    Okay...so I read that hulu is blocked on our phones, and someone said to try netflix instead. Well, I have a netflix account and it sounded like a great way to stream something for the kids when we're stuck waiting.
    But...NO IT DOESN'T WORK! UGGHH!!!
    Am I missing something? Has anyone gotten either of these to stream on their droid?
    I'm rooted and running BB v0.4 if that makes any difference. TIA for any help!

    Netflix uses MS silverlight to stream the video which Android doesn't support. Netflix is working on an Android app but who knows when it will be out.

    Netflix blog mentions iPhone, but not Android, but back in April they advertised for an Android developer, so they are working on it.

    I use the Dolphin Browser and have the agent set to desk top. It allows me view Hulu with no problem. I can not view netflix but hula works fine.

    Do you have anything else on your phone to do this? Or just the browser? I can't get it to work.

    Never heard of it? Is it available in the market?

    Sounds great. I use the dolphin browser HD. Where do I set to desktop? I'm scrolling through all the settings that I can find right now...but don't see anything like that.

    Yes, but only for queue management - I installed it and it does not offer any *viewing* - yet.

    I have a feeling that when NetFlix gets their client written up it will probably offer limited viewing at first.

    Yes.

    You will not get netflix to work on your phone until they release an app. Netflix requires you to download a plugin that cannot be installed on the Android system.

    I can watch netflix on my droid

    I have a slingbox, and attached to it I have my directv, plus my Blu-Ray player, that has NETFLIX

    So, just hook up to it, and voila, I can watch netflix on wifi or 3G
