Netflix On iOS Now With HD Streaming And AirPlay

The new Netflix iOS app adds two features that we know you will enjoy: HD and AirPlay.

We know many of you watch Netflix on your iPhone and iPad. The updated Netflix iOS app will stream Netflix in HD on any iOS 7 device. Make sure you are watching a title that’s available in HD and have a fast enough Internet connection.


With our latest app, you can now also start streaming over AirPlay. This new feature is very simple and works on all iOS 7 devices:
  • Choose a title to watch on your iPhone or iPad and start playback 
  • If there is an Apple TV device connected to the same Wifi network, an AirPlay icon appears 
  • Press the AirPlay icon and playback will move to your Apple TV



Use your iPhone or iPad as a remote control for the Apple TV during AirPlay. You can pause, seek, select audio or subtitles and stop playback from your iPhone or iPad.

To make this even easier use the lock screen functionality (iOS 7) in our new iOS app during AirPlay. And you can continue to use other apps like email on your phone while using Airplay with Netflix.

If you’ve updated your app and don’t yet see HD or AirPlay, please be patient. The features will roll out to all members who have the latest Netflix app (version 5.0) by mid-October.

Netflix Unveils a New iPad App

Starting today, Netflix members can enjoy a newly redesigned experience for the iPad that makes it much easier to discover and instantly watch TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix.

I'm Zal Bilimoria, and I'm a product manager at Netflix where I lead product innovation for mobile devices. The new app is really a big step forward; it is much more immersive and provides greater focus on our growing catalogue by displaying twice as many titles than the previous interface. In addition, through optimization for touch-enabled tablets, Netflix members can now swipe through rows and rows of titles featuring larger artwork.


Members can enjoy the new Netflix interface on their iPad with iOS 5 by upgrading to the latest version of the Netflix App, available as a free download from the App Store, which will be rolling out to all users in the coming weeks.


More News

And there's more news. Starting today, Netflix members in Latin America can enjoy unlimited TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix on their Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or on their HD TV with Apple TV.


Also, Netflix "Just for Kids" is now available on Apple TV, providing a section that offers a broad selection of TV shows and movies for children 12 and under. You can read more about "Just for Kids" in Todd Yellin's original blog post when we first introduced the section in August.

iPad User Experience Update

Hi, this is Jamie, director of product management. We've recently updated the user experience on our iPad streaming app. The app enables you to instantly watch all the TV shows and movies available for streaming from Netflix right on your iPad or iPhone. With Apple's video out cables, you can even connect your iPad directly to your TV. The app is available for free from the iOS App Store.

The new interface provides quick access to the vast selection of TV shows and movies and makes it easy to continue watching something, even if you started watching on a different device. Recommended titles can be found on the home screen, or you can browse popular genres or search to find titles to watch instantly. This new experience was designed specifically for streaming on touch-based devices.

Members can access the full Netflix website via Mobile Safari at www.netflix.com. From the website, members with DVD plans can manage their DVD Queue. Members can also visit the account area, and even choose TV shows or movies to watch instantly via the Netflix streaming app.

Netflix comes to Apple TV

Bill Holmes here, VP of business development.

Today Steve Jobs unveiled the new second-generation Apple TV, which includes streaming instantly from Netflix at no additional charge to Netflix members.

This is the third significant announcement this year about a Netflix collaboration with Apple. First came the introduction in April of a Netflix app for iPad, which was followed a few weeks ago by an app for iPhone and iPod touch. We couldn’t be more pleased than to be in partnership with Apple to enable you to instantly watch movies and TV shows from Netflix on these groundbreaking devices.

Of course, we’re continuing to work on more devices and platforms to reach our goal of being ubiquitous on every screen on which you’d want to watch movies and TV episodes streamed instantly from Netflix.

The new Apple TV brings this goal even closer.

Enjoy!
Bill
