Android users rejoice; Netflix app now available to all with 2.2+ It's taken a very long time but Netflix fans got some good news today.
Android phone users with software 2.2 Froyo or above can now use the Netflix app which had been available to just two dozen handsets.

Be reminded, Netflix is still not available for Honeycomb tablet users unless you have a Lenovo IdeaPad.

Downloading the updated Netflix app, version 1.4 will give access to 80 percent of Android users, which have Froyo or higher (up to 2.3.4 currently).

To use the Netflix app, you need a $7.99 streaming account from the company. Also, if you have a phone with Android 2.1 or lower, you are likely not moving to 2.2 anytime soon, (at least not without root).

Get it here: Netflix 1.4 at the Android Market

There has been a hacked sideload version of this forever...I can't believe it took so long for an official one.

I cant believe anyone would want it with how pricy bandwidth is over cell networks.
