    Default Version 1.1.0 of Netflix App Brings Streaming Support to iPhone, iPod



    Falling neatly into the category of "I should have written about this sooner but I was too busy enjoying it," the good people at Netflix rolled out an iOS App Store software update today, effectively delivering to iPhone and iPod touch users the ability stream movies directly from their handset.

    version 1.1.0 of the Netflix app now supporting iPhone and iPod Touch in addition to iPad is a welcome arrival to Netflix subscribers (at least those with unlimited memberships) and a new opportunity to soak up as much content as they desire from their Instant Watch queue. Version 1.1 requires iOS 3.1.3 or later. In case you're wondering, the streaming service does in fact work over 3G on the iPhone - just like the iPad. According to the hugely popular video rental service, the software made available through this latest update utilizes "adaptive technology" which allows for instant switching between Wi-Fi and 3G connections.

    For months (since April, in fact), the people at Netflix have promised to supplement their iPad app with a corresponding iPhone/iPod app. Although this "eventuality" took longer than many Netflix lovers had hoped, today they are reveling in the arrival of this neat little app, which is so totally cool that it even makes some restless in anticipation of getting back to it.

    Now, if you'll excuse me...

    Streaming Tosh.O right now over 3G. Works very well. Small pause when have to stop and start but not long at all.

    I forsee ATT network problems ahead.
    I thought my carrier was bad til I got a new web host

    This is awesome. I have been waiting for this since I heard about it being on the ipad. I just wonder how long the battery will last.

    I *almost* feel bad for all the people that wrote Apps for Netflix queue managers and were charging for them, lol. This has made them completely obsolete.

    load up cydelete and use that to delete your existing netflix app. i had to do that myself.

    i've streamed a couple of shows now even on my spotty crappy 3g connection here. the first few minutes of each were pretty jittery but WOW did it even out nicely after that.

    Lol, yes it does! It's called "backgrounder" and "multiflow"! Jailbreak that beast, disable the crappy iOS4 psuedo-multitasking and get with the program!

    Yep, it's called "display out" on cydia. Allows you to display Hulu videos as well as netflix to any TV with the proper cable a MUST HAVE jailbroken app.

    I don;t think it has its own queue mgr built in. So those apps are not obsolete. Yet.

    Works great. Happy to see it on the iPhone finally.
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
