Netflix Updated In The Android Market – Now Supports CM7, Subtitles and Alternate Audio


Netflix updated their Android app today in the Market and I must say, I’m a little puzzled by this one. While I don’t actually subscribe to their service or use their app, I could have sworn some of the “new additions” were already there in the last version. Hmmm.. Well, whether it was just your typical bug-fixes or new features, Netflix did in fact update their app today, listing notable changes as Android 3.x support and support for CM7. Kinda neat to see a big company like Netflix officially supporting the Android modding community like that. Also thrown in was support for subtitles and alternate audio which means you can now watch those weird foreign movies like “Old Boy” without poor dubbing! And all from your handy smartphone or tablet. Woot!

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

    1. It is.  I remember saving it to my ‘watch instantly’ slot.  Maybe it’s not on there anymore though

      1. I had it on my instant watch list as well, but looks like they took it out. 

  2. This actually isn’t new. The first 4 bullet points are from the October 21st update. This update is only minor bug fixes.


  3. I’ve never had Netflix problems on CM7.

  4. Wow… Netflix actually works on my old Droid Eris now.  Pretty nifty.

  5. So i can watch subtitles on my Android device, but on my xbox360 not?…

    1. I was thinking the same exact thing. I wonder if PS3 users have subtitles.

      1. Yep, not for everything but for a lot.  Gotta activate it before the show starts
