Netflix Streams on Selected Androids Only

Written on November 15, 2010 by B Waldorf

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 Android users, Netflix will stream on you smartphones starting next year. No need to envy your friends friends who use WP7 or iPhone mobiles. Unfortunately, the app is limited to a few Android 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.

Our all-time favorite from Sesame Street, Elmo, recently uploaded a video interview on YouTube. This cuddly and cute character apparently became a hit this weekend with more than 3.5 million views.

Sesame Street, a popular kiddie program, recently used the Google Moderator to sort out questions for Elmo’s fans then uploaded it on YouTube. It is a 20-minute interview that is both cute and heartwarming. The video has accumulated more than 3.5 million views over the weekend.

Questions are raised by both kids and kids at heart. Some of the questions raised were, “What’s your favorite food?”; “How do you actually get to Sesame Street?”; “How do you keep from getting sad when your daddy is away?”

Gathering questions from online fans and answering these questions on web videos is a habit nowadays. Just like the Old Spice Guy campaign taking it to the next level as TV host Conan O’Brien has jumped on a bandwagon.

See the video after the skip.
