Netflix's Greg Peters confirms that a Netflix Android app will ship next year, but due to a lack of a platform-level DRM solution it'll only be available at first on select handsets.
We live to get Netflix on new devices, so the current lack of an Android-generic approach to quickly get to all Android devices is frustrating. But I’m happy to announce we’ll launch select Android devices that will instantly stream from Netflix early next year. We will also continue to work with the Android community, handset manufacturers, carriers, and other service providers to develop a standard, platform-wide solution that allows content providers to deliver their services to all Android-based devices. I’ll keep you updated on our progress.
I've been wondering what the holdup was -- they've been so quick to support new devices like the iPad and Apple TV.
