Netflix for iPad now has video-out capabilities The Netflix app for the iPad, one of the top ten most popular apps since the device's launch in April, has been updated this week, giving users one of their most asked-for features.
With version 1.0.2, users can now connect the iPad to a TV and stream the movie or TV show you are watching on the big screen, freeing you from the 9.7-inch iPad display.

You will need to use one of Apple's VGA, component, or composite dock cables.

The quality will not be great, but you can watch the streams at resolutions up to 1024x768.

While the app is free, to use Netflix's "Watch Instantly" catalog, you will need a subscription at $9.99 a month. The adapter from Apple will also cost you about $30.

Additionally, 1.0.2 fixes some minor bugs that were causing crashes.

I don't think it's up to netflix. They need to put some sort of DRM or content owners won't allow them to stream it.
