    Hey guys,

    I got the 3d today and was really hoping that netflix would work unlike the current situation with the EVO. I pulled open the market and didn't see it, so I wasn't too optimistic. I had saved the apk on my computer, and i just downloaded onto the phone. I can confirm that it DOES WORK on the 3d. I watched a whole movie without any issues. If you need the apk, just Google it.

    Hey, help me out here, I must be doing SOMETHING wrong... :thinking:
    I go to download this apk and get the message that the content is not supported on this phone. It'll let me download anyway and I do so only to be told in "Downloads" that "cannot open file"..?
    I tried the link on the first page of that xda forum and I also tried the "blue" as someone suggested. It is an .apk file I did download. Under Setting>Applications Unknown Sources is toggled to allow.
    Help? Thanks.

    ok the files are zipped. so you must unzip/extract first. then the apk is there. after that, click to install. i actually installed this using androzip on the phone... extracted it in the downloads section then it launched..

    Thanks man, that did the trick and it seems to be working great. Can I just go ahead and delete all the files from my Downloads folder now, that's not where it installed it at is it?

    I just got the evo 3d and I cannot find the netflix app in the market for it. I even uninstalled the app on my evo 4g and reinstalled it just to make sure it wasnt pulled. Ive even tried the qr bar code and it still wont show up. Is anyone else having this problem???

    It's not in the market, but you can head over to XDA, for they have it.

    I tired every version of the app from XDA but I just get very choppy and/or highly pixelated images. I've rulled out things like network (4G and Laptop both do fine on the same wireless network going to the same 20Mb/s business class cable modem connection), Apps (reboot, pulled battery reboot, barely anything installed on the 3D yet), but, no joy.

    For those saying it works ok, has anyone tried to watch more than a few seconds of a movie or tv show?
