    Search the market for netflix and there are some apps. I'm pretty sure you can't stream netflix films down to your phone at this time.

    The apps I found were how to manage your account, not view instant movies.

    doubt this will even be possible when flash comes out.

    Plus you just know if they DO make an app it'll be for Iphone first.

    You are right. Flash will not help, Netfix uses Silverlight.

    First point is true. Netflix uses MS Silverlight, not Flash, so it will likely never happen for any non-WinMo Phone.

    Second point is not true. We'll have Flash sometime this year, and the iPhone will never get it. Steve Jobs doesnt believe in Flash, so they're working their own alternative.

    oh i knew that part (about Jobs) but you have to think if they do pour the money into making an app (as well as paying off the studios to agree) they'll go to the largest market base first.

    But hopefully not :)

    I watch netflix when I tether with USB, works ok but stops to rebuffer and that takes a while each time it does this, any ideas on this? I have the latest adobe flash on my computer.
