Netflix Now On iPhone

As Blockbuster is heading for Chapter 11, Netflix is making headlines the right way. You can now stream Netflix on your iPhone and iPod Touch. For subscribers with an $8.99 plan or higher, the app is available at “no additional cost.” The app is available over Wi-Fi or 3G. If you stop the stream it will resume where you left off. You can even resume playback on another device, say a video game console like the PS3 or Wii.

Netflix has been making great strides lately. Even if it bowed down to some of the larger movie studios who mistakenly think a 30 day delay will improve sales, Netflix is clearly showing it has what it takes to survive. Blockbuster can’t claim anything of the sort. Netflix is available in a number of places already, and the list is consistently growing. Once it hits Android, Netflix will be hard to displace. From all appearances the Android version is forthcoming. How do you use Netflix? I currently have it on disc, Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, and of course streaming on my laptop. There are DVD players and even televisions that come with the app too. Are you excited about the iPhone version? Let me know in the comments.
