Netflix is the latest big-name company to announce that they have upgraded their iPad app for the brand new retina display. The enhanced new app, among other things, features high resolution icons and images. I mean, you bought the new iPad for a reason, right?

So, here’s what you’ll get with version 2.1.1:

  • Improved artwork for new iPad Retina display
  • Fixed VoiceOver support
  • Improved playback on external displays
  • Numerous fixes and stability improvements

Not quite Earth-shattering, but here’s the really cool part. According to Netflix’s Twitter account, you’ll soo be watching all the movies and TV shows streaming in HD. Netflix says that is coming “later” – later today, later this month, or later this year is unknown.
