Netflix iPad App Now Supports Video-Out Feature

Ever since its debut, I’ve been an avid user of the Netflix app for iPad, which is available at no cost. Initially, my only gripe was the inability to connect my iPad to a TV or projector using the Apple Dock Connector to VGA Adapter.

Today, my disappointment turned to joy as Netflix rolled out an update to the app, now at version 1.0.2. This update introduces support for video output through not only the VGA adapter but also through component and composite video cables.

This enhancement allows users to stream films directly from their iPad to a projector, VGA monitor, or any television equipped with component or composite inputs. While the output resolution may not match that of an HDTV, the upgrade significantly boosts the app’s utility and cool factor.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to end this discussion here and dive into the plethora of Netflix movies with ratings of four stars or above, all available for instant viewing.
