Update Netflix-app to current standards and HD
I know the Netflix app essentially was a pet project of John Carmack and it was really great on GearVR at the time.
Now it looks like a neglected child and need an upgrade to match the wonderful new hardware of the Quest 2.
Please talk to the concerned parties (Netflix?). And John, if you´re seeing this: Blow some magic coding dust its way. Please?
Wishlist by order of priority:
*Update the streams to HD-material - 480p doesn´t look good. (never really did, but now it looks horrendous)
*Update textures in the enviroment (gives us more enviroments?), Passthrough as background?
*Ability to watch together with a friend or two.
*Ability to download videos to the device.
*Give some love to Void Theatre and let us choose backdrops, color schemes or even passthrough + some more control on curvature of the screen.
*Maybe integrate it as an Oculus-TV-app?

yep get this done
I just got my quest2. Was wondering why this pathetic app existed. Netflix is not worth using as it is on the quest2
3D support seems like a no brainier as well unless I am missing something

This really needs to be fixed after all those years! Netflix, seriously, WTF? Looks like crap! And why is 3D not working?
Lowered my subscription to basic, why should I pay more as Netflix is refusing to unlock higher resolution anyway?
Guy Funnell commented
Yes please more resolution
Mucho mejor la app de Prime!! Netflix espavila!!

Quest 2 really makes viewing video a delight so as others are saying please encourage Netflix to upgrade the Netflix app to take advantage of the increased resolution.
I would love my friends to be able to join me on that sofa too so we could talk to each other about what we're watching. It would be a life saver during all the pandemic lockdowns
As well as resolution update we need colour controls. Even when streaming from VD it's ridiculously over saturated.
