Netflix Android app leaks, doesn't work on most phones

Android users continue to wait patiently for two key video apps: Netflix and Hulu. Just recently, we found a change on the Hulu site which indicates an app might be coming soon -- and now the Netflix Android app has been leaked. Unfortunately, the pre-release app doesn't really function the way you'd like a Netflix app to function. While you will be able to log in, view your Watch Instantly...

Netflix iPad app updated improved UI, loses disc management

The Netflix iPad app got a back-end update yesterday that pushed out a new iPad-optimized interface replacing the previous lightly customized version of the standard Nexflix site. In doing so, Netflix has removed the ability to manage your disc queue from the app, limiting you to browsing just the Home, Genres, Search, and Instant Queue areas of the site. This brings the app into line with the...

Netflix and CBS sign deal for more streaming shows

Netflix has just signed a deal to add CBS shows to its streaming library. The two-year agreement means Netflix subscribers can watch Medium, Frasier, Cheers, Star Trek, Twin Peaks and more via the Watch Instantly feature.

Queuenoodle warns you when Netflix streaming movies are about to expire

Streaming movies on Netflix is convenient, but the films aren't available forever. If you've got a packed Watch Instantly queue and you need to make sure you watch your flicks before they expire, subscribe to Queuenoodle, a new Twitter feed from Twitter's Robin Sloan. It posts alerts between a day and a week before a movie expires, so you don't miss it. Heck, maybe you'll see a movie that you...

PlayOn brings Hulu, Netflix viewing to Android beta testers

Whlie Hulu and Netflix still don't have first-party apps in the Android Market, PlayOn users will soon be able to tap into the popular video services on their Android smartphones. Once again, it's PlayOn which has a solution. PlayOn released an iOS version back in August 2010 and is now passing out invites to its customers (like this one sent to us by Chris H.) to join an expanded Android beta...

At the bottom of the list is Clearwire, an ISP majority-owned by...

Netflix removes 'add to DVD queue' from streaming devices

Netflix will remove the "add to DVD queue" button from its interface on streaming devices in order to free up resources and "improve the overall streaming experience," the company said in a blog post. The Netflix website, which is still the most popular way users manage their DVD queues, is unaffected by this change. The blog post is vague about what's actually being removed, and which devices...

Netflix to go international in 2011?

Over at Cnet, Don Reisinger is reporting that Netflix is positioning itself for international expansion.

Google TV gets a big update, adds Netflix support

While tech pundits don't seem ready to give Google TV the thumbs up, yesterday's update certainly makes Google's home entertainment platform a bit more compelling.

Netflix and Disney/ABC have agreed to a big, fat content expansion deal which will give the popular streaming service access to more shows and movies from ABC, Disney, and ABC Family. The Netflix presser highlights the addition of Ugly Betty, Brothers & Sisters, Scrubs, and -- wait for it -- Hannah Montana.
