Netflix hiring Android developers, client on the way

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on June 30th, 2010

Here’s some good news for Android owners. Netflix is on the lookout for an Android developer to help them build a streaming client for Android devices. You dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that an official Netflix app should be on its way.

A Netflix app that will allow subscribers to watch their movies directly on their mobile Android device. There’s no official time frame yet, so who knows when it will happen, but they are working on it.

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on April 3rd, 2010

Netflix coming to the iPhone and iPod touchWe’ve been waiting for a Netflix iPhone app for a long time, but now Steve Swasey, Netflix’s VP of Corporate Communications was specifically asked if there’s an iPhone app in the future. You know, since we are getting one for the iPad. He says they are working on it.

And that’s no doubt good to hear if you’ve been waiting. But in the meantime, go watch Netflix on one of your other devices while taking comfort in Steve’s words, “We wouldn’t invite you to dinner without planning to serve dessert.” See that? They are planning dessert. It’s worth the wait.

Netflix Discs for Wii Arrive in Homes

Posted in Netflix,Wii by Darrin Olson on March 27th, 2010

Netflix instant streaming discs for the Nintendo Wii started arriving in homes today to the delight of many Wii console owners. The service allows Wii owners who subscribe to at least the minimum $9/month plan with Netflix, to watch select streaming movies and television shows direct to their televisions.

Netflix subscribers keep the disc and must have it inserted in the console any time they would like to watch streaming content, while movies sent through mail will continue as they have in the past. Once the disc is inserted and selected from the Wii home menu, an activation code is presented. Users must enter this code on the Netflix website as a one-time activation to enable the streaming service.

Netflix app streams nicely on Windows Phone 7

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2010

The guys over at Engadget just had a quick look at Netflix for Windows Phone 7 Series, one of the third-party apps Microsoft is showing off at MIX10. It looks like what you would expect, lots of red with the Netflix logo.

But unlike some other mobile Netflix apps, this one has Watch Instantly support and it looks pretty decent, which is a score for the capabilities of Microsoft’s Silverlight-based dev platform. We wish it was available right now. Video below.

Do you want a Netflix iPhone app?

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2010

Netflix coming to the Nintendo Wii Game cosoleA recent Netflix survey asked an interesting question. “How likely would you or someone in your household be to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on your iPhone via a Wi-Fi network?” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings did say that Netflix streaming would come to the iPhone “eventually”. Apparently they are gauging the interest and getting ready.

Hopefully they can offer just such an app without running into too much trouble from the studios who are always worried about their rights.

Examine Netflix rental patterns neighborhood by neighborhood

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2010

The New York Times has an interactive Web app that lets you see the popularity of various Netflix titles by neighborhood in a several different cities. It’s a pretty interesting voyeuristic look at who is watching what. But it leaves you with more questions than answers.

For instance Why is The Curious Case Of Benjamin Butler so popular in Chicago? Or for that matter why are any of these people watching Doubt? Don’t they have paint to watch dry?

Netflix now on internet-capable Sony BRAVIA sets

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2009

Sony adds Netflix streaming to BRAVIA setsWell if you don’t have a home theater Netflix streaming option yet, but own an internet-connected Sony BRAVIA TV, Netflix just went live. Just as they promised back in July. You’ll be watching your favorite flicks in no time now.

All you have to do is apply the latest software update and you’re ready to go. What will it be? A drama? Action movie? Comedy? Comedy is PS3 owners having to use a “DVD” to get Netflix working on their console. Feel free to laugh at them.

Netflix PS3 streaming now live

Posted in Netflix by Shane McGlaun on November 10th, 2009

netflix-ps3-disc-reservationWe talked earlier this month about the announcement that the PS3 would be getting Netflix streaming service. Today marks the official live date for the PS3 Netflix deal. If you were wondering how Netflix got around that deal with Microsoft, Blu-ray is the answer.

The Blu-ray disc that has to be in the PS3 at all times uses BD-Live to access the Netflix streaming catalog. As long as the disc is in the PS3, you can stream until your heart’s content. The service is free to all Netflix members, but you have to request one of the discs.

Netflix instant watch on iPhone?

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2009

Netflix instant watch on iPhone?Rumor is that Netflix is going to let iPhone users get in on the fun of streaming movies via WIFI. Users would love it of course, but how would they do it? The iPhone doesn’t support Flash, so it’s probably not going to be a web portal.

Netflix could develop its own app and do it all itself we suppose. How do you think AT&T would feel about users watching video on its wireless network without paying though? We would be surprised if this one panned out anytime soon.

Netflix to stream new ABC shows

Posted in Netflix by Shane McGlaun on August 3rd, 2009

netflix-logo-sbI tried Netflix once for movie rentals but I was never able to get the films I wanted to see the day they came out so I went back to using my local movie store. When Netflix started its streaming service, I thought it was interesting and I am waiting for it to get more offerings before I think about using it again.

Netflix has announced that it will be streaming new ABC shows including popular programs like Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and Legend of the Seeker. Netflix is now offering the first four seasons of Lost in its streaming catalog and the other shows will start streaming in September.

Netflix Blu-ray movies arriving cracked and unplayable

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2009

Netflix Blu-ray movies arriving cracked and unplayableThat’s what seems to be happening with a small group of subscribers who are claiming their discs are arriving with small cracks on the outside edges. They say it’s happening repeatedly. No one is sure what is causing it since the Discs have an extra coating to prevent scratches on Blu-ray.

It could be the automated mail processing machines, manufacturing defects or maybe postal carriers are playing Frisbee. The Mars Box blog experienced this issue back in ’07, but over the last few months reports are picking up again. It’s too bad the extra costs that customers are paying can’t go toward tougher packaging, but Netflix told Wired the problem is “infinitesimally small” and changing shipping wouldn’t be cost effective.

OMG! Netflix Streamed Kenny!

Posted in Netflix by Shane McGlaun on April 6th, 2009

southpark-sbI used Netflix for a while before I realized getting a new movie the day it comes out is about likely as a perfect credit score in today’s economy. It would take weeks to get a new film and by the time it was finally available I would have rented it at my local movie store anyway.

When Netflix started offering streaming movies and TV shows with its subscriptions things got a bit more interesting. Netflix and MTV Networks announced today that they would be streaming popular programs including South Park from Comedy Central.

Netflix raising rates for Blu-ray subscribers by about 20 percent

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2009

NetFlix raises Blu-Ray rental fees by a dollarNo doubt, this will upset a great many of you, but Netflix is raising the price of Blu-ray rentals again. You might remember, Netflix already implemented a $1 per month fee for Blu-ray customers in October. Now it wants to raise it even higher, by around 20 percent across its pricing structure.

It should hit April 27th and is only applicable to BD customers. According to the company, this is all due to having to buy more titles on BD to “accommodate the increasing number of Netflix members who prefer renting movies on Blu-ray.”
