The more companies who smarten up and start saving money by NOT developing for crap OS like this the better. Stop supporting it and people will stop buying it so it will FINALLY go away.

I see netflix loosing 5 subscribers because of this.... maybe.

In other news, Edelbrock announced they won't be manufacturing racing parts for Smart cars.

I don't see why anybody would want to watch TV or movies on such a small device anyway. My 15" laptop is the minimum size that I want to watch anything longer than 15 minutes on. Any smaller (or longer) and the eye strain takes away from the experience (plus, any environment you're in where you can't have a device larger than a phone probably isn't that great for video watching anyway).

I would like to see Netflix and Time Warner get their s#!t together and start using open connect.....then i could watch Netflix in HD like mother nature intended us too.

Or Netflix could stop making excuses and stream in HD regardless of whether or not our ISPs use "open connect".

I'm ready to cancel my streaming as this low-grade 720 resolution stream looks like crap.

Even if all Blackberry users cancel their Netflix accounts does anything think it will hurt Netflix to loose what, maybe 200 accounts? lol!

Seriously people, three years ago Blackberry had over 42% of the US smartphone market, as of last month that number had plunged to 5.4% so how much time and effect should be put toward supporting a dying service?

There are still close to 100 million blackberry users currently active. That's nothing to scoff at losing. On top of that, that five percent figure is almost double what pre bb10 was.

how many of those blackberry users are in countries where Netflix is available? And how many of those only have BB because their company provided them, but their personal phone is an iPhone or Android set?
