Just installed it, logged in, and tried streaming a few different movies... Doesn't work

EDIT: I got a movie to load, and it played for a few seconds, then it closed on me.
I am getting notifications - "DRM Notification - License Required"

Same as everyone else. The video will start to load and then stops and goes back to the main screen. I'm going to leave the app on my phone to see if I get the "update."

I did get the DRM message that is posted in another thread as soon as I opened it. I wonder if that has something to do with it not working.

Installed fine and let me log in, when I tried to view a movie, bunch of DRM errors the one time and exited back out. Now all subsequent attempts, it looks like it's going to start then back to the movie listing.

Edit: same as everyone else lol, I was too slow posting

Not as simple as installing the app. Netflix can block by the device and OS. My guess is it is not yet active, since the device it is for has not shipped yet. Netflix app works great on my iPod 4 while tethering with my Incredible. This suggests the app is not blocked by carrier (not practical anyway, since folks also use wifi).

I haven't even gotten as far as you guys on my thunderbolt. If I attempt to stream anything on netflix, it brings up a menu entitled "Instant Watching System Compatibility" and tells me "streaming is not supported for your operating system."

Then it tells me I need a computer that meets minimum requirements and lists those for Windows and Mac.
