Netflix has announced 1080p Full HD streams will be available to watch on the well-endowed iPhone 6 Plus.
Both non-exclusive and exclusive Netflix content like Orange is the New Black and Breaking Bad will be available to watch on the updated Netflix player in Full HD glory.
There’s no word yet if Netflix will be bringing its higher-resolution content to other devices like the HTC One (M8) – which has a 1080p screen – or the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or LG G3, which both have Quad HD (WQHD) displays.
Chris Fry, manager of iOS Platforms at Netflix and Tom Richards, manager of UI Engineering at Netflix said in a joint blog post: “When Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September, we were excited about the opportunity to extend the Netflix application to different screen sizes.
“We immediately began work on optimizing our user interface for the larger and higher resolution screens, and we’re happy to announce these changes are included in today’s update to our app. You’ll see more titles on screen to choose from, bigger imagery, and improved performance throughout.”
Netflix says all you’ll need is a ‘reliable’ WiFi connection in order to get the full HD streams on your phone. The streaming company hasn’t provided any helpful pointers. The iPhone 6 Plus is a dual-band phone so it might be worth investing in a dual-band router if you’ve not got one already.
According to the updated App Store description, the Netflix iOS app has also been updated to make it a little more stable on devices running iOS 8.
