Well, it looks like the LG Revolution won't be the first Android phone to get Netflix after all. The app has just hit the Android Market and is currently available for the HTC Incredible, Nexus One, Evo 4G, and G2, plus the Samsung Nexus S.

streaming movies via 3g can be so annoying, it just stops in the middle sometimes

I definitely see this coming to the Galaxy S since there is a native apk for the Nexus S.

Pretty lame that it's available for Droid Incredible but not my brand new Droid Incredible 2..... I would love to lay in bed and watch movies at night.
