This has always been slightly controversial among the Android fanboys and simple users alike: “Where the heck is the Netflix app on my Android phone?”. Well, according to Netflix, it’ll appear on “select Android devices,” and the reasons being for the long delay and all is that, “The hurdle has been the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android.” That makes sense, doesn’t it? It’s actually a fact that Windows Phone 7 and iOS have baked-in DRM solutions, while Android has never heard such a thing.
This also means that when I write about the specs of a new Android phone, Netlifx will have to be included, because it’s a “featured feature”. And that’s more work. Darn you, DRM. Via: The Netflix Blog
