Netflix app coming to iPad

Updated

Appadvice reports that Netflix has developed an official application for the iPad to be available in the App Store starting April 3rd. The Netflix iPad app is expected to be a free download but will require users to have an unlimited Netflix plan to access content. The app will allow iPad users to stream TV shows and movies from the Netflix catalog and browse and manage their Netflix queue from within the app. Users can also synchronize viewing status with the Netflix service in order to continue watching a movie from where they left off on another device. It is unclear at this time whether Netflix streaming will be supported over a 3G connection or only over Wi-Fi or whether an iPhone version of the application will also be available. [via PC World]
