Netflix Adds HD and AirPlay Streaming Support to Apple iOS Apps

Update also supports AirPlay streaming from the cloud

Netflix has updated its apps for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices to support HD video — and now lets users stream video directly to Apple TV set-tops.

The updated iOS app, published Thursday, supports Apple’s iOS 7 operating system, which includes AirPlay streaming directly to an Apple TV from the cloud (so you can use the Netflix app to play titles on the set-top). Previously, AirPlay required streaming video from an iPhone or iPad over Wi-Fi to an Apple TV.

In July, Netflix released an update to its Android app that delivers 1080p HD video for select titles, compatible with Google’s new next-gen Nexus 7 tablet with a higher-resolution screen. At the time, the company said it didn’t have a timetable for HD support on Apple mobile devices.

Separately, last week Netflix changed its policy for delivering higher-quality “Super HD” video, which the company says is comparable to Blu-ray, to all members instead of only those whose broadband providers are part of its content-delivery network. Super HD format is available on most devices that support 1080p playback.
