    Seems to work just fine, I do have the green line across the top but it isn't interfering with watching anything.

    I downloaded the file that rebel101150 posted, put it in my dropbox, and installed it on my phone. Works perfectly minus the green line at the top.

    Got it working... had to download the .apk to my computer (from rebels link in the first post) then hooked up the usb connection and transferred to my phone.. Then I went to android market and downloaded an app installer.. pointed the app installer to the transferred .apk file and installed... just logged into my netflix account and was able to watch while lifting weights at the Gym...

    I do get the green bar across the top & also a shift of some colors (red by the looks of it)... so a pair of red lips get shifted down some... so isn't perfect... but better than nothing... so am seeing double (kinda sorta)

    does that make sense and is there a fix for it???

    Thats the problem there isn't. Your seeing red, mine is actually doing that with green. Although i'm partially colorblind so that could just be me. It's the GPU as far as I know and when A new kernel comes along for this phone it might just improve it. I've heard people with CM7 saying it runs flawless. So i'm working with a couple devs to try and get a custom rom and kernel ported right now. Other than that it's just a waiting game.

    Don't get me wrong.... I thank you for the post.. It helps me take the sting out of working out at the gym and a pleasant diversion I am sure if I need it in a pinch ( I really dislike mindless workouts.. up.. down... up ... down...) It helps a LOT this netflix app

    I'm in a cut phase right now so believe me I know the feeling. Pandora gets me through the morning run with my sanity in check. When i'm lifting and running it helps a lot.

    There's a new one floating around. Ill upload it soon as I can. At work right now
    Or go to 4shared.com and search Netflix.apk and it will say Netflix.disabled.phonecheck.apk

    There's alot of them, go to a different thread

    LG ally all things root
    Look for the thread that says leaked Netflix app
    Go to last page and death2all110 has the app posted and it works great for me
