Coming Soon To An iPhone Near You:  Netflix

Coming Soon To An iPhone Near You: Netflix

By Tim Martin

Thinking about buying an iPad just so you can have access to watch streaming content from Netflix? Well hold off forking out $500 plus if you already have an iPhone or iPod Touch.

Steve Swasey, VP of Corporate Communications blogged this on Netflix`s official blog:

"Steve Swasey, VP of Corporate Communications, here. Terrific response to our news today about Netflix on the iPad. For those of you asking whether Netflix will be on the iPhone and iPod Touch: We wouldn`t invite you to dinner without planning to serve dessert. In other words, we`re working on it so stay tuned."

This is great news in my opinion, but something I wonder; will the movies be streaming over the already congested AT&T 3G network or will you only be able to access Netflix content using Wifi only? I am hoping it will work over 3G so I can watch movies and TV shows anywhere without having to worry about a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Netflix charges $4.99 per month for two hours worth of streaming video or $8.99 for unlimited which includes DVDs by mail if you choose also.
