It seems that Netflix streaming will be available on small screens sooner rather than later, and the news out of Microsoft’s MIX10 developer conference seems to confirm that. At the conference, a device running a prototype of the Windows Phone 7 Series operating system streamed an episode of the television drama Rescue Me using a Netflix mobile app. The new OS is projected to ship on new phones by the end of this year.
According to NewTeeVee, “If all the features from the prototype make it into a final version of the app, subscribers with Windows Phone 7 devices will be able to view new releases and recommended movies, manage their video queues, and watch full-length videos even when they are not in front of a computer or other connected device that stream Netflix movies.”
Would you make room for a such a Netflix streaming-capable device in your pocket, Insiders? As we’ve asked with other news of this nature, how small is too small when it comes to watching movies on-the-go?
