WHAT THE F%*^. Still no picture in picture. It's been 9 months including beta. Your the number one streaming app and don't support the headline feature of iOS 9

Gosh! It's honestly the main reason I got an iPad Air 2 over my iPad 4.

Maybe pip is a problem with iOS and not Netflix.

My 3 year old Note 3.

That seems like split-screen and not PiP.

And split-screen and PiP options are offered by iOS now (at least for iPads) so it's up to the app developers to take advantage of them.

You want to watch two Netflix shows on the same screen?
Pip lets you keep the video playing in a small box while you use other apps.

... like the horrendous AppleTV version.
i really don't like how Netflix works on the new Apple TV, it just lets you binge on! It had been bothering me for some time now, as sometimes i fall asleep watching something on Netflix and its just goes on and on, even after the TV goes off. Then I have to wake up and scroll back up to the last episode i remember watching. First world problem, i know... but you'd think that issue would've been resolved by now.
