Netflix App Updated for Android Tablets Including the B&N Nook & Amazon Fire

Netflix announced that its free Android app was updated this week to provide a better experience for viewers using an Android tablet. This tablet support includes the Amazon Fire and Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet that also became available this week.

New Experience Now Available for All Android Tablets (iPad Coming Soon)

The updated app shows twice as many shows compared to the previous app release. The artwork for each show title is larger despite the increased number of titles per screen. Swiping on a row of titles scrolls horizontally through a list.

It is curious that Netflix chose to provide the updated app for Android tablets before the much better selling iPad. Could it be that Netflix is using Android tablet users as a small (relative to the iPad) test group?

The updated app was not available in the Android Market or the Amazon Android App Store at the time of this writing. However, when it is available, it should be found here in the Android Market: Netflix
