Android featured on Netflix corporate Blog

Recently In a post on the official Netflix blog, it was revealed that Netflix is headed to select Android devices now. The article acknowledged that the company is desperate to bring Netflix to Android, but that recent mobile platform and security issues have been holding them back until recently.


"We are eager to launch on these devices and are disappointed that we haven’t been able to do so already. The hurdle has been the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android. The same security issues that have led to piracy concerns on the Android platform have made it difficult for us to secure a common Digital Rights Management (DRM) system on these devices."

The good news for Android lovers is that it seems that Netflix has been able to achieve a secure solution on some more recent Android devices, although we do not know which ones at the moment. The article hints that they will continue to work with developers and manufacturers to bring a secure and modern Netflix movie experience to as many Android devices as possible. DroidNinja will report on any news regarding which devices may be included in this limited release of Netflix on Android, so stay tuned.
