Netflix App Adds Video Streaming for iPhone, iPod

Version 1.1.0 of the hugely popular Netflix App has been released. And, as promised, it delivers video streaming Support both to Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch.

The iOS App Store software update, released on Thursday, makes good on the pledge from Netflix last April to provide iPhone and iPod touch users with the ability stream movies directly from their handset.

Netflix subscribers with unlimited memberships can now view unlimited content on their iDevices directly from their Instant Watch queue.

From PC World:

Browsing through and searching for titles is as easy as it sounds, though you can expect to do a lot of scrolling on the iPhone’s 3.5-inch screen. Once you find a title you like, you can add it to your Instant Queue or start playing it immediately.

Version 1.1 requires iOS 3.1.3 or later.

Best of all, just like the Netflix app for the iPad, the streaming service works over 3G on the iPhone. It should be noted, however, that the software update utilizes “adaptive technology” which, in turn, enables “instant switching between Wi-Fi and 3G connections.”
