    Amazon is only 79 dollars a year. Not that expensive. I personally am going to be switching to that from Netflix. I'm a long time Netflix user and I just bought a large portion of Netflix stock (right before it tanked, bad decision) but I am still going to make the switch. I will say that all the Starz Play movies sucked though, so they aren't losing much. It was really the only new content they had however.

    P.S. - Amazon Prime is the name of the service, it comes with free 2 day shipping on all orders too. It's a great deal.

    Yep. And I was waiting for someone to get the app up just to avoid the nagging message. Thanks.

    Need help on the installation process.

    I believe I am fully rooted. Cannot locate CWM ap icon but when I reboot and click middle box it shows I have it.

    My main question is, do I add all the files to SD card and load from there on thrive? Or is there another way? And is the patch the only thing I need?

    Thanks for the clarification!

    When searching how to use cwm it brings back error.

    I just need help on installing netflix to my thrive. I used the dalnet root process and files if that means anything. And then everything else I got from this thread.

    I have loaded the files on a SD card and the apk on a flashdrive, just need to know how to go about doing this.

    The apk just open and itwill ask if u want to install netflix

    The file off the top of my head I am unsure of where it goes. Think its /system/lib. (replacing the one that's currently there)

    To use cwm: How To Install Clockwork Mod on Your Toshiba Thrive via Fastboot
    You wont be installing cwm but it tells you how to get to cwm

    My sig has a zip that u drop in ur sdcars and install via cwm and its done

    I am new here just now and just bought my 32gb Thrive, and I will be honest 51 years old, but I really assumed it would work on NetFlix, can someone tell me why in the blazes does it not out of the box, that seems really way out of line..I also heard skype does not work..while reading..I love it, but now I can still take it back at least..just plain weird..

    NETFlix

    I just bought 2 thrives one for me and one for my wife, then I just found out it does not stream NetFlix, when I natuarlly assumed it did, why not? I have no idea new to tablets and thought I picked a top 4 Tab..very disappointing if it does not..

    There are workarounds for Netflix. Do a search on the forum for Netflix and see if you want to run the fixes. It is not hard and very well explained.

    The reason it does not stream Netflix out of the box is because netflix hasn't updated their system to allow the thrive access. Up until not too long ago, you couldn't stream netflix on android, but they have updated to be able to stream in the majority of phones and have started with the android tablets. The thrive will eventually be supported, but in the mean time you could root the tablet and download the netflix app, its actually pretty simple with the step by step video that someone put up in these forums. As far as skype is concerned if i'm not mistaken the latest update to skype actually allows you to use video, you just have to click the option in the settings.
