New Netflix Version 1.3 Works On Honeycomb Tablets, Download It Here

Great news for all of the Honeycomb tablets out there wishing they could have Netflix. Today Netflix updated their application to allow support for additional devices, and we sure didn’t expect support for tablets. We have confirmation of it working on ASUS Transformer (some), Motorola XOOM, and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Could this be because Lenovo has just announced Netflix support on their new line of tablet devices? Download and install as you would any other apk.

Download: Netflix.apk

Cheers 0mie!

    I can’t get this to work on the Acer Iconia Tab

  • Andrew Davis

    Why do so many people have Netflix?  I used to years ago but now live off of torrents, my WD Live Media Streamer, and cable DVR.

      Some people like to do things legally.

      …and that’s not a bash on torrents, as I sure do love them.

  • Tkrahling

    Works on the gtab running a hc rom also

  • Dpu328

    Yeah it works! Just when I was wondering what to do with my xoom

    • Use it as a boat anchor.

    • Jak_341

      Lots of things to use the Xoom for…

      1) Coaster
      2) Dinner tray
      3) Frisbee
      4) Paver for your sidewalk
      5) Shooting target

      And of course, the aforementioned boat anchor.

      • Or as a SD Card reader, oh never mind….

  • Doesn’t work on my non-rooted 3G Xoom, “Error, Please make sure your device has network connectivity and teh data and time settings are accurate.” after several seconds. 

    • Granted

      I’m pretty sure it didn’t produce net-nerd speech when it told you that.

    • Gqsquare

      I get the same error with the same build. Any fix?

    • GQSquare

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com

  • Mystikalrush

    Doesnt work on A500, not rooted, maybe need some more extensive testing if this is a rooted only working version. if thats the case im more than happy to root my a500.

  • Someone has a hard on for Netflix.

    Weird.. on my stock Xoom it installs and looks like it’s working, but after it buffers it just sits there on a black screen.

  • PyroHoltz

    Someone likes the movie, “The Fighter”   😉

  • Are you sure this works on the Transformer? Prior to the 1.3 update going live, I was able to install from the Market on my tablet, and was able to log in, but any attempt to play gave me error 12001 (“could not reach the Netflix service”). Now that 1.3 is on the Market, it says it’s no longer compatible.

    Even using the APK linked here gets me the same issue (logs in, but can’t play).

  • Knightcrusader

    Well, time to let my GTablet go. This was the only thing it could do that my Transformer could not. Can’t wait to try it later tonight.

  • Booboolala2000

    Finally, gotta grab this one.

    Sweet! too bad i’m quitting them in Sept cause they r raising my plan pricing 25% 

  • Mr. Joshua

    I suggest that Droid-life put together a tablet comparison post soon. There are a lot out there and seems like more every day.

    • Anonymous

      Why? They all run Tegra 2.

      • Jeremy Gentry

        the processor isn’t the only reason to buy….you also have speaker/sound quality display/brightness and overall look and feel of the product.

        • roadcarver

          Netflix doesn’t seem to work on Xooms Wi-Fi Canadian models that have been unlocked and upgraded to 3.1 and 3.2.  However a user reports that a stock 3.0.1 firmware works with the Netflix app released yesterday. 

        • Dwizzler1

          this has been working great on my ipad. =====iwin

            This is what you become when you get a lot of wedgies in school.

          • ahab

            hows the flash working on that thing?

          • Woolebugr

            I didn’t see your response to Dwizzler until I had responded also. Funny, we were thinking the exact thing. I just had to return the iPad I bought for my wife today because it didn’t support Flash.

          • allhailprince.info

            TROLOL ! Netflix like’s to fragment because they can. Amazon’s movie service works fine, I have already switched. 2 months later amazon’s library is growing to include a LOT of titles. So with Netflix NEVER working on Android until it took major marketshare, and never working on desktop linux (even though it is possible – Mac OS – darwin linux, android – google linux fork, roku – linux powered with a DRM chip to make it work). Netflix bows to the entertainment industry and not its customers. Theoretically it should be compatible with every device (with a good enough processor), this fragmentation is calculated and purposeful. If they supported every device, no one that already owned one would be in a hurry to buy another one. Acer doesn’t care that you got screwed or they would have pitched a bitch about this ( still inside my 14 day return for the Acer, Guess what Im gonna do?) – sorry Acer. I guess I am going with a Samsung. 

          • Woolebugr

            Maybe so, but how’s that Flash working out on your iPad?

          • The Motion City Sound

            Flash videos have been working great on my xoom and I can find more shows on project free TV than Netflix offers. Lets not forget I can torrent whatever I can’t stream directly on my xoom. Also don’t forget about all my emulators, full HDMI mirroring and ps3 controllers.. enjoy your ipad

    I told you guys it would be available today, but who listens to me? 😉

    • T Hall

      Thanks Omie!

    • I listen! 😛

    • palomosan

      Too bad it doesn’t work on my stock Transformer, it might be for rooted Transformers.

      • Eddie Sprouse

        Not working on my transformer either. I had the market version and it said there was and update today, but it could not find the app and it is no longer showing in the market.  I uninstalled and tried the APK it would go to my account but not play any video.

        • Anonymous

          Same problem here with the Transformer.  What is so freaking difficult for Netflix to make this work?  A 10.1″ tablet is one of the most common sizes.  If they can make it work for the OG Droid, then dog gone it, make it work on the latest tablets!!!!

          • Marksha6568

            Frustrating i can watch netflix on my droid x but not my transformer

    Does it stream in Hd??

    • Anonymous

      It looks like it is the same quality stream as my phone, so in otherwords, it’s blurry/pixelated compared to an HD stream, but if you have it a foot or so away from your face (which you will do while watching it) It’s really not that bad.

      • watching The Last Air-Bender and the quality is good enough quality. Yes it started pixelated but seems to be better after the first minute or so. I haven’t tried it over 3g yet, but my guess is that it will have the same quality.

  • caseyisajim

    I can now die happy.

  • Mikeakrish

    Didnt work on my transformer?

    • Are you stock or rooted?

      • TheDroidAbides

        Streaming isn’t working on my stock Transformer either.

    • Doesn’t seem to work on my Transformer either. Get the same “can’t reach the Netflix service” error…

    • palomosan

      On mine neither, this sucks.

    • would be nice to know each of you all’s setups. are you on the newest update, custom rom, stock rooted or not, etc. would help with comparison and seeing what works and doesn’t.

  • If they added true support for these devices, why can’t we get it from the market officially?

    hmm I wonder if it will work on my Elocity A7 (doubtful)
