RIM has spent millions trying (successfully) to win over developers.. they certainly aren't turning away and major players.

Netflix Customer Support Answer Regarding BB10
ahah, thats bull****. rim obviously wants netflix. this leads me to believe that netflix is a big name coming out on launch and they've been told to say this to keep that as one of the real shockers for launch.
could be wrong but to say bb doesnt want netflix when all theyve done the past year is hunt down all the big name apps. unless of course bb is planning to do their own form of netflix for blackberry customers. almost like a bbm service but tv shows and movies? thats extemely unlikely so ill say it again. its bull**** that rim doesnt want netflix. this is one of the things theyre saving for launch.

I agree its BS. I did mention in my chat with her about RIM (Alec Saunders) saying they would help develop for Netflix if they could. I did have the same thought though that BB might provide their own Netflix like service. Wouldn't that be interesting? I think they'd have a hard time inking the deals with the networks though. As for Jan 30th - I really don't think Netflix will be in the list of available apps. I'm starting to think there is a pact between MS and Netflix due to Netflix using Silverlight.

But I could always be wrong.
By the way, I see you are new here and want to thank you for finding the right section in the forums to post this.
Here is another thread too where (kind of) the opposite thing was said in a way. Feel free to read through it too and make your own conclusions.
Netflix kinda confirmed

Can we get something clear here? FRONT LINE REPS KNOW ****NOTHING****
The decision to support is made several levels up, and it undermines a marketing effort to drop hints through the customer service reps.
I used to sell Toyotas. They have top-notch product training for their sales staff, but trust me, they didn't let one little detail out in public until they absolutely had to. Remember this any time you read a report from someone who talked to a Verizon rep, or a BestBuy grunt, or a Netflix CSR.
They. Don't. Know.

But we are forced to hope and grasp onto what is available for information, which isn't much. Hopefully in a week at launch we will know more.

We are all here to help each other.

Haha. While it's fun for her to say "RIM doesn't want Netflix", it's silly. As others have noted, Alec Saunders has mentioned Netflix several times in tweets.
It's contractual, plain and simple. It costs Netflix money to develop and (more specifically) support the app and the customers using it on an ongoing basis. They know RIM needs them, the platform is unproven, so they're probably trying to see what they can get out of the deal.

.......and the Netflix saga continues.......people LET IT GO. If it comes to BB10, good, if it doesn't so what. This subject has been discussed about a 1000 times in these forums. Use search and add comments please.

Sorry but every time a person posts that netflix or Skype don't be available its a person with their first post. Why is that?
I have used android and crapple and never wanted any netflix or Skype. No one I know wants to use face time or the video chat on android.

Yeah it's been discussed, but I see all the threads about it and just hope someone at Netflix has seen them too to PROVE ONCE AND FOR ALL to them that there is a demand for it.

Serves no purpose other than kill your battery. Netflix you better have your phone charger plugged in. Other wise you have a dead device at the end of the movie, same goes for playing games more than 20 minutes.

Netflix is in bigger trouble than RIM..I suspect this deflection tactic is a way to make them look better than trying to extort every possible nickel out of every platform.
Having said all that...
I wouldn't be surprised to see them there at launch ...
