Netflix for iPhone Now Available with Streaming Movies and TV Shows

Back at the iOS 4 announcement, Netflix announced that they would have an app for iPhone out this summer to join its iPad offering, and today it’s available! As you would expect, you can add shows to your instant queue, search for particular TV shows or movies, browse through genres of programming, and watch shows right on your iPhone, streaming in over 3G or Wi-Fi. The app remembers where you left off, so you can jump right back into your movie if you get interrupted. Of course, you need to sign up for an $8.99/month subscription to use Netflix, but for just about all of the mobile entertainment you could ever need, that seems like a small price to pay.
I’m sure I’m not the only Canadian who wishes we had the service up here, especially considering it plugs into your TV through Xbox, Wii, Playstation 3, WiVo, and a variety of other web-enabled hardware. Digital streaming certainly makes more sense than mailing out DVDs, and it enables a wider variety of applications, like mobile in this case. Android fans, sit tight – it sounds like Netflix is coming your way next.
Hit up the download link below to get started, and visit their home page to get a subscription.
