    Most signs point to Netflix continuing to simply ignore WebOS! Tho I have seen no 'official' word from Netflix, conversations with support (and what do they really know, LoL!) are all negative. And, given the recent flaky nature of Netflix pronouncements, I wouldn't put a wooden nickle on anything they say anyway...one way or the other!

    If you are a Touchpad owner and really need to view Netflix on your tablet, there is a way, but you need to be on your home network to do it. A new Remote Desktop app called Splashtop (Paid app in HP Catalog) will let you connect to your PC so you see/control your PC live from your TP. Simply start whatever Netflix stream you want on your PC, then connect to the PC with Splashtop. It works! But it is a kludge and of course will not work while you are on the road unless you can find a way to connect from OUTSIDE your home LAN. Again, a kludge!

    Netflix, give us a WebOS app!! B) :D

    Even if every single Touchpad owner were a Netflix subscriber there still wouldn't be enough of you to justify the expense of developing a webOS app.

    It's easy to ignore a market that simply doesn't exist and never will.

    I'm thinking about getting a Touchpad, and this is not what I was hoping to see... I'm sure you guys have tried, but can you view it through the browser? What about Amazon Instant Streaming, will that work?
