Hacked Netflix on Android No Longer Working? Feel Free to Try the Real Market Version

The hacked Netflix app that was floating around a couple of weeks ago seems to have been shut down for good last night, so we thought this was a good time to remind everyone that you no longer need it on most phones.  We posted up the market version last Thursday for everyone to try because Netflix removed the device check, leaving it wide open to more than they list in the market.  That’s right, the stock DROIDX2 pictured above is running the untouched market version of the app and is not listed as a compatible device.  We’re pretty sure it still won’t work on the Thunderbolt, but people are having a fair amount of luck on other phones.

You can download it here. [mirror] [mirror]

Cheers @davekover for the reminder!

    the app is awesome and this is the only working download I could find anywhere.
    however it has started saying that an update is available every time I try to stream a video, but the link doesn’t work, so now I can’t stream.

    IS THERE AN UPDATE AVAILABLE TO THIS APP?

      also tried the workaround posted by mecevans, that didn’t work either.

    works great on my rooted cdma htc desire, and it downloaded the latest update for netflix!  Make sure to edit you build.prop system file first!  Here is the link to the netflix app —> http://www.mediafire.com/?657c280vt7g98bu

    Wow! This works great on my X2, but everytime I change screens I get asked to update to the newest version, which then can’t be found for my device.
    It’s a mild annoyance, especially when compared to the major annoyance of needing a work-around for this app.
    Thanks for posting.

    Does this play on the evo? After the update, it disappeared from the market and the official app won’t stream.

    June 12, still won’t stream on Inspire.  WTF.  Got my hopes up because I was no longer being told to try an update my app version in the Market.  I can open the app, navigate through my queue and selections but when I try to watch instantly, the player flashes on for about 2 seconds then shuts down and goes back to the home screen.  So I guess the Inspire is not “most” phones. Again, W-T-F????

    Isn’t really working on my Samsung Infuse.  I downloaded the Netflix apk from above, and then downloaded the apkinstaller app to my phone.  Copied the netflix file to my sd card, and used the installer.  The Netflix app opened up fine, asked for my login.  I typed the wrong password at first (forgot I changed it so my gf could use it) and it told me so.  Typed the correct password, Netflix then crashed.  Tried a couple more times, and it keeps crashing after I enter my password everytime.

    (disclaimer: this is my first time on this website, and I just got my phone yesterday, which is my first android phone.  Sorry for any noobness.)
