Default netflix on mobile devices??

Who here has netflix on mobile devices? I have it on my samsung galaxy s3, but when I try to watch anything the screen is all blurry. Have any of you used it on an ipad, kindle, itouch ect? I have an Itouch but the screen is to small. Finally do you have to have internet/wifi to watch the stuff in the instant que? At work the one spot where I can use the device and watch movies does not have wifi at all. (my phone has internet on it). It gets boring I am lucky to see two customers in an 8 hour shift.

My wife uses it all the time on her iPad to keep my daughters entertained while running errands. Yes you do need an internet or wifi connection to watch anything. She also has an SG3 from Verizon and never had any issues with picture being blurry. Pixelated at times due to a weak signal but never blurry.

Have you tried re installing the app?

I use it on my S2 and it's not bad, but I do have the luxury of wifi. If you don't have a connection you won't be able to see anything.

Well I tried to reinstall it, I do have 4g on my phone too but no wifi at work. I will go to the phone store tomorrow and see if there is a setting I can change on it.

netflix android app is a POS. I can't use it on my phone anymore and when it did work the words went faster than the screen. I now have it on my tablet (be it a generic one w/Ice cream) I have to uninstall and reinstall it everytime I turn off wifi or turn off the screen. when it's going it is pretty good. Just the fact that I have to take it off and put it back everytime is such a waste. make sure you have plenty of room as the app store shows it at like 11mb, but it is really like 35mb

Odd, seriously, no issues at all here or on my wife's Nexus 7. I've got to wonder if your hardware is the issue (or maybe some other app is causing issues).

Bandwidth permitting, Netflix streams great on my Surface RT, Windows 7 Phone and my wife's iPhone.
