Netflix lets Apple TV owners subscribe on screen

Cough up through iTunes too

Top three mobile application threats

When Apple ships the new Apple TV on 16 March, owners of the small set-top box will be able to sign up for Netflix on screen and pay for the subscription streaming service through their iTunes account.

Netflix said the tie-in will allow ATV 3 owners to watch "thousands of hours" of 1080p HD content.

Folk using the ATV 2 won't get movies and TV shows at that resolution - the box can't handle it - but they will gain Netflix's "seamless sign up and billing experience" through a software update, the company promised.

That's a reference to the iOS 5.1 update Apple began pushing out to devices last night, though on the ATV it's numbered 5.0. ®
