    Having Netflix on my phone would just be icing on the cake. It's interesting to see that there is a reference to it in the newest build. We'll see.

    If I can watch movies through netflix on my phone I would be so happy and might forget about my hatred towards moto for the locked bootloader for a few hours

    Failing to load is progress? What used to happen when you tried to load... phone caught fire, went up in a puff of smoke?

    Lol

    Being able to let my daughter watch Sponge Bob or pretty much whatever she wants on my phone while we're in the car would be awesome. And I imagine others could watch it on their commutes to and from work if they take the bus, or train, or etc. Just because its not a big deal for you, doesn't mean that it isn't a much wanted feature for others of us.

    um this is a big deal because a lot of us would like to watch netflix on our phones. I don't see why you need to ask why this is a big deal.. .

    Well it would be great on my DX and on my Xoom. We have the Blockbuster app but it sucks. Netflix would be gold.
