Good news for those of you who watch Netflix “on the go” and who also have 720P devices like the ATIV S or HTC 8X. Netflix version 220.127.116.11 is now out on the Store, and it adds at least two things that we can see right off the bat: support for 720P resolution (meaning no more “black bars” for viewing) and double wide tile support.
That first one is pretty huge as being able to see full HD video on a 720P HD screen is kind of a big deal for Netflix fans. Now that the app has the full resolution support, videos can be watched “wide screen” and boy do they look great.
Doublewide Tile support is less awesome but still, that bold logo looks great on our ATIV S. Sure, it doesn’t do anything cool like flip or reveal information (Last played video? Recommendations? C’mon, Netflix) but for those who want to fill up some space on your device, you can now do so.
There are probably some other “under the hood” improvements but seeing as we rarely use this app and don’t have a list of bugs to check against, we’ll have to rely on you to post anything you notice in comments.
