    I have tried the iPhone app this morning from home over wifi - the quality is very acceptable. I have not tried the 3G quality yet... but will experiment a bit later today...

    3G quality is very nice. No issues. Similar to Hulu on 3G.

    Can it buffer an entire show/movie (or multiples) to watch while off-network, for instance during a commercial aircraft flight? That's the only time I'm interested in watching movies on an iPhone. Now I have to buy the movies and videos from iTunes or rip DVD movies to my iPhone with the ifunia DVD to iPhone converter, or just download videos movies from Hulu, YouTube things like this, then also need to convert with ifunia video conversion tool, u know it get some times to do that, and I don't want to pay too much on this video/movies enjoying.

    Nope. Netflix only allows streaming - no downloading for later viewing. It only buffers something like 3-5 minutes at a time.

    Well, I still can't seem to buffer over 3G, movies stop every three seconds and pause for 2 then play for 3 then pause for 2. If I manually pause the movie I can wait 30 seconds and watch maybe 30-45 seconds before it skips, jumps or pauses again. I am on 3g with full bars.

    Does anyone know why when I watch a movie completely to the end it shows as "resume" at the top of the screen next time I go into the app. What's to resume when I've already finished it? It's done this with every movie I've watched so far. 4 to be exact. It's like it doesn't register that I've finished it. Is something wrong or is this normal?

    I've already watched Shawshank. One of my favorites!!

    Remember Red.. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and a good thing never dies!

    I do pretty well over 3G. Although, it really depends on where you're at. Strong 3G signals = no problem! theIphonechick, try playing it again and scrolling to the end of the movie and see if the resume button shows again. I did it, and it doesn't say resume anymore.

    I definitely enjoy this! Took them long enough. IMO its faster and a much better interface then the terrible iPad app they have (basically their website). The only gripe I have as of now is no video out
