Netflix App UK

What happened to the netflix app for the UK? how long has the US had it now? Could someone please tell me, is it Sony or Netflix that is holding this up? ONE of the main reasons i wanted a Vita is so i could have my handheld gaming device and netflix on the go on the same machine........so far i feel that the users of sony products aren't regarded as highly as Sony has made out in the last few days because i feel that  since i've paid my money for the vita all i've done is wait and wait and wait and wait for things to start happening. I'll hold out 1 more month and if I feel i am still 'waiting' then it's off to the shop to be resold.......might get a psp again.....now that brought endless hours of fun!

Personally I've been watching Netflix on Vita for the past 2 months.... If you can't be bothered to spend 5 mins to do that, I recommend you sell that Vita today, since you'll never have the patience to wait for the Euro version.

US got a it about a week after release.

 

Still waiting on Netflix submitting the App to SCEE to process.

 

Make it hard for App makers having to submit to different parts of Sony the Same App

 

Needs to be more like Microsoft and universal

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

The US version of netflix works with a UK account then does it? I assumed that the one from the US store would only work with US accounts.

It's stupid that they can't just port that version over here then if it's technically identical. I assume that's what they'll do, but it should be on there by now.

Apparently so. I've not tried it myself but a number of people here and on other forums have confirmed it.

I thought I'd backed everything up, but lost all my game saves for uncharted. Completed the game once, but have to start from scratch on treasures, bounties etc. Stangely all my other saves were fine.

Nope, never lost any data, I did have to reset up the settings though but all my downloads were still there.

 

The video's on youtube are useless though, I found an article on the web about it with instructions, and worked well.

Is there any update on the real problem? Why is it not on European stores? There's no technical reason or  logical business case from Sony not to get this on the Euro stores asap, it only benefits the Vita.

 

I can get the work around no problem but i want Sony to fix the real problem.

What workaround is that? If you mean getting it from a US account, you could only do that until fw 1.8.1. If you haven't got netflix already, you won't be able to get it that way now.

 

It's just a case of waiting for whoever is sitting on it.

Yeah! were is Netflix for the UK?

It works fine on the Vita but it seems Sony or Netflix want us all to move to the US to recieve the App.

This is just another nail in the PS Vita's coffin for me and locking memory cards to stop 2nd Acounts in different countries is not good too,if Sony distributed all content world wide maybe thier Vita sales would not of flopped this Xmas.

With the insane price of memory cards from Sony why would anybody want to download much content to the Vita anyway?

The only good thing Sony has done this side of Xmas for the Vita is the 25% price drop of Playstation Plus to £29.99 for 1 year subscription,but is it too little too late?

I bought my Vita thinking of wonderfull things like being able to play some of my old PS3 games possibly on it,but not what realy happened yet is it.

This is without a dought the best handheld on the market IMO being downgraded by its own creators and lazy game development ect,maybe it was launched too soon or pushed out without developers full support,but a simple App like Netflix should already of been available from day(month) 1 like in the US.

A none removable battery and expensive memory cards and games will force the cost of PS Vita sales to drop further,it's a real shame as this handheld was worth every penny of it's launch price in the beginning almost 12 months ago.

Greedy move i think making a console with no internal storage that realies on downloadable content mostly and then make expensive memory cards and games,like shooting yourself in the foot from the beginning.

Not giving up on this great handheld yet though but come on Sony get a grip of your future plans for the Vita,GIVE US NETFLIX here in the UK it's a great APP on the Vita and ive struggled to find any news of a release of the App for the UK on the web apart from this post here.

 

The Atari Lynx was an ambitious video game console released in September 1989 by Atari Corporation. The first color handheld The first color handheld portable video game system ever made, it sold fewer than 500,000 units, and was quickly abandoned by the company.

 

So was the Philips CDI a fail,I hope the Vita dos'nt suffer the same fate as these 2.

also bumping for netflix, i've got a feeling the issue is netflix don't want europeans to have access to the same content the US gets, probably due to some licensing issues, netflix in europe is vastly inferior to netflix in the US

that has nothing to do with it.

 

 

I have netflix on my Vita which was done before sony blocked the card swap trick

 

Though the app is from the US store it ONLY give me access to UK netflix

 

Also netflix did say they submitted the app to SCEE the same time as they did for SCEA
