Netflix Queue Manager v3 for Blackberry has been discontinued as of 10/2011

In late September my NQM app stopped connecting to Netflix. As I logged in I was greeted with this Initializing screen:

Initail startup screen

Then it just dropped into the Login screen following an error message stating “Login credentials incorrect. Please retry".

I sent a Feedback report from within the app and got nothing. In October I sent an e-mail to Pyxis Mobile asking for an explanation of the status of their Blackberry app Netflix Queue Manager v3:

I keep getting “Login credentials incorrect. Please retry” with no indication of what’s wrong. I connected just fine
a couple days ago, and now all day I get the login error. I tried all suggestions in the FAQ, what is going on?
Is the app being discontinued because of Netflix’s new service changes with separate queues?

I even removed the app form my Netfilx authorization list, and re-added it. I still get the “Login” error message.
I have changed the Connection Type to Auto, BIS, and Wi-Fi and none are working. What is going on? I paid for
this app (4.99$ see below for invoice) and want to know why noone from your company has contacted me yet??
What is going on? Why can’t I connect? My Netflix account and password are correct. I linked from both my Blackberry
and my PC and the link was successful. Why I am not connecting? What is going on? Why won’t anyone tell me what’s
going on? It’s been over a week since I first emailed this issue to you!

Is the app being discontinued because of Netflix’s new service changes?

PS: Why the Android version FREE vs the paid version for Blackberry?

Hi Paul,

Unfortunately, Neflix has discontinued support of the public API used to manage user queues and thus, support for the application has also been discontinued. Thanks.

Jeff

This is the only official information regarding the Blackberry app on the Internet: here on my blog and .netBoard!. The only other information is located here on the Netflix Developer Blog.

For 1 year and 5$ it was worth it, but Netflix is really getting my goat. Reading the Blog you discover that even the Qwikster API is being canned, and maybe the whole idea as a whole. Netflix doesn’t want to do DVDs and Bluray anymore?! Then what is the point is staying in business at all? The streaming catalog has only a fraction of what is offered on DVD, and the Bluray catalog is even less. Sigh….I see a dark future for them unless they go back to the original business platform.

My life is what it is. Don't say anything. You're just being judgmental. this bLog is my online journal, though I also have a forum. When the spirit moves me, I may also include longer essays. Well, let's see how this goes.
