Netflix for iPhone Released

by Marianne Schultz
 

It’s been nearly three months since it was first announced at Apple’s WWDC in early June but Netflix is finally available for the iPhone. Early this morning, the Netflix app was updated to universal format to add compatibility with the iPhone and iPod touch. Previously, the app had worked on the iPad only.

No additional features come with this update though unlike the iPad version, the app offers no way to manage your DVD Queue on the iPhone. Movies can be streamed over Wi-Fi and 3G and will resume playing at the point they were last viewed on your iPad or computer.

While the Netflix app is free, it requires a monthly plan with Netflix of at least $8.99 per month. There is a less expensive plan but it includes only physical DVD rentals and does not include streaming.

    About time. Already installed it and tried a video. So far it seems decent.

    Fantastic! My iPhone just became even more useful and fun than before (which is hard to believe)!

    You have to be on 3.1.3 OS or later to use this app.

    I was scared I’d have to use OS 4, which would’ve meant removing my jailbreak, so I’m glad they didn’t make me upgrade to use this.
