Netflix has hit the iPhone.
The popular video subscription service just updated its Apple app to support the iPhone and iPod Touch, which now join the iPad in offering streaming videos. Netflix members can download the free 1.1.0 version to watch their favorite TV shows and movies.

You can also stop a video and then resume where you left off, whether you're watching on your iPhone, your computer, or your game console.
To tap into this app, you must be a paying Netflix subscriber (plans start at $8.99 a month) or set up a free 30-day trial. On the mobile side, you need to be running iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later.
