Netflix On Google’s Chromecast And In HD On The New Nexus 7

At an event in San Francisco, Google today unveiled Chromecast and a new Nexus 7 tablet. There is a Netflix angle to both these announcements.

We’re happy to share that Netflix is available immediately on Chromecast, a new and easy way to watch Internet video on your TV. Simply plug Chromecast into your TV, connect it to Wi-Fi, then launch Netflix on your Android device, iOS device or laptop to start playback on the TV. This will give you another great way of finding TV shows and movies to watch and a great TV viewing experience.


We're also working with Google on a new Android Netflix app that supports 1080p HD video. Today Google demonstrated the new Nexus 7, the first tablet to support this new Netflix app. More phones and tablets will be coming later this year, letting Netflix members enjoy TV shows and movies in the best possible quality on their mobile devices.
