Netflix updates iPad app for Retina display

Updated to clarify that the app changes affect UI elements only, not video quality.

Netflix has rolled out the Retina-ready version of its video streaming app for the iPad. You can grab it for free from iTunes. The video service requires a minimum $7.99 monthly subscription.

Of course, the iPad's display is actually much higher resolution than even an HD video stream -- there's no change to the streaming quality in this build (Netflix says HD streaming is coming soon) but at least the app's interface elements will look razor-sharp.

New feature list:

- Improved artwork for new iPad Retina Display

- Fixed VoiceOver support

- Improved playback on external displays

- Numerous fixes and stability improvements
