Apple TV will let users sign up for Netflix through iTunes Netflix will be better integrated with Apple products into the future.
The streaming company has announced today that owners of Apple TV set-tops will be able to sign up for the service and pay right through their iTunes accounts.

As of today, the upgrade is rolling out in all markets, says Apple. Those markets include the U.S., Canada, Latin America, the UK and Ireland.

Earlier this week, reports came out that Netflix has been meeting with cable companies in the past weeks in an effort to get their own channel. If CEO Reed Hastings is successful, Netflix would become available as an on-demand option for cable subscribers, similar to rivals HBO and Showtime.

The channel would offer Netflix's streaming catalog of 25,000 TV episodes and movies.

Netflix is also set to offer 5 of its own original programs in 2013, including the cult classic "Arrested Development" back for a new season.
