Discover Netflix on Windows 8 (Original)

Microsoft officially launched Windows 8 today. At Netflix we’re very proud of our new Windows 8 application, which delivers a great experience on the new operating system.

Windows 8 is different from previous versions of Windows, it works on both laptops and tablets and it brings the full screen application experience to the PC, so you can enjoy immersive apps like Netflix however you use your computer -- as a tablet, as a laptop, or even connected to your TV.

We tailored the Netflix experience to take advantage of the new features that Microsoft created in Windows 8.

But first, here’s what hasn’t changed:

  • The Netflix streaming application provides access to the same broad array of movies and TV shows that you can find on our website and Netflix applications on other devices
  • You’ll still get the same features such as your Top 10, access to your Instant Queue and the ability to browse all the genres on Netflix

Now, here’s what’s new:

  • You can access the Netflix app on your “Start” screen without needing to go to our Web site. Many new Windows 8 devices will come with Netflix pre-installed so it’s easy to access.

Netflix “Just for Kids” Now on iPad (Original)

My boys are mad about iPad. My youngest will often take the family iPad into his makeshift fort to watch his favorite shows, streaming from Netflix.

I have some good news for my family and yours: Netflix “Just for Kids” is now available on iPad, the first mobile version of this special kid-friendly Netflix experience. Now parents, including myself, can be sure their kids find what they want and won't straggle into something that isn't appropriate.

Netflix “Just for Kids” is filled with movies and TV shows appropriate for kids12 and under, organized in a kid friendly way with large images of their favorite characters and genres such as superheroes, girl power and sing-alongs. Just click the new “Just for Kids” button in the upper left hand side of the Netflix App to enter the section.

Here’s a video introduction to Netflix “Just for Kids” on iPad.


Note: Netflix "Just for Kids" is initially available on iPad 2 and newer iPads, it will come to the original iPad and Android-powered tablets later.

The wait is over. Today I am happy to announce the release of a completely new Netflix experience for Android-powered phones.

More and more of you use Netflix on mobile devices every day. Millions of Netflix members already use their smartphones to instantly watch movies and TV shows anywhere, anytime.

We are always working to improve the experience so Netflix members discover more great titles and watch more.

Compared to the previous version, the new Netflix experience on Android phones is much more immersive. You will see many more titles and galleries than we have ever shown before on a smartphone. It is much closer to the Netflix experience on tablets, which got a major upgrade late last year.

At the top of the new browse screen on Android phones is a row that lets you continue watching shows or movies that you previously started watching right where you left off, a very handy feature. The Instant Queue, available in some regions, is presented on the Home screen just below your Top 10 list. Lower down in the new experience are several personalized rows filled with movie and TV show recommendations.

Tapping the browse menu gives you access to an extensive list of genre galleries that show even more titles organized into categories.…
