Netflix adds more Android phones to streaming service

After being jealous of Apple's iPhone users for their Netflix streaming video app, some Android phone users finally got access to the thousands of movies and TV shows that Netflix has access to earlier this month. Now Android Central reports that three more Android based phones have added support for the Netflix apps thanks to a new update.

The newly added phones include the LG Revolution, the Casio G'zOne Commando and one of the first Android-based phones, the Motorola Droid. These devices join the Samsung Nexus S, the HTC Incredible, the HTC Nexus One, the HTC Evo 4G and the HTC G2 as supporting the Netflix app. More Android based phones are expected to be added in the coming months.

In addition to the new phone support, the Netflix Android app also has a few bug fixes including on that "fixed application failure on startup when phone's embedded storage space is almost full." There's also a bug fixed that "removed check that prevented attempt to playback on unsupported devices."

Netflix itself is adding more and more movies and TV shows to its already large library of streaming video titles. Earlier this month they announced it would add movies from the film studio Miramax to its line up. Last Sunday it also announced that it would be adding more TV shows from MTV Networks to the streaming service. That includes the cult children's show Yo Gabba Gabba which makes its first Netflix streaming video appearance along with other shows from MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and others.
