    I remember seeing a statement from Netflix a year or so ago somewhere around the time that they released the iPhone app where they said that they were dedicated to making an app for all mobile operating systems and they did specifically mention WebOS at that time. The time frame was before the app for MS and Android came out... wish I could find the link.

    netflix why use silverlight, why not have also a HTML-5 solution?
    If this helped you hit thanks.

    Because HTML5's DRM is terrible compared to flash/silverlight.

    There is this small matter of Jon Ruby on Amazon's board. Its a three way fight between Netflix, Amazon and Apple. With Netflix dominating movies, Apple songs and Amazon in between.

    The xfinity tv website works great on the touchpad.

    As for Netflix, the ceo is on MS's board.
    Apps: MyQ for Netflix (Phone/TouchPad), Giantbomb (Phone), Excavate (Reddit/Digg clients for TouchPad)

    The one thing I think folks need to keep in mind is these apps are not going to just pop up over night. Developers, and business like Netflix are going to take some time, they are not just going to hire or direct a team to go hot and heavy in TouchPad development. Google wrote many of the apps for Android so they came quicker. It is going to take some time with HP. This is a new product, new OS, they are going to watch the development flow before just jumping in. Frustrating yes, but I'm afraid that is how it will be with many popular apps. Patience is not easy in this instant world of tech.

    Thanks for the tip on Xfinity! I didn't realize it was working. Now if only I could listen to voicemail!

    Netflix > Playon. (until there's an app or a silverlight implementation.)

    I think most companies have had plenty of time to make a touchpad app. maybe a netflix one is a bit more involved but like those other companies and webproperties and even the ones that already have basic webos apps have had plenty of time. They've known about it for a long time. HP's owned the company for long enough to get out and get many companies on board.

    no, only a few android devices have netflix because, according to netflix, the graphics drivers are device-specific so they have to be written for each individual device, instead of just creating a generic driver for netflix for all froyo devices.

    What are the odds that netflix will write the necessary code for the touchpad? or the pre3?

    well this is honestly what will aid in my decision. Originally I wanted one, then got an ipad, then didn't want to leave the ipad due to its apps... But I've noticed that 75% of ipad apps (atleast on my ipad 1) crash all the time... And im so so so sick of it. The UI on webos is so much better but has less apps and lacks some small features of ios Id miss... But if the touchpad can run apps without crashing and closing them down all the time... And they do come up with Netflix (key app i won't give up) id be welling to take a dive and hope for the best. Might even get back into the development of the apps i was planning before i started loosing faith.

    Point blank, Netflix is a must

    That's not the reason at all.
