    I have the Netflix app, but whenever I try to log in, I get an error message that flashes by so fast I can't read it ... two of the words are "allow" and "device" ...

    I do have a Netflix account.

    TIA for any help!

    I think the error is "The device would not allow connection to Netflix" and it's usually caused by a firewall problem. Is this a new problem - i.e. it's worked OK before - or it's the first time you've tried to connect to Netflix using this app?

    Actually it says something about streaming ... like "this application only supports ... streaming ..."

    Do I need a special Netflix account in order to access streaming video? That would totally stink.

    You shouldn't need a separate account if you have one already. I only have the one and have no problems streaming Nflix to my iPad2.

    I use my regular Netflix account to stream to iPad 1 and 2. I've used them with at least three router setups -- mine and others'. No problems.

    It looks like I need the 'Unlimited' account ... I had the cheapest DVD acct (one DVD at a time) and I needed to upgrade to Unlimited ...

    I do not have he unlimited account

    i.e. no DVDs, streaming only, but access Netflix via iPhone, iPad, and computer equally as well. One account only.
