It’s a bit of a kick in the pants to those of us on Android who have waited patiently for Netflix, but the truth hurts sometimes. When you have a streaming platform built on Silverlight and you have a mobile OS that is built on Silverlight, it only makes sense that Netflix would be available out of the gate for owners of Windows Phone 7 devices.

Though the devices aren’t even available until November 8th (start that countdown timer), you’ll be able to access your Netflix content from the get go assuming that you have a Netflix account, according to what we’re seeing over at winrumors. Take a look at the demo, and then let us know your thoughts in the comments.
