Question Netflix

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone had any luck getting Netflix to stream movies to your Torch?

I tried it with and without wifi but all I get is a page indicating that instant movie streaming is not available outside the US - I'm in Texas.

Any help would be appreciated.

Then I guess it's confirmed...TEXAS is a separate country~! My Dad always told me that growing up there.

Sorry, couldn't help myself...

Now I'll go back to sleep.

Your web requests will be going through BIS-B which routes everything through a RIM Opperations Centre (ROC). Unless I'm mistaken, the ROC for North Americal is located in Canada.

You could try, but then you'll have to deal with the message that "the movie you have requested is not available in Canada ;)
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.

I'm looking forward to a Netflix app like the iOS app. I don't have my iPod touch anymore, and I miss having Netflix on the go.
