Netflix Not Offering Video Streaming After All
According to a Q and A session with Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Reuters reports that Netflix has no intention of bringing streaming video to the iPhone. Netflix has instead decided to expand their horizons in the areas of TV-based business and consumer electronics.
Reuters: Any plans to work in partnership with Apple and the iPhone?
Hastings: it’s something that’s likely to come over time. But nothing in the short term. (With) movie watching, we are not focused on mobile yet, but (instead) on the TV, on Blu-ray and on the video game consoles. We will get to mobile eventually, including the iPhone.
The news contradicts prior reports that suggested live video streaming was soon on the way to the iPhone.
