    Re: Latest Netflix app doesn't want to play with rooted devices

    I quite like Netflix, I use it now and then on my rooted OPO. As long as it still works on the FireTV I won't be too bothered by it. But it's annoying knowing I have to take additional steps just to get it working.

    This is a silly statement. We know that Netflix have made a decision, we're discussing the merits of it.

    I never even realised there was a mobile app, not that I can be bothered to watch anything on such a small screen.

    Does the website not work from mobile devices?

    It was in reply to some comments that Netflix had no RIGHT to do that. Whether it is wise for them to do so is another matter, as you say.
