In case you are wondering, the text of the survey was this:</p><p><span> </span><em>"Imagine that Netflix offers its subscribers the ability to instantly watch movies &amp; TV episodes on their iPhone. </em><span><em> </em></span><em>The selection availability to instantly watch includes some new releases, lots of classics and TV episodes. </em></p><p><em><span> </span>There </em><em>are no advertisements or trailers, and movies start in as little as 30 seconds. You can fast-forward, <span> </span>rewind,&nbsp;</em><em>and pause or watch again. The movies &amp; TV episodes you instantly watch are included in your Netflix </em><span><em> </em></span><em>membership for no additional fee.Whenever you want to instantly watch content on your iPhone, your iPhone </em><span><em> </em></span><em>must be connected to a Wi-Fi network (such as one you might have at home or at work, or in public places like </em><span><em> </em></span><em>coffee shops, book stores, hotels, airports, etc.)If this functionality were available, how likely would you or </em><span><em> </em></span><em>someone in your household be to instantly watch movies &amp; TV episodes on your iPhone via a Wi-Fi network?"</em></p><p>I would likely watch, what are your thoughts?</p>

I wonder how that would work without Silverlight ? Is there some kind of wrapper for it like Adobe Air making it self contained ? But yes I would be interested in being able to stream Netflix movies.

That would almost make the 3G iPad worthwhile. As for the iPhone...I'd love it there too! NetFlix EVERYWHERE!

I enjoy netflix and would really enjoy this on the iPad - seems like a no-brainer doesn't it?
