    You do realize netflix just came out in the last 30 days for only a limited number of phones right?

    As for skype I would call and ask htc.

    It has something to do with drm. It will probably arrive for all htc phones on verizon at the same time.

    There is an apk for it that you can install.

    There's a skype .apk on the interwebs that supports video calling.

    I have skype. Like Qik better. Netflix... Waiting for a completely stable gingerbread release. But if you want to run a mostly stable gb rom, you can have netflix.

    I've been hearing that the gb Ron out there now has been causing a lot of issues for tb users. I've been reluctant to root my phone because of that
