    I put in a call requesting a Netflix app about a week ago, and the person who answered the phone was very friendly and on the spot created a request and forwarded it to the appropriate person/department. It can't hurt, call em up, they are very friendly!

    I'm no fan of smug, pat, smarmy answers like this. If this were Reddit, I'd have down-voted the comment. People have tablets for convenience, not so they can use some cumbersome workaround. Hence the request for the app.

    situation: travelling with your laptop packed and want to see netflix movies or when your laptop breaks and you need to watch a movie coz your gf is bored and does not like the broken apps on your Touchpad?
    Forward the proper ports and you can access your home PC (tower) anywhere.. via splashtop. I can stream any media including a ton of .iso's I have loaded on a 2tb hdd. Open .iso with dvdfab virual drive and play in the media player.. simple. Obviously streaming netflix and live TV or recorded TV is great as well No need for a notebook anywhere, just install splastop on your pc (home, friends, parents etc) and you are golden.

    Enough with the Splashtop already!

    I don't leave my PC's running 24/7 and don't need to watch Netflix on my TP that badly. Until its click an app simple, forget it.

    Again, thanks but no thanks...

    I have splashtop, but I don't leave my PC on when I'm traveling. I can watch Crackle movies on my touchpad, but it would be nice to be able to stream Netflix also. We were on the road for a long weekend a couple of weeks ago, and since we travelled on Thursday, we missed that day's Daily Show, so we streamed it on my touchpad Friday evening in the hotel. That was great. I want to do the same with Netflix. Sure, I do plan to install Android when it comes out of Alpha, but in the meantime...

    I posted this in another thread concerning NetFlix. I am reposting it here (since I finally found this thread again):

    I would like to have the ability to directly (not through another computer/device) view NetFlix on the TouchPad. A Silverlight plugin for the browser would be ideal, but the chance of that happening is slim to none, so a dedicated app is needed.

    I think there is another thread about calling NetFlix customer support and putting pressure on them. I couldn't find it so I will post my comments here. Does anyone have a valid email to NetFlix? I don't want to sit on the phone with some low level employee that will be gracious with me, but probably won't forward my call and can't do anything from their end to fix this issue. I figure blowing up their inbox might get us some @$mn support!

    I'm tired of paying NetFlix every month and I can't access it from my primary media device (my TouchPad). I have NetFlix on my PlayStation 3, but my family only fires it up occasionally on the weekends. The other 5 days of the week, we are all on our tablets (2 TouchPads and 1 Archos 70) in separate rooms playing games or watching videos. Only the Archos 70, which belongs to my daughter, has the ability to view NetFlix videos. She doesn't pay the bills.

    I don't understand why NetFlix hasn't developed an app for the TouchPad yet. Please don't give me that dead OS/device crap. There are close to 1 million TouchPads in users hands. That's about 4 percent of NetFlix' total user base number and greater than the number of users NetFlix lost with their price gouging stunt. There is no financial lost for NetFlix by developing a TouchPad or webOS app. They will also make a million people happy. I don't want to boot into CM7 (I uninstalled it anyway) or any of the other work-arounds just to watch a NetFlix video. I want a @$mn app or I will rethink paying them my hard earned money!


    Edit: The reason for this rant is the fact that the $7.99 payment for NetFlix and the $3 payment for LastFM cleared my account yesterday. I get more bang for my buck with LastFM since I can use it on virtually all of my devices. I pay twice as much for NetFlix and it is nowhere near as flexible.

    k4ever I have called netflix myself several times requesting. I finally called and canceled my service the other day and left a message w/ the retention specialist that if they wanted my business back, I'm ready and will come back when I can get a netflix app for my touchpad. This is now my primary media device as well, so if they don't want to spend the money on myself and all the other tp users out there I'm going to hit it where it hurts.. one less netflix customer. I'll just use the extra bucks for a few extra digital downloads off amazon.. streaming off their web site works great.

    Want to make a stronger point.. cancel your service too. Most of the good movies are not available streaming so other than to watch old tv ep's it's become rather worthless anyway. I'd still pay for it, but not until I can get it on my TP.

    10 or even 50 people cancelling their Netflix accounts over this still doesn't make up for the salary they'd have to pay for a team to create a dedicated Netflix version. Cross-referencing Glassdoor's salaries for the company, Netflix doesn't even lose the equivalent of one developer's salary for a day and a half at 50 cancellations. I've done the budgeting for these sorts of projects before, and 10-50 cancellations are but an atom of a drop in the bucket; it's nothing to them. Might as well stand around dancing in place or get a cup of coffee, because it's about as productive.

    Get 1,000--preferably far more--organized to cancel and maybe you'll get an ear from them. Unless you can organize those sorts of numbers, you're just cutting off your nose to spite your face by cancelling over the lack of a Netflix app. Go big, or go home.

    Keep in mind it took 800,000 cancellations to get Netflix to reverse its plans to split because it hurt their stock price, and as a result their market capitalization and perception in the market. And they still didn't reunify the package pricing between their DVD/BD and Streaming verticals.

    Just have to say I was totally in this for the petition idea before, but now that Arrested Development is going to be on Netflix! I will do just about anything for this to happen

    Most of the above is self inflicted.

    Just finished my call with Netflix and requested a Netflix app and person on the phone was extremely receptive to the idea and told me he would hand deliver the request to the proper department for me . We must remember they just took a giant financial loss with their price restructuring announcement . It cost them a lot of subscriptions and they might like to make up some of that financial loss !!! Just Saying !!!
    Have you ever worked in customer support? I'm currently working in customer support and the only place where this suggestion will be forwarded is his closest workmates in a joke It's really unlikely that they would make an app for device no longer supported by HP.

    This is a joke right? Please tell us your kidding.

    Yeah. Shouldn't have paid for a service that did not honor all of its customers, regardless of the device they use.

    I have a dual boot system with Cyanogenmod 7 Android Alpha. It has a great app for Netflix.

    As a top contributor to the HP Consumer Support Forums, HP provides me access to the Tochpad at no charge so I may better respond to the questions raised on the Forum.

    I think that's probably right.
