One of the most requested apps for the PlayBook has been Netflix. Well for now Flix is here to help. Flix uses your PC and PlayBook to help stream Netflix on your PlayBook. Due to the workings of Flix, there are some current limitations like PC and PlayBook must be on a shared WiFi connection. Continue to see the full requirements, and how to get your own copy.
- Your BlackBerry PlayBook must be on the same Wi-Fi network as your computer.
- Flix requires approximately 5 Mbps transfer speed between your PC and BlackBerry PlayBook.
- When you are watching a Netflix movie on your BlackBerry PlayBook, the computer’s audio is redirected to your BlackBerry PlayBook.
- Windows PC only. (Mac is not supported)
- There are no player controls such as pause or rewind on the BlackBerry PlayBook at this time. I hope to improve this.
Now remember, this app has no affiliation with Netflix, but is a good alternative when in a applicable area. You can get your copy in AppWorld for $4.99.
