    streaming was never free from netflix. you always had to pay for streaming.

    the only difference is they are splitting the physical DVD/BD rentals and streaming apart.

    I'll split the difference with you.

    They raised the price for streaming prior to enabling Xoom/Netflix functionality.

    Streaming has always been $7.99. They raised the price of getting physical media, not streaming.

    The new apk works great on my Xoom as well as my HTC Inspire 4g

    Is the video quality really bad for anyone else? It is so grainy that I cant read text that is on the screen.

    ive only used it on wifi (novatel mifi and home network) and what i usually see is low res for about 30 seconds-1 minute then its all good from there. even skipping ahead a bit works.

    Actually streaming used to be 8.99 until a few months ago and then the price was lowered. But happy days.

    Link in first post. Make sure you go to settings and check "allow non market apps to be installed" if you haven't already done so.

    Is this not optimized for the Xoom? The picture seems very stretched out and extremely poor quality. I have a wifi only Xoom and a solid wireless-N connection.
