Netflix now available on your iPhone and iPod touch

Jamie Odell, director of product management, here. We hinted at a free Netflix App for the iPhone and iPod touch in April, announced it in June and I’m happy to share that it is available now! If you want to instantly watch TV episodes and movies on your iPhone or iPod touch, all you need to do is get the free Netflix App from the App Store at http://iTunes.com/apps/netflix and have a Netflix membership starting at $8.99 a month. What’s the first thing you’ll watch via your iPhone or iPod touch.

  3. When will there be Android?

  4. Awesome! Been wanting this for a while now!

  5. YAY!

    Now work equally as hard to finally offer captions on instant watching, ok?

    Thanks netflix!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Congratulations! I'm sure the team is very proud of this accomplishment!

  7. Many thanks, been eagerly waiting for iPhone version this summer. But, no support for video out so i can hook up to my TV?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Well, with PDK, this should be a relatively easy port to WebOS (palm) and I would also assume android. So please, netflix, lets not play only with the idevice fanboys and let the rest of us in on some love.

    that is all.

    ReplyDelete
  9. What about Android?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Android, please.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I will never leave the bathroom at work now. yay

    ReplyDelete
  12. Please develop for Android! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks guys! We've been looking forward to this!

    ReplyDelete
  14. There won't be an Android app; it would mean somehow (with flash or otherwise) making netflix work in a linux environment, which the company has severely resisted.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you! You guys are doing great!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Why can't I use this app to manage my DVD queue? Streaming video is good, but I can't see myself using it much on a handheld device. I was hoping to be able to manage my DVD queue via your app. I'd get much more use out of it if I were able to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm a webOS user who would very much appreciate a Netflix streaming app.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Please support video out! Please! I do not have cable TV and would love to stream NetFlix content to my TV by way of my phone.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Awesome!!! Though- as said above, it would be nice if we could browse DVDs and edit our DVD queue as well.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Very cool. Now Android, please!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's kind of shocking that this doesn't support queue management (adding, deleting, reording - and especially DISC queue). I care much more about good queue management for my account than the ability to stream to my phone. I'll use streaming a couple of times a year. I'd use queue management daily if it worked.

    I don't doubt that you moved mountains to make streaming work properly, and kudos to you all for that, but since it's seemingly at the expense of queue management this app leaves a lot to be desired.

    ReplyDelete
  23. YES!!!!!

  24. I am disappointed that an app so widely touted by Apple does not support the accessibility functions of IS4, particularly VoiceOver. I don't know how many visually impaired subscribers you have or how many would use your service in conjunction with IS devices, but I'm surely not the only one.

    Nonetheless, I am happy to see Netflix on iPhone and iPod touch, something to be proud of on the part of all involved. I will try to find workarounds to maximize my own use of the app, and hope to see its accessibility improve in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Another plea for Android! Pretty please :-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awesome! Love it on my iPad, when can we expect to see Android support?

    At the pace it's going there will soon be more Android devices out there than IOS ones:

    Android market share eclipses iPhone
    Android Market Share Swells 886%
    Android Grabs 13% Market Share

    ReplyDelete
  27. YOU SUCK, put this on android.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Why did they leave out the Gay and Lesbian Genre (among others)?

    ReplyDelete
  29. OMG it's awesome looks so nice on the iphone 4. I am totally keeping netflix after the free trial just for old movies and tv shows. It's crystal clear, I think I prefer it over my laptop.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The corners cut in this app are very apparent once one starts to use it. No Retina Display support for the UI (you can see that the Netflix logo, the tab buttons, misc icons, etc are all pixelated). The scrolling is obviously non-native - it's jumpy, shows no bar when scrolling, and is generally not anywhere near the level of responsiveness and smoothness users expect from an iOS app.

    This was obviously a rush job. Hopefully it gets an extensive makeover and retooling in a future update.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have been waiting for this app to use with my Microvision ShowWX pico projector. I can project itunes movies and the quality is excellent. However, i cannot use the projector with the Netflix iPhone app. Very dissipointing. Why is this not possible?

    ReplyDelete
  32. First of all I have netflix streaming on my ps3 and would love an Android app for my nexus one, is there anything in the works?

    ReplyDelete
  33. These comments are very entertaining. The iOS version was announced months ago. Nothing has been said about Android or other mobile devices.

    ReplyDelete
  34. it'd be real nice if I could log in to Netflix on the iPod touch. Very disappointed not to be able to get in!

    ReplyDelete
  35. No DVD queue management??? Seems like a pretty basic feature set to leave out that I would guess most users were expecting.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am very excited about the Netflix app on the iPhone! I downloaded this morning. I am disappointed that the "Gay & Lesbian" genre is left off of the genre options. I hope that was a mistake and not intentional... and that an update will come soon to add this genre, which is available through the online service.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Please add video out functionality! PLEASEEEEEE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I personally don't think I'll ever stream a movie on my iPhone - who wants to watch on such a tiny screen? I'm really disappointed that after all this hoopla about the Netflix app, it's all about instant play and does not support DVD queue management. Why is Netflix making its customers have to rely on 3rd party apps for this essential need? Makes no sense to me at all...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Another vote for video out please! I want to be able to hook up to my picoprojector for mobile large screen experience!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Excellent!

    Caltrain + Netflix App = Buffy Season 2, here I come!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yeah, yeah... When will the service be available on Android??

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah, Yeah... When will it be available on Android???

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yeah, Yeah... When will it be available on Android???

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah, Yeah... When will it be available on Android???

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hopefully now you can focus on Android.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Please Support video out on an ipod touch! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why iphone version before Android, when Android has a larger market share of new phones? Come on, Netflix. Android NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  48. If I'm hanging out with someone and they're telling me abotu a movie, I'd like to be able to add it to my netflix queue with this app. Please allow access to one's netflix account beyond just instant watch

    ReplyDelete
  49. This will be fun for watching Rocky & Bullwinkle in bed, since my wife won't watch it with me!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thank you. Been looking forward to this. (Actually been using the ipad app on my ipod touch for awhile now.)


    As a user of both platforms.

    As a user of both platforms, however, I would also like to use it on our Droid and Droid X. Glad to see you've put out ads for Android developers... hope to see something soon.

    ReplyDelete
  51. No Video Out for iPhone but it is available for iPad?

    Booooooo!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Where's the Android love? More Android devices sold last month than iPhone.

    ReplyDelete
  53. A WebOS version of this app would be greatly appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Now that is over, time to get serious and make it available for ANDROID. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. lots of bugs, including not letting me login... ever

    ReplyDelete
  56. One of the worst looking apps. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I stream way more stuff from Netflix than I watch on disc, so really excited to get this app. Unfortunately, all I get is a gray screen with nothing on it after the splash. Running iOS4. Never jailbroken. Anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Just installed and tested it over 3G. Works great.
    Many thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  59. RE: "There won't be an Android app... in a linux environment, which the company has severely resisted."

    Roku box is Linux based like android and is supported by NetFlix.

    ReplyDelete
  60. "it's all about instant play and does not support DVD queue management."

    Netflix DVD queue can already be managed online, see http://mobile.netflix.com

    ReplyDelete
  61. First, there is a separate Netflix Queue Manager app for free, so stop harping about it not being there. Second, you droid lovers don't spend a lot of money. The Apple folks do. So, you have to wait. But if you have a droid, you're in a constant state of waiting anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am using this app on the touch and I can log in and watch videos just fine. Thanks Netflix. Now I can watch some things while hubby is playing games and using the computer at the same time. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  63. You do know that the Android OS has outpaced the iPhone and Windows Mobile as of a few months ago, right?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Please update the app to full support the iPhone 4 Retina Display. The icons and text looks awful.

    ReplyDelete

    My BlackBerry wants Netflix

    ReplyDelete
  66. It works great -- just watched a movie while spinning at the gym. So glad it doesn't require WiFi like FaceTime. We'll see how AT&T's network holds up!

    Only disappointment is that it doesn't support the digital port RGB connector for video/ audio. Connects to car stereo just fine for sound, but not to TV for video and audio.

  67. --Generic, anonymous, whining comment to go here--

    ReplyDelete
  68. I've been looking forward to this... but it doesn't work on my 2nd gen iPod Touch. Blank screen after the splash... anyone has the same experience?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Glad to see the app is finally here!! Only issue I have is that I cannot access my queue with it. I hope there will b an update soon. I still have to go to my computer or the internet on my Iphone to search and update my queue. Please fix! THX!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Is there a date for an app on the XMB of the PS3. I'm getting tired of inserting the disk to stream videos.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm also getting a blank gray screen on launch. I have an iPhone 4, not jail broken.

    ReplyDelete
  72. They should not waste time with DVD queue management when there are plenty of 3rd party apps for that purpose already.

    Video out would be awesome but could be a pain if they used an MPMoviePlayerController (which does not support video out on os 3.0) as they would have a fairly significant rewrite on their hands.

    Android is of course a good idea but don't overestimate current marketshare. iPod, iPad, and iPhone still crush Android at this time. It is Android's growth that is dangerous.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Awesome! Very excited to use this. I've been struggling for months over how to add movies to my queue from my iPhone.

    ReplyDelete
  74. works great. how about an Android app?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Android please...I mean, NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Strength in numbers- gotta echo the "Android please" requests.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Looks like an update to the enabled browsers for Computers may also be needed since Google Chrome just crossed into the 7 series this week.

    ReplyDelete
  78. great job thank you, i dont have a androit i have and iphone but the people is right bring it to all the phones its better for you netflix and better for all of us the netflix fans.

    good job

    ReplyDelete
  79. How do you set up your account on the iPod Touch? I just get a blank gray screen after opening the Netflix app. Do you have to activate the iPod like you do for other devices?

    ReplyDelete
  80. Wow. The iPhone version is even better than the iPad version. Crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I too am getting a gray screen when I open up the app. I have an iPod Touch 2nd Gen, 16 GB. It's just standing still once the splash page goes to the gray screen.

    ReplyDelete
  82. ..... tv out. Please, it is what makes it worth it to me.. so pointless to have it on an iphone with out it. Think about it, a small, portable device that can output to any tv when your traveling, unless it's netflix.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Very nice work. Now could you bring it to Android, please?

    ReplyDelete
  84. My iPod touch is 2nd gen, 8GB - gray screen and nothing else. This sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Very cool!

    I'd appreciate it though if you could add some sort of buffering support. Especially when using 3G! I'd be happy to wait a little longer for the video to start if I could avoid stuttering during playback.

    ReplyDelete
  86. android sucks and its crap

    ReplyDelete
  87. Please add a TV output feature. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  88. It wouldn't look as good on an android. iphone 4 has a kick azz screen res.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Good Job Netflix. Now I do not own any Apple Devices as they tend to be too easy to use but limited in functionality, so is there going to be an incarnation of this app in the android / other open platforms world?

    ReplyDelete
  90. You android people are pathetic. Your POS OS is not important. Stop whining for it in an iPhone announcement.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I have an iPod Touch, and this is the one app I really, really wanted. I just loaded it and watched a few minutes of 'Pillars of the Earth.' Worked perfectly.

    I also have a Droid X and it puts the iTouch to shame, much better in every way, so please, please, get the Android app launched!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Works great on my ipod touch... but doesn't work using my JVC TV ipod teledock. Regular ipod videos play directly from ipod to TV screen, but not Netflix vids.... is there some way to make that work?

    ReplyDelete
  93. This is a great app, and I love instant movies, but WHY CAN'T IT PLAY VIDEO THROUGH AN APPLE COMPONENT CABLE? Sound only. Don't understant this, since YouTube and iPod movies / TV shows play great. If I could drive my with instant NetFlix movies that would be spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
  94. "We hinted at a free Netflix App for the iPhone and iPod touch in April, announced it in June and I’m happy to share that it is available now!"

    As awesome as an Android app would be, according to the post they announced an iPhone app 2 months ago, before all those Android sales stats from the last 2 months came out. I'm guessing if it's in the works and hasn't been announced yet, it won't be available anytime soon, despite Android's recent growth.

    ReplyDelete
  95. So does that mean you'll now do a port over to webOS usin the new PDK?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Please make the Starz selections widescreen and HD. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great! I really think you guys need to add more account access like access to your search and regular movies rather then just instant. Plenty of other apps out there for this, but having it in all one package would be great.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I was very excited about this app until I discovered that TV out doesn't work. I would really like that feature.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Great now please bring to Android!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Way to spoil Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Sheesh!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Oh hell yes!

    Excellent app!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Good start, but I wish you would enable different profiles for streaming so I could limit it to PG content for my son's ipod touch. This is a deal-breaker for me.

    ReplyDelete
  103. This is awesome! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Android says hi. Oh wait. Only 2% of smartphone users use Android, so NetFlix won't be giving us the app.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hello, I love streaming but wish you guys would add an easier to find HD category on the site. I would like to easily find HD titles that are available for instant watching.

    You've already made clear that HD is Netflix's future -- treat it as such and give it ample space on your site.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yeah Veronica Mars in the video!!!

  107. " Second, you droid lovers don't spend a lot of money. The Apple folks do. So, you have to wait. But if you have a droid, you're in a constant state of waiting anyway."

    Doesn't matter to a subscription service. Number of potential clients do.

    Been watching netflix via slim player over 4G on a 4.3 screen for a couple of months now on my EVO (DROID). You iphone lovers try to have fun watching streaming movies on the move with att :)

    ReplyDelete
  108. Great app (using iPhone 4). Why no video out support using composite cables? any chance of seeing this in upcoming updates?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Please support video out.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Come boys and girls. With the advent of pico projectors, this app needs video out capability. I can watch an iTunes movie on my iphone connected to a pico projector and they both fit in my pocket.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Man, Android users are even more annoying than us iOS users. And no, Android isn't close to iOS in number of devices in use. It's catching up, but it's not close yet.

    In regards to this app, it's a good first step. The streaming quality is great and looks amazing on iPhone 4, but it badly needs a few things:

    1. TV out. iPad has it and it makes even more sense on the iPhone and iPod Touch. Being able to watch any streaming Netflix titles anytime you have a TV and some cables is a killer app.

    2. Optimize the iPhone version quickly. There are probably less than 10 UI images to update for retina display support. What's up with the janky, non-native scrolling? It's super slow/sticky and there's no scrollbar to show you where you are in the list. Just use the built in list view.

    3. Better queue management for both streaming and DVD queues. There are several 3rd party apps that do this much better than you guys, which is kind of embarrassing.

    Please make this the one stop, definitive Netflix app it deserves to be.

    ReplyDelete
  112. to everyone asking about queue management. theres another app for that. or just wait for them to update this one. give some time and perhaps even some thanks to these guys for christs sake, instead of gaping maws with new demands. to android users: get to the back of the bus boys - thats what you signed up for.

    ReplyDelete
  113. So I downloaded the app on my iphone 3g. When I launch the app everything works fine. I had no issues logging in and I was immediately able to browse through my instant queue. But whenever I try to play a movie it shows that it's loading but nothing happens - then it takes me back to the home screen. I've tried many different movies and shows but still nothing. I tried it on both 3g and WiFi (both with good signal) and still nothing. It just show that its loading and sometimes it shows like its gonna play but only for a split second then back to the home screen. I even tried reinstalling and rebooting my iphone but still nada. Please fix this. I see from the reviews on the app store that I'm not the only one with this problem. I love Netflix and I have it on my Xbox, PS3 and my Wii and never had any issues, Please release an update I REALLY want to watch movies on the go!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Can't get the app to go past the log in screen. Bummer!

    Please provide CLOSED CAPTIONING for watch instantly!! Half your selection is set so low I can't hear what's going on.

  115. Great, but a WebOS version would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  116. very lame that TV out is not working, is this a bug or by design???

    ReplyDelete
  117. Unrelated to this app...

    would like to see categorizing items in instant queue. subfolders for genres for individuals' interests of movies and tv shows. either via web or streaming devices :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. I think this app is great but when will it be coming to Android phones!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. THANKS NETFLIX TEAM!!! I have been waiting for this all summer! Now I have yet another reason to recommend Netflix to people. However, I have a couple recommendations and didn't know where to put them. Please list the expiration dates of all items in my instant queue (on the computer is fine not necessarily in the app) or at least give me like 30-90 days notice for an item before it expires. Some are tv shows and I don't have enough time to watch them all before they expire. Also maybe more warning for movies or shows that will become unavailable in my disc queue. Other than that Netflix is golden!

    ReplyDelete
  120. In this day and age, how can you release an iFanboy app but no Droid app (the common person phone)???

    ReplyDelete
  121. when will it be available for Android :( WAAAH WAAAH

    haha babies. iPhone RULES!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Alright now i have a new reason to sit in the supply closet at work instead of actually working!!! Good Job Netflix at lowering productivity everywhere... seriously though this is so sweeeeet!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Doesn't work on my 2g iPod Touch either. Lame. Just a grey screen.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Please post the iPhone/pod video quality; dimensions, bit/s, avg. total file sizes.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I would love to try this app but can't because your servers keep timing out when I try to log in. I gave the app one star and reported the app to Apple for having bugs.

    What ever happened to do something right or don't do it at all?

    ReplyDelete
  126. Mines not working. Getting "sorry we could not reach the netflix service. " Error 105 Any resolution?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Video out please.... just like youtube and apple videos. We hook it to the tv in hotels or the car's entrainment system so kids can watch a movie when we travel, or on our boat or to our Microvision Laser Projector..

    ReplyDelete
  128. Video chokes an restarts movie every ten seconds

    ReplyDelete
  129. LOL @ all the Android fanboys. Jealous much? How pathetic is it for you to seek out any and all avenues to start up android vs. iphone arguments??? WHO CARES HOW MUCH PHONE A vs. PHONE B SOLD LAST MONTH? This blog was meant as an announcement of an application launch that has been in the works for a long time. It has NOTHING to do with your stupid phones. Just go away, thanks. Now back to streaming movies on my iPhone 4!

    ReplyDelete
  130. amazing app! works flawlessly on my iphone4 :-) sorry to those who are experiencing problems with it, i wish you the best of luck in resolving the issue(s). perhaps try rebooting the phone/reinstalling the app? sorry, wish i had more to offer. thanks for this netflix!

    ReplyDelete
  131. I’m also getting the message: “Sorry we could not reach the Netflix service.”

    Probably because I’m on the old old plan for $4.99/mo. Two disks a month, one at a time, limited streaming. Guess it’s time to update to the $8.99/mo plan.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Great. Now linux, please.

    ReplyDelete
  133. SCREAMS! I have been wanting this for so long, I didn't even know it was in the works and randomly found out just as it was announced by googling! I'm going on a 14hr road trip next weekend and this will definitely be a lifesaver!

    All you haters to the left. Especially the Android users.

    ReplyDelete
  134. This is great that we are developing mobile applications. How about Android next--you know it's the best selling mobile OS in the US right?

    ReplyDelete
  135. way to go dude - congrats!!!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I like this app but it's only half of Netflix. I have been waiting patiently for this app for a while, knowing it was only a matter of time until Netflix had to create an iPhone app. In the meantime I grabbed iPhlix and was fairly happy with it despite its somewhat clunky UI (I chalked this up to having to deal with an API instead of having direct access to the data). iPhlix was great, if you wanted to manage the queues but no streaming. When I grabbed the Netflix app last night I thought, great, I can dump iPhlix AND also be able to stream movies when I'm stuck in an airport. Alas, I soon discovered that all I could do is stream movies and only technically manage the instant queue, this being a by-product of being able to stream instant movies but to do so I have to pick a movie and click the add/remove rom instant queue button. then go back a screen to remove another movie. On the iPhone I find I do far more queue management then anything else. I might be talking to a friend and they happen to mention a movie, so being able to look up the film and add it to my queue would be far more useful then streaming films that I'd only watch if out somewhere where I'm stuck and can't really do much else (airport layover, car repair center waiting on lengthy fix, etc.). Add queue management and you'd have a 4 star app on your hands. Fix the multi-tasking issue on iOS4 and you'd have a 5 star app.

    ReplyDelete
  137. This is great, but it doesn't work for me. I hit play movie, it says loading moving, then goes back to the selection screen.

  139. Practically unconscionable that video out was not supported -- I've been waiting for months for just this feature!

    ReplyDelete
  140. Thank you very much! It works fantastically on my iPhone 4 over 3G, maybe even faster than on my DSL at home?

    ReplyDelete
  141. How about adding video out capabilities? For us who travel?

    ReplyDelete
  142. Unable to play video on jailbroken 3gs. Click play, goes to red screen for a few seconds, then back to video details.

    ReplyDelete
  143. You all *must* be working on video out. Is this a Roku thing - don't want the iPhone to compete? C'mon folks, provide your subscribers with this obvious function or we'll move on to another service that will.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Cool. Could Netflix please bring their streaming service to linux?

    ReplyDelete
  145. Is there an issue with others with iPhone 3GS? Even when connected through wi-fi it buffers a ton. Not sure why but it is unwatchable.

    ReplyDelete
  146. This app works great thus far. It does what it supposed to. Though video out would be a fantastic addition to this app for traveling and group viewing experiences. I figured it would have come with it since the I pad app has it. Maybe the next go around though. Thanks!

  149. Netflix will NOT play on iPhone 3g with iOS 4

  150. Yep, that's right, it doesn't work on iPhone 3g.

  151. I can't access my instant queue through the app. Anybody else having this problem? I can watch movies and search, but there is no icon for my queue. My friend downloaded the app on his iPhone and it works fine. I have a 32gb iPod Touch.

    Help! I'm tried reinstalling the app, restarting my iPod but nothing has worked!

  152. Wow...the Android fangirls have their panties in a wad over this.

  153. I watched one movie on my Ipod Touch 2G. It then said status change, and went to a gray screen. It now just goes to a gray screen everytime I load it.

  154. Very nice. Please also update the app so a person can manage DVD queue as well. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  155. It works great on my iPod Touch. Except for the lack of support for video out...I'd love to see that as a priority!

    Android isn't going to happen until there's a secure streaming method for that platform. Not Netflix's problem.

  156. I am getting a greyish screen and nothing else. The app did work well one time only. What seems to be the problem? Anybody else experiencing this? Thank you.

  157. This is awesome, thanks a bunch.

  158. It should be a lot easier for the developers to support closed captioning than in other devices or Silverlight. The iPhone video options are inherently CC friendly. Apple even released some sample code (ClosedCaptionImporter, http://bit.ly/90xe7v) to help with CC importing.

  159. Hopefully once an android version comes out it will load past the white screen and do something. It's nice to have a netflix icon on my ipod touch, but an app on my droid that played video would be even better.

    ReplyDelete
  160. This is great! Thanks! Works great on my iTouch! Please bring support to output to my TV with the apple component cable!!!! Its so much easier to hook up the iTouch to the TV than dragging out the laptop and plugging it in.

    ReplyDelete
  161. This is cool, thanks Netflix. Amusing that I can now watch instantly on my wimpy little iPod Touch, yet have never been able to on my Powerbook G4. Although it sounds like video output is not possible? This kind of defeats the purpose for me, there's no way I'm watching something on that tiny screen for 25 minutes, let alone 90. If you let me plug it into my TV I could finally make use of this big part of my subscription I've never been able to enjoy before.

  162. FINALLY...
    Better late than never, though...
    We love Netflix...

  163. Android please. Android OS has a larger market share than iOS (and growing daily). So doooo eeeeeeeeeet!

  164. Wow- iPhone vs. Android causes people to get really crabby. Nobody said take it away from iPhone. And I'm pretty sure nobody taking the time to post here has a major financial stake in the outcome...as if developing it for Droid would hurt Apple.

    Here's to everyone getting what they want! Which for me means a future version on Droid to match the cool iPhone version.

  165. Well done. Great Ap and a great service. Thank you

  166. Well I downloaded the app to my iPhone 4. It downloaded, then installed and is now trying to load. But it just says Loading... going on 10 minutes. Haven't even got the app to start up yet. Boo

  168. CAN WE SEE THE CAPTIONS???? PROBABLY NO!!!! NETFLIX DOES NOT SEEM TO CARE THAT THEY HAVE LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS... PAYING... MEMBERS THAT ARE DEAF OR HEARING IMPAIRED. THEY IGNORE THE DEAF/HEARING IMPAIRED COMMUNITY BECAUSE IT COSTS THEM A LITTLE MORE TO BE ADA COMPLIENT!!! THEY DO NOT ADDRESS OUR CONCERNS. THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T CARE AS LONG AS THE TAXES ARE PAID. NETFLIX AS SO MUCH AS TOLD US WE ARE NOT WORTH THE ADDED COST!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  169. I hope they never release this for Droid... that is such a iOS Mimic device. If you want first dibs drop the zero and get with a HERO. The iPhone will always get apps first because it's wide usage. Keep dreaming Droid dreamers!

  170. On the 9$ unlimited streaming here and still cannot access it from my phone. Getting the error 105 also here. Netflix.. help fix this for YOUR CUSTOMERS

    ReplyDelete
  171. Anyone else have a problem, where you choose a movie to watch, that says it is instant, then when it comes up to pick a episode none are available? I tried this with Babylon 5, none will play if you need an example, yet they are streamable everywhere else. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  172. Not sure if this is for an iPhone 3G or not? I'm guessing not? On mine it plays about the first 5 seconds of a movie and then just stops and restarts. It just sits there doing it over and over. It does this on WiFi or 3G so it's not a connection speed issue.

    ReplyDelete
  173. sorry, yes my phone is a 3g. I think i found what may be part of the issue. if yer trying to stream a show that is in yer queue, but you have never watched anything on it it sometimes doesn't work. i was able to fix the Babylon 5 issue by watching 2 sec on my comp, then it came up fine on my app. odd.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Nice first try for the NetFlix app, but without supporting video output to TV over the iPod RCA cable this app is nothing more than a toy. I look forward to the day it becomes actually usable when support for video output is added. Also I share others interest in mobile queue management features being available from the app.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Wow, thanks for that tip Babylon 5 Anonymous person! =D Turns out if you watch around the first minute or so online on another device and then give Netflix's website a few minutes to update and save your place you can then go to your iPhone 3G and hit resume and it'll start playing perfectly. Very odd, but it works!

  179. Love it... Though I wish it had a bit more que management in the app itself.. O well... Btw if anything else of you guys complaining about que management you can always check out Netflix mobile

  181. Bring this to Android please, as fast as possible!

  182. I know others have mentioned it, please, please, please support video out!!!! I use netflix as a way to save money by not having cable. an ipod size screen is too little.

  186. The app works pretty good over 3g. Performance on Iphone 4 and Iphone 3g are good. I have 2 Ipod touch one 16gb and one 8gb and the 16gb works great, the 8gb goes to white screen after the Netflix banner. This is my only criticism so far.

    ReplyDelete
  187. I'm really excited for this product, but I really wish that Netflix profiles supported Instant Queues. My son has an iPod touch, but I'd prefer for him to have a separate queue to mine so that he doesn't have to scroll through all of my stuff just to find his, and vice-versa.

    This is, honestly, the only problem I have with the Netflix service. Keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  188. I'm thrilled to finally see this app, but the lack of parity between the iPad and iPhone versions is really frustrating. The iPhone lets me add items to my instant queue but can't access my disc queue. The iPad app lets me manage my disc queue and watch instantly but I can't add items to my instant queue.

    Given that most Netflix interfaces for TV's lack search and queue management, these features seem to be a no brainer. I'd love to see them added in an update so I can give my 3rd party management apps the boot.
