    Have you tried going to the Netflix site thru the browser and streaming a video that way?

    To do it right it does take months, seriously. Better they get it working right than shovel a piece of crap on us.

    I wonder if a netflix app would work considering the FCC's net neutrality ruling. I couldn't help but notice that the crackle movie app no longer works on Sprint's 3g network. Could Sprint be slowing down movie streaming apps?

    dont know...

    but if they can do blockbuster.. and Samsung Hub... then I dont see issue with Netflix.

    and I hear HTC is working with netflix to bring in their version of media hub for HTC Sense.

    This is exactly why I switched to netflix. I stayed with BB until all the stores near my home and job disappeared. Now I'm with netflix and loving it.

    Also, for those saying "well you are never without a movie with blockbuster cause you can just swap them out at the store." Sure, but with netflix you can just stream without having to go to the store. Is it really $4 to stream a movie with BB??

    Some have complained about netflix streaming selection, but I've been very satisfied with it. Stream older movies & tv shows, get newer ones by mail. Perfect combo. OK not perfect.. ability to stream 100% of their content would be ideal (including on my phone), but this works plenty well for me.

    Absolutely no regrets about switching.
