Download: Netflix for the DROIDX

Weren’t happy with news that Netflix was old made available to a handful of devices?  What if I were to tell you that it also works on the DROIDX running Gingerbread?  Download it below.  And I have a feeling that it’ll work on the DROID2 as well, but cannot test it at this time.  Feel free to let us know in the comments though!

Download:  Netflix.apk

*Note 1 – My DX is running Gingerbread.

*Note 2 – Did not work on my Thunderbolt, XOOM or Samsung Tab 10.1.

*Note 3 – We’re hearing that it definitely works on the DROID2 running Gingerbread, plus the original DROID running a variety of ROMs.

    My DROID x kept telling me to download the Netflix update, couldn’t get it to do an update. Found an update for the system from Verizon. Updated the system to 4.5.596.MB810.Verizon. en.US. My DROID x shows it is running Android version 2.3.3 now, was running 2.2. After updating the system, I was finally able to download the Netflix update. Install didn’t work correctly the 1st time. Uninstalled Netflix and then re-installed it. Works perfectly. Audio and video streaming simultaneously insync. Good luck!

    • Moguai

      Google “com.netflix.mediaclient-2.apk” uninstall netflix app then install the new file.

  • Tom

    I was able to install using the “com.netflis.mediaclient-2.apk” but now when i go to watch a movie it says ” the Netflix service is not available on your device. Is anyone else having this problem

    • Tom

      Fixed my own problem there is com.netflix.mediaclient-3.apk out now that worked

    • Moguai

      The  com.netflix.mediaclient-3.apk is actually the same file as the -2 I checked the MD3 and it shows it as the same at least the -3 that I downloaded.

  • Moguai

    Google and download this netflix .apk “com.netflix.mediaclient-2.apk” and remember to uninstall any other netflix app prior to installing this one.

    It works for me.

  • Ttas

    i installed th OTA GB update for DX yesterday . i install the netflix app. when i launched it said there was a update available .. and it works .. 
    just finished watching Star trek 

  • guest

    I downloaded the netflix app and installed on my Droid X running GB 596.  Upon start up of the the netflix app, it says there’s an update and you must update before running.  When I click ok to update, it can’t find it in the market.  So the bottom line is that is does not work on the Droid X running GB 596 (at least this version of the netflix app doesn’t, because it is apparently out of date).

  • Moguai

    Netflix has released thier own no device check version of the .apk. just Google  “com.netflix.mediaclient-2.apk”

    Works on my Droid X with Gingerbread .596

  • Pastorscottking

    Nothing here…stock DX with new GB update….netflix app simply says new update for application is found you must update to use this app….then it comes up application can’t be found

  • Randy

    Anyone find a update yet???
