I can't access to my account.
If I click ok, it brings me to the android mall and there isn't even a netflix app there.
What am I doing wrong??
Something happened about a week or so ago to change the success of version 1.5.0.
When I originally downloaded Netflix 1.5.0 - it worked great! A little sluggish at times, but I think this is normal for mobile devices. A message would come up telling you that there was a newer version of the app - and did you want to upgrade? You click 'no' or 'cancel' - or whatever it was - and then continue on your merry way to watch your show using Netflix 1.5.0.
BUT...about a week ago - I started to get a DIFFERENT message when I loaded 1.5.0 - it was saying 'You MUST upgrade to the newer version' to continue. If you said 'no' - you'd get the same results you just mentioned (it would close). If you said 'yes' - the upgrade would either fail (and you'd have to force close it) or it would succeed, and you'd either have a crappy viewing experience or Netflix wouldn't even load.
I thought the different message I was getting was due to my installation of Flash 11. I now know that's not the case, as I just recently did a factory reset - and the first thing I did was re-install Netflix 1.5.0 with the same yucky results.
I am not sure what changed with Netflix, but obviously they introduced something on their site in the past week which now prevents us from using 1.5.0.
Be patient, though - I think it's only a matter of time before we can get it working again. Keep in mind that streaming does seem to be a bit hit and miss with the Vox (because of lack of processor power? Not sure...), so it's not going to be like your laptop...
I am not too bummed about it though, because I do most of my streaming at home via my PC. I really wanted my Vox for travel (books, mags, and movies stored on the device to watch when I do not have WiFi access) - and the Vox delivers magnificently on those fronts....
