Netflix Now On Android, Updates iOS App To Support Subtitles
Today, Netflix announced
the availability of an official Netflix app for the Android platform. The app is available via Android Market. However, because of the nature of Android, not all Android phones have the streaming playback capabilities which is required to run the Netflix app.
The Market download will initially be available only on select phones that currently have the requisite playback support. We expect to quickly add to the number of phones that can download from Android Market as we work with ecosystem partners to expand playback support.
Netflix has also updated the Netflix app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to give users the ability to view subtitles on subtitle-supported content.
The Netflix app allows subscribers of the Netflix streaming service to watch movies and TV shows on their smartphones and other mobile devices.
