It seems that Netflix has let the floodgates open recently on getting clients out to every major platform they can. Set top boxes, video game consoles, and Apple’s mobile round-up all have Netflix applications to facilitate their instant viewing service.
And now Android is getting its fair share of the pie!
Netflix seeks an engineer that has experience building multimedia applications on an embedded mobile platform, and the focus will be to bring a viable Android solution to our ‘droid hungry fingertips. You can check out the job posting here, and if you just so happen to have the experience required to take this beast on (seriously, they are looking for a hardcore coder), be sure to take a solid crack at applying.
How does this make you guys feel? I, for one, am in love with Netflix. It’s what I’m using to get me caught up on Lost before I watch the season finale, and it almost literally replaces my need to pay for cable television. After seeing the iPad support and hearing the announcement of the iPhone version soon after, I’m happy to see Android isn’t being left in the dust. Suddenly, a 3G-ready Android tablet doesn’t sound too bad.
