Netflix 5.0 brings HD Video and AirPlay Support


Netflix has released an update for iOS app with some new features and improvements.

Netflix 5.0 includes new features such as HD video and finally AirPlay streaming support.

Here’s what’s new in Netflix 5.0 according to the change log:

  • Netflix HD for iOS 7
  • AirPlay streaming for iOS 7 (requires disabling AirPlay mirroring)
  • Playback optimizations
  • Stability improvements

Support for AirPlay has been one of the most requested features, so it is good to see that it has been added. It however works with only iOS 7 or above, and you need to disable AirPlay mirroring.

If you’re watching a movie or TV show on your iPad or iPhone while on the move, you can continue watching it on your TV when you get home using AirPlay.

If the update hasn’t been automatically downloaded, then you can download it via the Updates tab in the App Store app or using this App Store link.
