    Ok, I have ideas but really you don't have to talk down to me.
    I myself develop apps.
    RIM COULD try to make an agreement with them, but why should they?
    Netflix is the one losing subscribers from this NOT RIM

    over 1100 sigs already. Post it everywhere you can people. Lets push this. If they do end up with a PB app I will sign up again. I cancelled the day they said no BB support and so did my father.

    I am an avid Netflix user and really want this app. I am to a point that i will jump ship on Netflix if Hulu or Amazon video beats them with playbook support! And, if anyone wants to start any other petitions for other apps, whether i use them or not, I will sign. We need choices and To with companies that refuse to bring us their apps. We deserve to have a level playing field and be able to pick tablets based on features alone, not the apps. And while we are at it, hey RIM, have you considered subscriptions for the new video store?

    I also cancelled my account awhile ago. The Playbook would be amazing to have Netflix on.

    Yeah RIM isn't losing subscribers, they lose potential tablet sales because of high demand applications not existing on their platform.

    But I guess that isn't their concern....

    Still do you have to ruin things?
    RIM could do something but really if RIM wants Netflix and they don't make an application and they see many consumers wanting Netflix, they will buy the company.
    Just like all the other companies...
    P.S. Your still talking to me like I'm trash, I didn't start any fight here...

    Just write "notneeded" in those categories, it works...

    I am still waiting to hear what they can do. You cannot negotiate from a position of weakness. All it took was a tweet from a Netflix spokesperson, and Saunders is asking BB fans to cool it. I guess they could offer to buy their way into those apps, but again, not really sure I see how RIM can do anything to bring the apps to the PB.

    You're taking it personal. RIM is screwing up here and you are defending them, which exemplifies why RIM is in the position they are right now in general... They don't deserve to be defended.

    The sarcasm in "But I guess that isn't their concern..." is directed at RIM. They don't care about the very reasons they are losing marketshare.

    Netflix is but one example of this. Maybe you get a Neftlix app, but nobody else's mentality has really changed overall...

    They also can't get a decent Bing Maps application, yet they are in signed agreements with Microsoft. Hmm....

    So essentially, they can't push for anything to come to their own platform unless they do it entirely themselves (which isn't always possible). If that's true, then the BB platform is a lost cause.

    Because one of the biggest problems the playbook has is its lack of big apps. People want apps like skype, netflix, etc on their tablets and when they find out that the playbook supports none of them, they just move on. So really, getting that netflix app out in app world is a win win situation for both netflix and RIM imo. Really hope it happens soon...

    Internet logic at it's finest!

    And at the risk of getting flambeau-d, it's very possible that most of the apps people pine for aren't developed for the PlayBook because it wields FULL web capability. As a developer, why would you spend time and resources developing an app for a device that can access the full content on it's web browser? I don't even understand why the PlayBook comes with a Youtube app. That app is much, much worse than the website; not to mention the app won't even let you play videos in HD. But anyways...
    Yes, the full web experience that doesn't support Silverlight (the actual reason you can't use Netflix); isn't supported by Amazon Instant Video; has a very long list of incompatible sites over on the Blackberry forum; doesn't remember passwords; can't organize favorites. For some reason I seem to be missing the whole web experience part of this....

    You sure are. Any links to where it says Silverlight is the reason Netflix doesn't work? I, along with many others, have watched Amazon Instant Video w/o issue. Operator headspace, maybe? Not sure what you mean by remembering passwords. Every site I log into keeps me logged in. Turn on your cookies and turn off private browsing before you log in then on again after you get logged in. But I guess if you're too lazy to type a password, you'll no doubt be too lazy to do that, too.

    Edit:
    I don't really care if we get Netflix or not since I can watch Amazon, Crackle, etc., but I signed the petition, anyway.
