Try playing hide-and-seek against Netflix and you'll lose every time. There's just no hiding from Netflix and its streaming service, which is available on all three major game consoles, television sets, standalone players, Blu-ray players, and just about everywhere else.
Netflix's aggressive streaming strategy paid off big for early adopters of Apple's iPad bemoaning the lack the Flash support. Available on the same day the iPad launched, the free app gives Netflix subscribers access to the streaming service's online catalog of movies and TV shows, while also giving iPhone and iPod owners a touch of envy, though not for long.
"Terrific response to our news today about Netflix on the iPad," Steve Swasey, VP of Corporate Communications, wrote in a blog post. "For those of you asking whether Netflix will be on the iPhone and iPod touch: We wouldn't invite you to dinner without planning to serve dessert. In other words, we're working on it so stay tuned."'
