PSA: Netflix 1.3 APK Could Work on Your Honeycomb Tablet

Your device still not listed alongside the growing list of Netflix-capable phones? We’re especially annoyed that tablets seem to be getting the shaft here when it comes to official compatibility, but folks have discovered that the new Netflix 1.3 .APK actually works for some Android Honeycomb tablets, including the Transformer, the XOOM and the Iconia Tab. Mileage will vary, but there’s a good chance you could end up with some streaming shows and movies on your little big screen. Go ahead and try it by downloading this file and installing it as you would any other application. Those of you on phones might as well give it a go, as well. [Android Police]

    Cancelled my netflix subscription. The fact that they were fucking around with their android app by holding out on some devices, and their price increase made me drop them. I hope Google buys Hulu!

    I downloaded the Netflix 1.3.apk file from MultiUpload into a C:/Downloads file on my PC, then transferred it to the SD card on my g-tab via the USB connection.
    Clicked on that .apk file while in Astro File manager, and installed it…. It told me there was an update, so I downloaded and installed it while on my g-tab.

    With the price change, does Netflix have any plans to increase the number of shows/movies that are available by streaming?

    • Brian

    It’s so funny you have to ask people if it works. el oh el.

    If Honeycomb was a serious and decent platform to develop for, Netflix wouldve supported it and had the app out.

    Do amazon prime streaming vids work on tablets? Kind of like not having to pay monthly and getting the free 2 day shipping.

    • Brian

      Yes watch on my xoom all the time…but not a lot of shows

      • ILikeStake

        Nice, I’m sure it’ll get better. Hell, I didn’t even know they had it with Prime. One day I stumbled across it and pee’d a little.
