    On the iPod Touch, it's been pretty good. No problems over my wi-fi. Watched Nightmare On Elm St. and no hiccups.

    If you get a youtu.be link for a video the quality is good. Just YouTube has a deal with either AT&T and/or Apple to put up an asstastic encode of videos to keep bandwidth usage down.

    This is bullshit, Apple should be charging a fee to use these on top of Netflix's subscription fee. :mad 

    Totally getting this once I get my iPod touch. :D

    sweet aside for the fact that it eats away at the battery of my 3Gs like its candy.

    bug I'm only mildly excited for it (been pimping the ipad version for a while now)

    Hey guy's. I just upgraded to a new Iphone 4 today and downloaded the Netflix app for it. Since I registered with Netflix two months ago when I got my Xbox, I figured why not?
    Well, it works okay, but the quality of the image is rather poor. It is extremely pixilated and not sure why?
    I know it's being streamed, but it shouldn't be this bad.
    I've synced four movies to it from my Itunes library and their quality is top-notch. So why is the streaming bad?
    We get all of our internet media from satellite and the quality is pretty good on my Xbox.
    How can I make it just as nice on the Iphone? Why would they have an app for the Iphone, if the quality is so poor?

    And yes, the signal strength to the router is excellent.
