Netflix Support Arrives for Asus Eee Pad Transformer

By  |  19 Comments

We absolutely love the Asus Eee Pad Transformer but one thing that has been missing is the lack of support for Netflix.As it stands, the only Honeycomb tablets with Netflix certification are the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad Tablet but that doesn’t mean that a little sideloading can’t be done. Today though, an update rolled out for the Eee Pad Transporter and it appears that Netflix can now be sideloaded on board.

Droid-Life is reporting that a minor update, specifically build 8.6.5.9 is rolling out and it looks like its aim is to take care of issues that went down with the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update.

That’s obviously not all. It appears that this minor update has brought along Netflix support with it as Eee Pad Transformer owners are saying that they have sideloaded it and it works perfectly.

In order to do that, you’ll need to download this APK file and install it. Once done, you should be able to run Netflix on your Eee Pad Transformer. Let me/us know how it works, will ya?

Just another reason that we love Asus.

Note: Updated the APK link with the latest Netflix APK file from XDA.

    It won’t let me open that download. Says that the download isn’t available because the link is bad, or the file has been deleted. 

    Where can I get the apk file to sideload?

    That update also enabled the Transformer to work with ad-hoc wifi networks. For us old Windows Phone users who aren’t eligible to update our phones yet (or waiting for the right one), it means we can use our phones as wifi hotspots for the Transformer. Or join a group that has one USB hotspot, and shares the connection through a laptop’s ad-hoc wifi.

    Increased the usability for me 1000%.

    Works great. Streaming works. Search works. Que managing works. It says there is an update every time I open it, but no update is showing up in the market.
