Netflix app updated with AirPlay And HD Video

On October 7, 2013


The hugely popular video streaming service Netflix has been updated to their 5th version, the update brings with it HD video and AirPlay to iPads running iOS 7. Other updates include:

What’s New in Version 5.0

* Netflix HD for iOS 7
* AirPlay streaming for iOS 7 (requires disabling AirPlay mirroring)
* Playback optimizations
* Stability improvements

You might be thinking but hey I had HD video in the past as well, but nope you never really did. Furthermore the update brings with it the ability to use Netflix for the Apple TV via native AirPlay streaming.

What’s interesting is the fact that this new update is a new direction for Netflix who in 2011 stated that if people wanted to airplay videos to the Apple TV, they can use the built in app.
