Netflix is hoping to ride on Android’s coattails by bringing an app for the movie-streaming and rental service to the Google mobile platform. The company is actively hiring Android developers, according to one Netflix employee speaking to Reddit.
I just know we’re actively hiring Android devs. I wish I knew more about a timeframe for you. Good things come to those who wait. Netflix is essentially a tech company and with the way Android is blowing up it would be stupid of us to ignore that.
Hopefully a Netflix app is forthcoming. Netflix is already on the iPad and the company has announced plans to bring the app to iOS 4 on the iPhone by the end of summer at WWDC, where Steve Jobs unveiled Apple’s latest smartphone.
