We’re happy to announce today that we have added many more rows of TV shows and movies to the main screen of our iPad app.
Most iPad users will now have access to 25 or more rows on the main screen of the Netflix App. (Because of platform limitations, users of the original iPad will see only small changes to the rows displayed.)
These new rows will include many more of your favorite genres. All of these were previously available on the iPad, but you had to browse more deeply to find them. With today’s change, more movies and TV shows should be easily accessible without digging around to find them.
the ability to select episodes of a TV show during playback, making it very easy to switch from one episode to another. We also redesigned the audio and subtitle selector on iPad and iPhone.
We hope you enjoy the new experience!

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.
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.
