Why Netflix isn’t on Android yet

I’ve been drooling for Netflix to finally come out for Android. Today I found out why it’s not out yet. I guess Netflix is concerned with how “open” the Android platform is. They are now working with different solutions based on each of the different handset manufacturers. Which means, when it DOES come out, there will be a different version for each different Android phone, which, in turn, means it will take much longer to come out than expected, depending on which manufacturer they release it for in what order. Sounds pretty messy, and could hurt Netflix in the long run. I hope not though, we’re enjoying their services on every OTHER platform we have. Here’s the article.
