Can the PlayBook stream from Netflix or Xfinity?

Is there a way to stream movies from Netflix and/or Xfinity on the Playbook?

Re: Can the PlayBook stream from Netflix or Xfinity?

is the lack of response supposed to mean "no". I too would love to know if there is a way to watch instantly from my netflix account on my playbook.

Re: Can the PlayBook stream from Netflix or Xfinity?

No.  You would think that there would be an App already.  How long has the Playbook been since it's release?  No Hulu, No Streaming Netflix, No Slingbox and I get a chainlink fence on te xfinity web page where there should be a video playing.  How disappointing.

I agree with you, TonyWilliams65,

Hulu and Netflix are not very professional.

I don't understand what you are basing your opinion on xandrex.

How are Netflix and hulu unprofessional?

 

I think that all this fluff we are getting about wait and see, will turn out to be some sort of partnership with some 3rd party content provider with bb so start charging for their own video on demand.

I saw a link somewhere that stated that in the release off os2 there would be a solution as I've mentioned above.

No wonder they haven't implemented the netflix or skype yet. Some wizard of a marketing genius thought it would be a "FABO" idea for  this to come to fruition. So completely alienating users from what they want and giving us what they want..

I believe that you have it backwards xandrex, it is bb who would seem to be acting completely unprofessional.

Here's the link to the below story.
http://crackberry.com/press-release-research-motion-previews-blackberry-playbook-os-20-ces-2012?page...

Video store - a catalog of thousands of movies and TV shows will be available through the integrated BlackBerry Video Storefront* with new releases to be made available for purchase or rent the same day they come out on DVD. Users will be able to begin watching media as soon as they start to download the file, so users won't have to wait for the entire file to transfer before they can enjoy great entertainment on the tablet's high resolution display, or on an HDTV via the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet's HDMI output.

Here's a link to the support guidelines

With the Playbook upgrade, look forward to being able to download an app to watch Xfinity on my playbook.....SOON.

Thanks.

Re: Can the PlayBook stream from Netflix or Xfinity?

How's the waiting going? New operating system yet still no apps that will accommodate netflix, Hulu, amazon etc. I find it amazing that every other tablet has access to stream netflix, or other similar type services yet the playbook cannot. Oh yeah that movies app that came with the new OS is a joke and very expensive.  I'm sure RIM is getting percentage of sales. Probably why it's. The only service available for the playbook.  I am VERY disappointed.
