Netflix for Android updated with improved video streaming

The official Netflix for Android has received a rather minor update this evening. While the update is pretty small it does promise an "enhanced playback experience" for phones and tablets, and even an additional installation method for those that might be having issues. Check out all the details after the break.

Men in Black 3 Game for Android teaser video revealed

Men in Black III is set to be a popular movie this summer and along with it we can expect an awesome game for Android thanks to Gameloft and Sony. Earlier we reported that they'd partnered on a mobile game, and today Gameloft has released the first teaser trailer of MIB III for Android. We even get a few glimpses of some actual gameplay, or so we think.

AR app lets the Avengers assemble… in Wal-Mart

Fantastic feats of strength and bravery. Epic showdowns between good and evil. Skin-tight catsuits. These are not things you'll see in your typical Wal-Mart (with the possible exception of that last one). But if you download the SuperHero AR app from the Google Play Store you might just see all of this, at least through the camera of your Android smartphone.

600 Movies coming to Android and YouTube from MGM

Google just released another tidbit of awesome news today for everyone that loves movies and Android. That is everyone right? New details on the official YouTube Blog have just confirmed that Google has partnered with Metro Goldwyn Mayer, better known as MGM, and will be bringing 600 of their classic and famous movies to Android and YouTube.

Flixster for Android gets updated – video streaming still poor

The hugely popular Movies by Flixster app for Android received a rather large update today in the Google Play Store. For being Friday the 13th things are looking up already. Surprisingly the update oddly lists multiple fixes for yes, Android 1.5 and 1.6 (Donut and Cupcake) devices for the few that still have them. Flixster specifically mentioned better video streaming on mobile data, which I'm not seeing any improvements on.

Hulu Plus updated with brand new tablet UI for Android

Good news today for anyone that uses Hulu. They've finally updated Hulu Plus for Android with full tablet support with a sleek new user interface and fullscreen streaming. Hulu hasn't been a very popular Android app and the user interface was quite poor if you ask me. After installing the new tablet-optimized app on my Transformer Prime I can safely say the new app is awesome, and looks great on a 10-inch screen.

Blockbuster On Demand coming to Samsung phones and tablets

Today Samsung has landed a deal with Blockbuster and their On-Demand services, and will soon be offering full On-Demand access and streaming to Samsung smartphones and tablets. Not to mention their wide array or TV's and another electronics. According to Smarthouse the service will hit devices in the US, UK, and parts of Europe during the next few months. Then head to Australia in the second half of 2012.

Google Home Entertainment System and Cloud Drive could be linked

We've already heard rumblings of the long-speculated Google cloud storage system coming to fruiting soon under the label "Google Drive". Now the rumor mill at WSJ is churning with news of a home entertainment service from the ubiquitous search engine provider, which may or may not be linked with the Android@Home project. It is coincidence that both of these stories have been leaked within hours of each other? Officially, yes; that's kind of the nature of a leak.  But unofficially it all points to a centralized, Google-hosted media hub that's accessible from any Android device, PC, or connected television.
