Netflix will soon be available from just about any digital medium, especially with the news that the popular streaming service is likely headed for Android.

Following in the footsteps of most gaming consoles, set-top boxes, the iPad and (soon) the iPhone, Ars Technica is reporting that an Android version will be in development after spotting a job posting for an "Android Video Playback Expert." Oooh.

With more mobile access to video streaming with the progression of tablets and improved smartphones, it's no surprise that Netflix is working on support for the Google OS. It would sure be nice to watch Netflix's Watch Instantly service from an HTC Evo 4G or Motorola Droid X.

Unfortunately, there's no timeline (nor official word) on this project just yet, but stay tuned for now. There's surely much more to come from this.
