We all wanted it and we all got it, Netflix on the iPad has been a hit. With over 12 million subscribers, Netflix has made instant streaming available on the iPad and has nailed it on the first try. The clarity of the streaming video is amazing, and sound is great too! I didn’t think they would be able to pull it off as well as they did, but man I am glad I was wrong.
The Netflix app is free from the iTunes app store, once downloading it you can start streaming immediately (assuming you have a Netflix account) by logging into your Netflix account. I started out by watching Angels and Demons, and the quality was stupendous, I could not have asked for more. The battery did not lose much power when the movie had ended either, maybe 5-10% battery life (wifi iPad). I do recommend the Netflix iPad app for anyone with an iPad and a Netflix account.
