In what could be major blow to BlackBerry’s (BBRY) new operating system, a Netflix (NFLX) spokesperson has confirmed to AllThingsD that it has no plans for a BlackBerry 10 app. BlackBerry previously revealed that it was “in talks” with both Netflix and a variety of other companies to bring popular applications to its mobile platform. Netflix has now confirmed, however, that it has no plans of developing a native or port version of its video streaming app for the BlackBerry 10 operating system. Sources speaking to AllThingsD claim the company has little incentive to develop for the platform and its small user base, suggesting that maintaining the app would outweigh any potential benefits garnered from it.
