iPad Netflix Streaming

iPad Netflix Streaming – In a deal that is rumored to be very similar to the one that was worked out between Microsoft and Netflix to bring the service to the XBox, it appears as if Netflix will also be making its way to the XBox. It is expected to work in a way that is similar to the way that the XBox allows users to watch television programs on their XBox. Users will be required to update their “queue”, which is supposed to be a list of movies that they are interested in watching. This will allow users to watch the programs on their XBox if Netflix has them available for stream. The streaming library has been growing steadily for a number of years, and now features thousands of titles. Some of the more popular titles that are rumored to be coming to the iPad include Lost, Desperate Housewives and Grey’s Anatomy.

It is rumored that the streaming content will be interrupted by several short commercial breaks throughout the duration of the stream. These breaks will be much shorter than the usual breaks that would interrupt the same shows when they appear on television. The content will be streamed using HTML 5 on the browser. Several other networks have considered allowing their content to be streamed on the iPad, as it would allow them to earn money from the advertising they displayed between streaming sections of the content. It has also been rumored that Hulu will be responding to this news with an app of their own as well. Representatives for both companies have not commented on the rumors that surfaced in recent days linking Apple to a deal with Netflix for their iPad device. If this happens, it will open the door for other video content providers to strike deals with Apple, whose biggest complaint from their users is that streaming video content is not accessible.
