Netflix Coming to the iPhone

While unveiling the new iPhone 4 today, Apple, Inc. chief Steve Jobs was joined by Netflix head Reed Hastings to announce that Netflix streaming is coming to the iPhone this summer.

Speaking at the Worldwide Developers Conference today in San Francisco, CA, Jobs and Hastings detailed plans to bring Netflix to the new iPhone just two months after Netflix launched on Apple’s new iPad.

“There is one feature request we’ve consistently gotten…” Jobs told the crowd in California today, “and I’m happy to announce Netflix for the iPhone coming this summer for free.”

Additional details on the new Netflix app for the iPhone have yet to be announced. The new iPhone 4 will go on sale on June 24, 2010, while the new phone operating system will be available on June 21st. [Eugene Hernandez]
