Netflix for iOS Updated with New iPad Interface

netflix ipad
Following up on last month's promise that it would be launching an updated user interface for its iPad application, Netflix has just updated its universal iOS app to version 2.0. The new update brings the updated iPad interface, compatibility with new streaming services in Latin America, and several other improvements.

New in Netflix v 2.0

1. Netflix now available in Latin America for iPhone and iPad
2. New iPad UI for all regions - US, Canada, Latin America - requires upgrade to iOS 5
3. Addressed stability issues
4. For support questions please contact us at mobilesupport@netflix.com

As Netflix previously noted when the revised interface debuted on Android tablets, the app now displays twice as many movies and TV shows as with the old interface, making it easier for users to discover new content to add to their Instant Queues.

Netflix is a free download, but requires a monthly subscription to Netflix's streaming service.

(Thanks, Arthur!)

I tried Netflix when I got the new AppleTV that supported it.

I had it for about 10 months or so and I spent more time navigating the interface looking for something to watch than I actually spent watching.

Their selection just wasn't worth $8/month to me.
I can rent 2 current movies from iTunes for almost the same price.

Guess you don't have kids .... For just me and my wife it probably wouldn't be worth it ... but my kids make heavy use of the streaming and it's so much cheaper than buying all the DVD's (and renting would be way way more expensive since kids watch movies over and over again).

So, I agree, there is for many people limited use of streaming, but for some it means great savings.

I’m disappointed in Netflix’s streaming movie selection (especially compared to their awesome DVD library), but their selection of streaming TV series is another matter. I’m seriously thinking of getting Netflix again for that. It beats a huge cable bill, I can watch any time with no schedule or recording... and no ads!

Great value for $8

I have a love/hate relation with Netflix, sometimes I am so into them, sometimes I actually freeze my membership for months at a time.

That said, for just $8 you get a very good selection. Yes it is very thin on the blockbuster / popular movie front, but the kids selection is great, documentaries are very recent, and foreign / indy movies are fantastic. Thanks to Netflix I discovered and watched incredible movies that I didn't know existed.

Wow. I'm loving the new interface. It's so much easier to browse now. I find it even faster to browse than on Netflix's website.

Regarding the price, I think $8 a month is a steal. If you watch 2 movies a month, you've already got your money's worth. Sure, there's a lot of crap, but there are also a lot of hidden gems I've stumbled upon thanks to Netflix's suggestions for me based on my viewing history.

Too bad Netflix's selection is so bad in Canada. Almost no recent movies, lots of missing older movies and mostly crappy TV series.
I find their selection is good, and I've been using Netflix for 10 months. I honestly have a hard time keeping up with all the new content.

Too bad 800,000 people won't see it. If they just merge the one DVD a month and the streaming back into one package, I'd come back. OR if they streamed all their movies. The way it is set up now, you HAVE to may 15.00 a month if you want access to the entire library. FAIL.

What, you don't like their seemingly endless selection of streaming direct to video movies starring Dolph Lundgren? ;)

Need an App for Disk Subscribers

I dropped streaming because of the poor selection, but continue to be on the 3 disks at a time plan.

Have you ever visited their website on an iPad? It just generally does not work. Try clicking on a link. Most of the time, the only way to open a link is to press and hold, then open in a new tab. I use my iPad for most of my web browsing, but it is almost impossible to update my selections at Netflix.

Netflix is the only website that I visit that does not seem to work well for the iPad version of Safari.
