    Netflix on thrive?

    I just got the 16g thrive today. How do I watch Netflix on my tablet?

    UPDATE: 10/19/2011 - by epakrat75


    I'm still stock (not rooted). If you can't find the NetFlix app through the Market app on your Thrive, you can make it remotely install from market.android.com (after signing in to the same gmail address associated with my Thrive) by searching for it and clicking Install. If it already says, "Installed" click it anyway since you'll be allowed to install on another device. The market said it was compatible with all my devices and...

    IT WORKS!!!

    Sadly, you don't. There's no compatible Netflix app, yet.

    Maybe you could go on the website, (change your user_agent as Chrome or some desktop browser), and watch it since it's Flash Compatible...

    There were a few quick hacks - somewhere in teh apk it asks "are you a droid, galaxy, etc" where you can add an ID string.

    I suspect it would work but I also assume Netflix will be available on the Thrive - it would be strange for it not to be.

    I think, and hope that this is just a matter of days, maybe weeks.

    They removed device check in the new versions. The app works for everything but streaming on all Honeycomb devices. Hopefully, there will be an update to address this soon.

    They changed it with 1.2.2. Now it doesn't refuse to run if it's not on a supported device.
