Strange ... I tried to get a link for the Itunes App and it tells me it is not available in the US. I wonder why that is?
***Edit: it appears that the app has been pulled while they are updating. That's too bad because it is fantastic. Hopefully it will be back soon.
Tough contest between the Netflix app, and Civilization: Revolution (Sid Meier strategy game).
Obviously, I use my iPad primarily for entertainment...
how much is a netflix account and month, and is there any buffering or anything like that?
There isn't much buffering with the Netflix streams, mainly because the iPad has a pitifully small amount of RAM, but with a good connection you get a pretty high quality stream most of the time. They have a trial period if you want to give it a shot and see how well it works. One warning though. If it works well for you chances are you will never get rid of it!
Netflix price went up by $1 last month I believe. It's $9.99 now w/ DVD, and still $2 extra if you want blu-rays. They also introduced a streaming-only subscription, which I think was $7.99 if I recall correctly.
I sure would like to use NetFlix, but I don't like them having open-ended access to my account. So I buy my movies from Apple instead...
