Since the PlayBook launched we have been hearing users asking for Netflix on BlackBerry. There has been very little movement on that front for ages though people have had some success porting it to the Android player recently. This week AllThingsD is reporting that Netflix has confirmed that “We have no current plans for a BlackBerry app.” Who knows what that would mean in the future but that definitely means no luck at launch.
Here is what BlackBerry had to say about the news:
“We’re committed to bringing top titles from around the globe to BlackBerry 10 customers,” BlackBerry spokesman Alex Kinsella told AllThingsD. “At this time, it’s in Netflix’s court to join the excitement around BlackBerry 10 — we hope they choose to bring a BlackBerry 10 experience to their customers. We’d love to have them.”
Personally I don’t use Netflix at all so this makes no difference to me but I know some people who are die hard Netflix users.
