Netflix announced a new update for its iPhone app specifically to give iPhone 6 Plus users a better viewing experience. The company said in a blog post:

We’re excited to announce that iPhone 6 Plus users will now see Netflix movies and television shows in 1080p resolution, including Netflix originals like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards. All you need is a good WiFi connection.

When Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September, we were excited about the opportunity to extend the Netflix application to different screen sizes. We immediately began work on optimizing our user interface for the larger and higher resolution screens, and we’re happy to announce these changes are included in today’s update to our app. You’ll see more titles on screen to choose from, bigger imagery, and improved performance throughout.

One user commented, "Does anybody at Netflix know there's still an old logo on the Windows Phone platform?"

The "What's New" section for the app on Apple's App Store also notes iOS 8 support and improvements for Chromecast.
