With Netflix and a cable, your iPhone is a pocket theater
A recent update to the iOS Netflix app provides for video out, so you now can play your streaming videos from your iPhone, iPod or iPad on your TV. All you need is the $50 Apple AV cable. Don't have a Netflix account? No problem! You can rip your DVD collection into MPEG files and stream them from your computer at home using an app called Air Video. Both solutions are easy to use and give you a portable theater in your pocket. Watch the video for more details.
