    The Netflix improved user interface has already come to Android Tablets as well as the iPad and the iPhone. For whatever reason, it has taken Netflix quite a while to extend that new UI to Android phones. That is now changing. According to reports, the newly improved UI version of Netflix will be rolling out as of the time of this article (or sooner). Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    It makes you wonder what took them so long?

    It looks much better. THey just need to do two important things now.
    1) fix the abomination that is the PC interface. Trying to slap a tablet UI onto a PC web page is not the way to go.. It is really really unusable and slow
    2) Please can we browse shows in landscape format. I am watching the shows in landscape I dont want to have to keep flipping the phone or worse if I am using hdmi I dont want to have to rotate my head 90 degrees when trying to search for movies..

    I had it on my .232 Bionic, told my wife & she saw it on her GNex. Mine no longer has the new UI, but hers does. I've tried uninstalling & wiping data, with no luck.

    Any ideas, anyone?

    Nope. I also get the old interface. I saw it 1 time and then it was back to the old one.

    Ever since Netflix put out this new UI the application has been running MUCH slower then previously. And there's no way to uninstall or rollback. Garbage.
