“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.View Article Source »
