Netflix surveys interest in iPhone app

According to a recent report from Hacking Netflix, several Netflix users have received a survey suggesting that an iPhone streaming application may be in development. The survey describes a hypothetical iPhone app that would allow Netflix members to stream movies and TV show episodes over Wi-Fi at no additional fee and with no advertisements or trailers. The proposed application would also include the ability to fast-forward, rewind, pause and watch content again. Last fall Netflix CEO Reed Hastings told Reuters that an iPhone application is “likely to come over time” but that the company was not yet focusing on mobile solutions. Netflix has previously used surveys like this prior to releasing support for other platforms such as the PS3 and Wii. [via TechCrunch]

  1. Oh yeah! This will be great! I can just sit down in a starbucks where there is wifi and just stream a movie! Now before you say, what no 3g! Consider this: at&t are the ones that are restricting it, not apple! And considering that apple uped the 3g download limit to 20mb, and the fact that the Ipad comes unlocked, is suggesting apple may be looking to moving on with at&t. Speaking about the Ipad, you could stream 720p on it with netflix because it has a higher screen resolution! Now, I am not getting an Ipad, nor fully support it, but netflix would be awesome. I somehow don’t think apple will approve it though, because they would lose money.
