The Netflix app for iPad is live on the App store

Update: Netflix for iPhone is now available

The Netflix app for iPad is live on the Appstore…

Plenty of people thought this was just an early April Fools joke because, quite frankly, it seemed almost too good to be true. But it is very true. The app is now live in the App Store.Assuming you’re a Netflix member, the new iPad app lets you watch as many movies as you want (assuming they’re available on Netflix’s Watch Instantly service) streaming to the device. Yes, this gives you access to some 20,000+ movies and television shows.

You can also browse movies and manage your queue from the app. And you can even pick up watching them from where you left off on your TV or computer.And since the iPad is currently WiFi-only, you don’t have to worry about streaming over 3G, so performance should be good. It will be interesting to see what happens with this app when the WiFi + 3G models of the iPad hit later this month.And yes, the app is currently iPad-only ? there is no iPhone or iPod touch version. At least not yet.

If you are buying an iPad get a free trial of Netflix to check the App out.
