    Just installed CM7 on my NC, and trying to add Netflix. It's not showing up in my Market for some reason though.

    Also, I tried clearing the data in the Market app, but the Market app doesn't appear in my list of running applications. Very strange since I know I have Market on the device!

    Any clue?

    Get the offical .apk from here
    Install using apk installer or a file manager such as root explorer

    That is because Droid X is one of the officially supported phones. It still works on others you just need the apk from the link in my other post. List of officially supported phones:

    could anyone explain why netflix is not made available to every device running at least 2.2. this seems sort of odd. Why would they want to exclude it?

    Ok here it is

    1. They don't have time to test every android device
    2.Not every device has built in DRM capabilities
    3. On lower end phones there are issues with picture quality and a green bar at the top
