Posted Fri Aug 27, 2010 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

It's been in the works for a long time, but movie streaming from Netflix on Apple mobile devices is finally here.

Apple fans, the time has finally come. The most popular phone in the US finally has access to the most popular streaming service in the US. Go ahead, enjoy the moment.

There's not much in the way of surprises from the Netflix app. It's free to download, but streaming requires a subscription to the Netflix service. You can search for and watch movies and television shows and manage your queue directly from your portable device.

Despite earlier rumors stating otherwise, you will be able to use Netflix anywhere – whether you're connected by WiFi or 3G.

As long as you've got an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.13 or later, you can jump onto the App Store and grab Netflix now.
