available on Android devices that use a special Snapdragon CPU that features hardware copyright protection, to prevent "theft" of copyrighted materials. If this is indeed true, it will NEVER come to the TB, as the TB does not have one of these "copy protection" CPUs.

    Netflix has been saying for over a year that they are working on something for android phones, yet they never seem to produce...

    Not trying to be rude, but it's obvious you didn't even read my first reply.

    I personally think netflix (my own opinion) sucks, but do wish Xfinity/cable companies would start allowing some type of streaming....that would be sauce.

    Netflix is great if you're talking the DVD rental service. They have EVERYTHING. But their streaming selection blows.

    I agree. Only problem is, if it was released for android you would be getting the same crappy streaming selection...which IMO, is useless.

    Well I did. And because you said it, its set in stone and an absolute fact? Not open to more conversation or questions? If that was YOUR final comment feel free to not comment.
