    I've been using the hacked version, but I see that there is now an official release in the market, and it works!

    Seconded. The problem with it is that the interface is pretty bland. It streams well on a rooted Gingerbread DX, but it's not a particularly good queue manager at all. For the latter, I still have to use NetQ. I'm happy to have official streaming Netflix (had it via PlayOn before) but it'd be nice if they'd both release it for my Xoom AND improve the interface a lot.

    I dl'd it the other day and it performs pretty well. Watched 60% of takers with very little problem and I'm running stock GB.

    No, I'm pretty sure I remember it said in the release notes that it worked on the X's that are on 2.3.3 (GB) only.

    The one from market works and the app has always worked for the x except for the safety block they put in prior to testing it on the x.

    I know the hacked app/pre Market release app worked on the X.

    I'm just wondering about the current app in the Market now, it works with no tweaks/hacks on Froyo?

    Great to hear that the offical release works on the DX but I would love to see it on my Xoom too. Do we still need Real HDMI to stream it to a TV?
