I’m a big fan of Netflix and have close to maybe 50 movies on my DVD queue, both physical and streaming. I think Netflix is probably one of the greatest businesses of this new millenium. It’s smart, saves consumers money, while making, the once good, renting movies from the store easier.
Just recently, I heard that Netflix is maybe developing an application for the iPhone/iTouch which would allow instant streaming on the devices. What would that do? I speculate that more people would become members of Netflix and that, subsequently, the big 5 movie studios would allow more movie rights to be given to Netflix for instant streaming purposes.
People don’t see the iPhone or the iTouch as just simple phones or music players. Thse devices are entertainment players and everyone wants a piece of them. If Netflix does go through with this, then I’m going to get that app and I’m sure it’s going to be number 1 in the application store in no-time.
