Netflix has unleashed version 2.0 of its Windows Phone app, with a handful of additions and generally improved experience.
More importantly, Netflix is now available for Windows Phone users in the UK and Ireland. All two of you! I jest. And cue: backlash.
The Netflix app has been available for a while across the Atlantic, specifically the US and Canada, and the latest update extends its reach considerably. As well as the UK and Ireland, a number of countries in Latin America finally get a taste.
We recently heard that the Nokia Lumia 900 was doing quite well Stateside, perhaps due to its assocation with busty orange-faced maniac Nicki Minaj, but more likely thanks to a $150 million marketing budget.
However, there’s no getting away from the fact that the App Store and Google Play have waaay more apps, with some gaping big-name holes on the Windows Marketplace.
Netflix will undoubtedly ease the pain a little, but Windows Phone still has a looooong way to go if it hopes to grab second place.
You can grab Netflix for Windows Phone now, as a free download from the Marketplace. Interestingly, Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) is a prerequisite, which means it won't be compatible with the upcoming Nokia Lumia 610.
