Netflix Removes Device Check, Should Work on Most Android Devices (Updated)

We just threw up a post about the latest Netflix update which brought support to the original DROID, but what we failed to originally realize is that the update removed the device check which means in theory, that it should be able to work on all phones.  Well, guess what?  I loaded it up on my DROIDX2 (which is “not” supported) and it installed just fine and is now streaming a video.  I’m loading it up on other devices too, but wanted to make sure you all knew.  Feel free to grab it below and install – let us know how it goes!


Download:  Netflix.apk

*Note – this is not a hacked version.  This is 100% the market version.

Update:  Works on Thunderbolt (rooted 2.3), DROIDX2, DROIDX (2.3), and Xperia PLAY.

Update 2:  No XOOM support though.

Update 3:  Looks like it’s pretty hit or miss.  Definitely sounding like it’s not working on stock Thunderbolt which is a damn shame.

Cheers Brandon!

  • Mike49mr

    Netflix on thunderbolt WORKS. Just wait for the update. (it took mine like 5 minutes before it realized there was an update)

    Netflix moved their stuff to new servers today (7-17-11) after the move however, they nerfed the droid X2s from being able to connect. Does anyone have a work around for this?

    • Marvin Bermudez

      Same here, Droid X Gunerbread. Service unavailable,

  • Fastfreddie831

    No netflix or hbo go for my Asus transformer

  • this worked on my out of the box unhacked huawai m835.  Can I say I love you guys yet???  Yes…  Yes I can.

    I might add here it would NOT allow me to download the app through all the regular ways AND I got advanced app kiler to help the stream be less choppy. Works like a charm. It asks for the update, but it would not update, so i cancel it everytime i open it. i have been stressing over this for two days as the man who sold me the phone insisted netflix would work on it before I bought it. Buyer beware.

    Oh and this is on 2.2 not 2.3

  • Hooblah

    Thanks sooo much, works great!

  • Ddrbarf

    Ugh how hard is it to make this shit work on all devices.

  • Slayertxp

    I’m running on stock Verizon Droid X2 firmware. I bought the phone 5 hours ago from a Verizon store and this APK is working perfectly. It continues to ask me if I want to upgrade but I’m assuming it may break the app or fail the upgrade if I try. So its a minor inconvenience as long as I can watch movies until they fix this officially.

    Thank you for this file! It works great.
