Netflix Survey Hints At Instant Watch iPhone App

HackingNetflix is reporting that Netflix has begun surveying customers asking if they would be interested in an application for the iPhone which would allow customers to instantly watch movies anf tv shows without an additional fee.

Here's the full text of the survey:

"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?"

This seems to confirm that Netflix is thinking about providing an app that would allow subscribers access to instant watch movies and tv shows on the iPhone, iPod touch, and possibly the upcoming iPad. I think it would be much cooler if such theoretical application allowed streaming over the air, 3G.
