This news is somewhat on the gray area. Netflix will be start streaming on Android devices but on just selected units. What do you think?

Year 2011 will be a good start for something new. As with users, will stream on you smartphones starting next year. No need to envy your friends friends who use WP7 or iPhone mobiles. Unfortunately, the is limited to a few OS.

Netflix’s product development head, Greg Peters, reinstated in his blog yesterday that “the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android” was the one thing which stops the expansion of the platform to other Android devices.

“We are eager to launch on these devices and are disappointed that we haven’t been able to do so already,” he also wrote.

Since there’s no solution yet, Netflix works now with individual hardware manufacturers to the supported devices. First batch of the decives will be getting the app by 2011. But Peters said the company is already working on a platform-wide solution but no final words about the release date.

Let’s wait and see to where this project goes.
