The long-awaited Netflix app for Android is finally available. Unfortunately, all Android users won’t be able to take advantage of the app. You see, as of right now, the app will only run on the following five phones: HTC Incredible with Android 2.2, HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3, HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2, HTC G2 with Android 2.2, and the Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3.
For users with one of these compatible phones however, you should be able to download the app from the Android Market right away. Once installed, the app is designed to provide similar functionality as the iOS version of the app. For example, with the app you can finish watching a movie or show where you left on your TV or computer.
Here’s a look at the full description of the app from the Android Market:
Get Netflix on your Android phone. Just download this free app and you can instantly watch TV shows & movies streaming from Netflix.
Word on the street says the Netflix app won’t run on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets. Netflix says it is in the process of “aggressively qualifying phones” however so with any luck, devices such as the Tab and other hot smartphones could get the Netflix app in the future.
