Although Netflix hasn’t made any announcements yet, the Netflix app for Android has been spotted on LG’s Revolution smartphone, one of ten devices announced by Verizon at CES 2011. LG Revolution has a large, 4.3 inch screen, which would be good for watching films on.
A Netflix app is already available at the Apple App Store and Microsoft App Marketplace, so Android users will be happy to know that Netflix runs fast and smooth on Android; people have said it works better than home broadband. Because Android was not a closed system, Netflix earlier found it hard to ensure that its content would be secure. Now the video rental service has decided to work closely with device manufacturers to get the app out in the Android market.
In a similar announcement, video service Hulu too decided to bring its Hulu Plus services to Android 2.2 Froyo. Hulu videos didn’t work on mobile browsers earlier.
