    Dude. I just gotta job yesterday and I might legit consider it. I got my laptop, PC, Ally, Xbox360 all that can run netflix and I guess i never looked at it cause i thought it would be tooo expensive. But hell. My new job, i make 9 bucks in one hour so im good.

    it's good if you like older movies/shows but if you're like me & are into updated movies/shows not so much. I do use it on my PS3 so my son can watch cartoons lol

    Yeah, Netflix is cool. I have a friend that pays for the Premium Package (~16 a month iirc) it lets him attach as many devices as he wants, so I use his account for my xbox, pc, laptop, and my gf's dinc.

    After using it for about half a year I have a really hard time finding content worth watching. Im sure the snail-mail dvds have good selection, but the OnDemand play is lacking.

    I like hulu for newer shows and more content updates, only problem is I refuse to pay hulu the 7.99 a month to stream to mobile devices and xbox, especially since they have commercials.... Lots of commercials, but hey, without commercials I would never know theres a new Call of Duty comming out

    How are the load times? And have you tried on both WiFi and 3G?

    Indeed the Netflix Instant or whatever they call it needs to be updated with more recent movies. There's a pretty decent selection of tv shows, but the movie selection seems to get more and more outdated.

    I have several devices active on my account, 2 PCs, a laptop, Xbox, my parents laptop, and my Nook. I didn't know there was a limit and will have to check on it before I run into issues.

    Well... yes, it works. Picture quality isn't great and the color was washed out, but it does work.

    They removed the device check from the official app. Netflix did. And i got a month free of HuluPlus on my 360 just go onto their page when using IE9. and after this month is up i get another month for being a student ;) arent very many commercials from what ive seen

    If you want a good idea of what video could be like on the Ally, check out the TV.com app. I use it to watch the CSI shows and NCIS. Not much else worth watching there but it proves that you don't have to have an uber phone to watch programs. It's all about how the video is delivered.

    Yeah now you can use the official Netflix app.
    It works just like it did in the cracked app. But here is where I am concerned. The ally cant download netflix from the market. We are at the mercy of people uploading the .apk. If they upgrade again are we going to be in the same boat again? Waiting for XDA to put up the latest Netflix app?

    Oh well maybe I shouldnt borrow trouble and just be glad Netflix came to their senses and took the device check off. They better keep me happy. they are hanging on by a thread in my house.

    added the most current Netflix app that works

    I downloaded the app and it installed, but I can't get it to run. Just sits at a black screen and sometimes force closes.

    I dunno guys. All I know is that it works fine on mine and my wifes.

    You might try to see if you have any devices left on your netflix account.

    You can only have 6 devices with the smaller netflix accounts.

    I have heard that being the problem with some peoples.

    Just remove some devices and then try again.

    Thats the only suggestion I have.

    Well technically doesn't make sense because i can't even get the app to open to enter any account information, but I'll give it a shot anyways. Thanks
