Not sure I'd use Netflix, but that's more a case of the data usage and the availability of a signal.------------------------------------
Sometimes I wonder if the Styx song, "Too Much Time On My Hands" was a secret foretelling of the tendency to armchair CEO in discussion forums?
"Now, I'm a jet fuel genius I can solve the world's problems without even trying
I have dozens of friends and the fun never ends
That is, as long as I'm buying
Is it any wonder I'm not the president ...?"

Not to mention BlackBerry wants to get into the "mobile computing" arena - having Netflix (as well as other key apps) is essential to BlackBerry 10's success.

Re: Netflix Customer Support Answer Regarding BB10
respectfully, even though any app support is good, I will never agree that Netflix is essential to success. a mobile platform is not for or even primarily used for watching movies. its just simply a featureSprint Bold 9930 running OS 7.1

My comment would be you believe any customer service rep that answered "My BF has a BlackBerry and he loves it but its way to complicated for me!" Like dude I am here to like tell you all the answers! Toke toke.

This is prolly because NetFlix wants more of the "$pie$ than RIM wants to give them. I get it,..I clearly understand this,...in the end, business is business,...everything else is just friendship!JMDBerry

I am curious as to how many of the people who need netflix on bb10 will actually use a 4.2" screen to watch it. I have it on my windows laptop and I am happy with that because I won't go blind looking at that screen.

Sounds like BlackBerry World might have most of the same content. Probably more expensive though.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

Yeah, BlackBerry has all the major movie studios and music labels on board for BlackBerry World so they pretty much rendered Netflix unnecessary. With bridge and the hdmi output you also have the option to connect your BlackBerry device to a Television/monitor and watch media content there to boot. Hopefully there's a subscription service introduced that allows users to get unlimited access to content in BlackBerry World? Or something along those lines.

All this is is corporate talk, Netflix was likely unsatisfied with the financial terms offered by BB, BB in turn did not want to be fleeced by Netflix and voila, Netflix can blame BB for not being interested in having Netflix.

- Just ask
Think it may be an issue with silverlight. Micro$oft's layer that does the drm for netflix. Would easily explain RT having it and BB not.
Either way I dont care. I always wanted it so I could hook my pb up to the tv and watch some movies, but I got one of those fancy bluray players that does it.
