Now Netflix is heading to Android phones to provide streaming media. Will you install this application on your phone?
Netflix Streaming Is Coming to Your Android Phone [APP]
Netflix is working on a streaming video application for smartphones running Google's Android operating system, a Netflix employee and online job listing have each confirmed.
Netflix has posted two job listings on its website so far this summer, both seeking Android () developers. The current listing is titled “Android Video Playback Expert,” and begins, “Netflix is looking for a great engineer to help us build Instant Streaming client implementations on Android devices.”
Netflix is looking for someone with at least 10 years of development experience, who has already implemented video playback in an Android application. It also names two notable pluses: experience with digital rights management (DRM) and “Experience () with other mobile application platforms (e.g. iPhone/iPad).” The second of those would seem to imply that Netflix will use its previous work creating Watch Instantly streaming apps for the iPad and iPhone () as a basis for the Android app.
