Before you begin to think that there is now Netflix support for HTC EVO 3D, then think again. What we have here is a workaround, which we will explain for you. Those of you who have the EVO 4D will be feeling smug right now, as they have support for the Netflix app, but help is at hand in a round about way.

If you do not feel like waiting for full support, then all you will need is EVO 4G’s APK. It takes seconds to download and then you will be able to watch Netflix on your new portable 3D device. If you wish to use the download, then you will need to visit Pocketables Forum.

Now when your friends tell you that Netflix will not work on your HTC EVO 3D, all you need to do is get your handset out and show them it in action. We cannot understand why it has not been made available in the normal way, instead of having to go the long way round in order to start streaming movies and TV shows?

There are a few things that you will need to do with your phone first in order for the SDK to work. The first thing is to enable the handset so that you can install apps from an unknown source. This can be located in settings and applications; just make certain that you have Unknown sources selected.

The next step is to download from the link that we gave you above. Do not worry about this download, as it is exactly the same as the one for the EVO 4G on the Android market. The last step is to just install the app on your phone. Once installed you will be able to enjoy Netflix how those with the 4G do. This is not the best solution, but is the only one available at this time, as we cannot be certain when HTC and Netflix will work together on a bona fide app for the EVO 3G? While you wait for this app, here are some of the best HTC EVO 3G apps on the market so far.

There is just one issue with this though, and that is Netflix still does not offer streaming in 3D, which seems a bit strange to us. More 3D devices are being launched all the time, but it seems as though support is a little slow – although this was the same for Blu-ray, as some movies are still not out on the preferred format.
