Download and Install Netflix App on any Android Phone

Technology     30 May 2011     51 Comments

The official Netflix app for Android smartphones was out a few days back. But the bad thing was that it was incompatible for most of the phones. Only some of the Android handsets like Nexus S, Nexus One, G2, HTC Evo 4G and HTC Incredible are compatible with the initial version of this app.

So, if you own any of the above listed devices, it’s good for you but what if your mobile set doesn’t have support for this app. There’s nothing to panic now as the hackers at XDA have successfully modified this app and their modified version lets you install it on any Android Smartphone.

Your phone must be rooted or stock one for this apk file to work.

Installing Netflix App on Android Mobiles

1. Download the Netflix Apk file from below xda link, which is at end of post. You can download netflix-devicecheck-disabled.apk as it has Device Check Disabled. Comment below if you are unable to download. We will email it to you.

2. Connect your mobile phone with your pc via a USB cable.

3. Mound the SD card as disk drive.

4. Copy the apk file to SD card root.

5. Download any File Manager, we recommend Astro File Manager and install it on your device.

6. Launch the File Manager.

7. Tap on SD card.

8. Navigate to the apk file that you downloaded.

9. Tap on this apk and install it.

10. After installation is complete, exit the file manager.

11. Launch Netflix app from the home screen.

12. If you see that the app is closing forcefully or you are facing crashing after login, go to Step1 and download netflix-mod-2.apk . After download, follow the above full steps again from Step2 onwards.

    Works great on NON-rooted HTC Sensation. I had Astro file manager installed. Used just regular Windows XP explorer file folders to drag drop file to USB mounted android.

    Then used Astro to install. It did require me to change my HTC settings to allow install of non-market apps.

    I also got the pop up about a newer version when I started the Netflix app but just ignored it.

    Watching a movie inside of 2 minutes of seeing this post!

    Netflix sucks for not providing this to its paying member so you guys are extra GREAT!
