Well, this is certainly promising news! According to this official Netlifx job posting they’re looking for:
“a great engineer to help us build Instant Streaming client implementations on Android devices.”
Oh yes, you read it correctly, we have official word that Netflix will be coming to an Android device near you.
I’m an avid Netflix user and use their Watch Instantly service at least a few times a week on the Xbox 360 – in fact, their service was more or less single handedly responsible for my decision to cancel cable television. Between their massive library of great (and sometimes not so great) movies and TV shows available for streaming, and the occasional torrent (don’t tell anyone!), there’s really no need to continue feeding the old media beast.
