Netflix (http://www.netflix.com), the online movie rental service, is apparently eyeing an iPhone/iPad streaming app.
According to the Hacking Netflix web site (http://www.hackingnetflix.com/2010/03/netflix-survey-hints-at-iphone-streaming-via-wifi.html), a Netflix survey has this to say: “”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?”
You can then vote on Very Likely, Somewhat Likely, Neither Likely nor Unlikely, Somewhat Unlikely or Very Unlikely.
