Netflix integrates video-out support to iPad app

Apparently streaming films and TV shows from Netflix on an iPad itself isn't enough. So Netflix has gone ahead and revamped the application with some video-out support.

Besides the usual bug fixes in any software update (apparently this app crashes frequently), Netflix has integrated video-out support via component, composite, and VGA dock connectors in version 1.0.2. Unless there are a bunch of people crowding around that 9.7-inch display, I don't see how this is obligatory but it's a nice addition.

The Netflix for iPad app debuted in April, and it is available for free in the iTunes app store now. Netflix subscriptions, however, are not free, but they start pretty low at $8.99.
