Ipad2 and netflix
I just purchased an ipad2, really a learning experience! I have the Netflix app on my iPad, is there something on the market to select a movie off Netflix and plug into my tv so everyone can watch the movie? When I select a movie from Netflix, does it download (save) to my iPad and take up space? I am really unfamiliar with this high tech stuff, so all help is much appreciated. Many thanks, Laura
One thing Apple sells that will work with your iPad and Netflix is the Apple TV ($99.00, USD). I can attest it's a very handy (and small!) little device that works well with Netflix ... and the iPad. You can use this wirelessly with the iPad2 (and iOS 5).

There are also many non-Apple devices that'll stream Netflix movies to your TV. They don't work with your iPad, however, although you use the same Netflix account. Before I got my Apple TV, I used my Wii gaming device. Very handy. There are many, many such devices out there..
Netflix works by streaming the movie to your iPad. So, no, it's not taking any of your memory. The movie plays and then it's done. There is no having to delete it from the iPad.
Hope some of this helps.
