Netflix was very interested but no app yet - of course, no Fire yet, either.

This from an interview with David Limp, VP of Amazon Kindle:

Q: Is there a Hulu app for the device?
A: I haven't talked to Hulu. We have talked to Netflix, Pandora, Facebook and Twitter, and they all seem very enthusiastic to put an app on the device.

Do you have a Netflix account? If not then you will have to sign up for one. I have Netflix on my Kindle Fire and so does my son and we were able to watch movies once we downloaded the app and signed to our account

Perhaps read the sticky notice at the top of the forum:

We're excited to share that when Kindle Fire customers across the country start opening their boxes next week, they will be able to choose from several thousand of the most popular Android apps and games, including Netflix, Rhapsody, Pandora, Twitter, Comics by comiXology, The Weather Channel and popular games from Zynga, EA, Gameloft, PopCap and Rovio. In addition to these new apps, customers will also be able to access Amazon's incredible selection of 18 million movies, TV shows, music, books, magazines, and more.

Kindle Fire customers will be able to download these apps and games without the hassle of having to register multiple times with multiple providers. Instead, with just a few taps, Kindle Fire owners can download these apps and games using the Amazon account their device is registered to and with the convenience of Amazon's simple and secure 1-Click payments technology. All apps are Amazon-tested on Kindle Fire for the best experience possible, and once downloaded, can be accessed directly from Kindle Fire and other Android-based devices.

With the Netflix app, Kindle Fire customers who are Netflix members can browse and instantly watch unlimited TV shows and movies and resume watching where they left off on their TV or computer. Additional examples of apps and games that will be available to Kindle Fire customers include Allrecipes, Bloomberg, Cut the Rope, Doodle Fit, Doodle Jump, Fruit Ninja, Jenga, LinkedIn, Zillow, Airport Mania, Battleheart, Pulse, The Cat in the Hat, Quickoffice Pro, Jamie's 20-Minute Meals, IMDb Movies & TV, and Monkey Preschool Lunchbox.

Customers in the U.S. can pre-order Kindle Fire at, which starts shipping on November 15.

activation code? All I did was sign in with my username and password. You sure you got the right app?

It does and it's free.

You don't need an activation code if you get Netflix from the marketplace. Just download the app and then login. If you try to do it from the web, it will ask for the code.

works great - I have watched several shows on the fire already

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 26, 2011 8:53:02 PM PST
Thanks! The best answer. When I tried bringing it up from the web it asked for the code but typing "netflix free app for kindle fire" on amazon brought it right up.

When I try to login in to Netflix I get a Login Timed Out error message and get told to make sure I have my login correct. I can login on my desktop with the same information, so I know I have it right.

Maybe you could try deleting the app and then download it again.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 27, 2011 6:05:23 PM PST
Make sure you are trying to log in from the app.
It won't work through the browser.

Laura, when I installed the app on my Kindle Fire, all I needed to enter was my Netflix user name and password.

I have netflix on my Wii and downloaded the app on my kindle fire but it still says I need certain system requirements and an activation code. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Make sure you are running the APP and not trying to access the website!

Are you using the Netflix app and logging into your Netflix account? You can't use a browser to access streaming video on a mobile device.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 8, 2012 7:05:56 PM PDT
Mine works perfectly. Are you using the Netflix app and signing in to your Netflix account? (e-mail address and password)

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 8, 2012 10:58:49 PM PDT
As others have pointed out, you need to have the Netflix Android application to stream Netflix. It's free in the Amazon App Store.
