Qualcomm Incorporated, a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies, products and services, today announced that future Android devices powered by the Snapdragon platform will have access to instant streaming of TV shows and movies from Netflix.
“We’re excited about this collaborative effort to help bring the Netflix application to Android devices running on the Snapdragon platform,” said Liat Ben-Zur, senior director of software strategy and ecosystems for Qualcomm. “Qualcomm is in a unique position to help bring the most optimized and advanced Android apps to market through working closely with the strong ecosystem of Snapdragon developers like Netflix.”
“We’re pleased to expand our mobile offering by providing our members an app for TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix to Snapdragon-enabled Android devices,” said Bill Holmes, Netflix vice president of Business Development. “Qualcomm’s expertise in mobile hardware/software integration and their collaboration in the consumer electronics space makes them the perfect fit in bringing Netflix to a range of Android handsets and tablets.”
The hardware needed to stream Netflix will most likely come out of another recent announcement from Qualcomm about the upcoming platform and processors.
Qualcomm will demonstrate the Netflix application at the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress.
