Netflix streaming will be available on Microsoft Surface tablets


Just in case you were worried, Netflix is going Metro. Netflix is developing a Metro application for the Windows 8 platform, which will make its debut on the Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets later this year. Microsoft’s Steven Sinofsky quickly showed off a beta version of Netflix for Windows 8 at the Surface press event in Los Angeles last night, where he stated that a Netflix application with Metro-UI optimized touch zooming technique and semantic zoom would launch alongside the RT tablet in the fall.

Not that anyone in their right mind was worried about Netflix not being available on Windows 8, but we’ll rest assured knowing we can still watch that backlog of Doctor Who on the Windows 8 platform.

    Is the next Barnes and Noble tablet going to be based on this ‘Surface?’ A rumor was going around that Barnes and Noble will leave Android and join Microsoft. Bye Anroid!
