Netflix Surveying Users About A Streaming iPhone, iPad App

A Netflix app for streaming video on the iPhone may be in the cards if a survey they’re sending to customers is any indication. The company has begun asking their users about their level of interest in an iPhone application that would allow them to stream TV episodes and movies right on their iPhone over a Wi-Fi network. Depending on how people respond, there may be a Netflix app in our future. Assuming, that is, that Apple would allow them to directly compete with the iTunes Store.

The survey reads:

Imagine that Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on their iPhone. The selection availability to instantly watch includes some new releases, lots of classics and TV episodes. There are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, rewind, and pause or watch again. The movies & TV episodes you instantly watch are included in your Netflix membership for no additional fee.

Whenever you want to instantly watch content on your iPhone, your iPhone must be connected to a Wi-Fi network (such as one you might have at home or at work, or in public places like coffee shops, book stores, hotels, airports, etc.)

If this functionality were available, how likely would you or someone in your household be to instantly watch movies & TV episodes on your iPhone via a Wi-Fi network?
