Netflix updated with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich support

Just in time for everyone in the US to start receiving their Galaxy Nexus phones running ICS, Netflix has updated today with full support for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The update has just hit the Android Market and it only shows a few small bug fixes and ICS support. This is just in time because I'm sure many are picking their Nexus up at this very moment.

Netflix could get scooped up by Verizon for 4.6 Billion

Rumors suggest video streaming service, Netflix, could get purchased by Verizon Wireless for $4.6 Billion. The source also revealed Verizon has been currently looking for a way to minimize costs for video streaming, thus Netflix sounds like an excellent company to get involved with. Netflix is already available for practically every capable Android device, so syncing it within a service would be amazing.

Barnes & Noble readies massive Nook Color update with Netflix and Marvel Comics

It's always nice to see a company supporting its products after an erstwhile successor has been introduced, and it looks like Barnes & Noble is doing just that with its Nook Color tablet-reader. The bookseller just released a huge update to the Nook Color's software, well over a year after its original release, and almost a month after the Nook Tablet relegated it to the second tier of Barnes & Noble's hardware offerings. Customers who weren't swayed by the incremental updates in the Nook Tablet will no doubt be appreciative.

Verizon and Redbox team up for movie streaming

It seems Verizon is planning a joint venture with Redbox to offer movie streaming and TV shows through Android, Google TV, Xbox, and iOS. It’s assumed the service will be much like that of Netflix, but with a slight twist on how users will purchase content. If you’ve ever traveled to your local gas station and picked up a Redbox rental, then you would know they only charge a dollar per rental. The catch is, if you don’t return the item before the same time the following day - you’re slapped with a late fee.

Netflix updates with new tablet-friendly UI

Netflix customers using an Android tablet got a surprise late last night, when a new version of the Android app sporting a completely revamped UI showed up in the Market. The new user interface appears to be contingent upon screen resolution, not operating system, so those of you rocking a Froyo or Gingerbread tablet can get in on the action as well. In a few days the new UI will be showing up on the Nook Tablet and Kindle Fire.

Today ASUS has started the rollout for a small OTA update to the ASUS EeePad Transformer Tablet. From initial reports the update brings the Transformer up to build 8.6.5.9 and many are reporting that Netflix is now fully supported. We saw the Netflix logo appear on the homepage for the ASUS Transformer but we've still yet to see any official comments or support as of late.
