Netflix comming to the iPhone?

Netflix recently sent out a survey to select members that specifically asked if members would like to be able to stream Netflix from their iPhone. Netflix has been steadily expanding its business from DVD’s to instant streaming to a computer, to streaming on the Xbox, Playstation 3, and even the Wii. Now the rumors are that it will be unlikely that AT&T will let us use Netflix over 3G, so it will likely be over Wifi which I feel is fine for now.

Survey text as follows:

“Imagine that Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on their iPhone. The selection availability to instantly watch includes some new releases, lots of classics and TV episodes. There are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, rewind, and pause or watch again. The movies & TV episodes you instantly watch are included in your Netflix membership for no additional fee.

Whenever you want to instantly watch content on your iPhone, your iPhone must be connected to a Wi-Fi network (such as one you might have at home or at work, or in public places like coffee shops, book stores, hotels, airports, etc.)

If this functionality were available, how likely would you or someone in your household be to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on your iPhone via a Wi-Fi network?” (Source:

According to, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings told Reuters that an iPhone app would not be released in the near future. Heres hoping. Whats you opinion, would you like to see it?
