Netflix has released Version 5.0 of its iOS app that includes the typical "playback optimizations" for the on-demand streaming of movies and television shows. The highlight features of the new launch are Netflix HD for iOS 7, which will allow for streaming higher-quality HD video, and AirPlay streaming to an Apple TV. Netflix previously supported AirPlay through mirroring, but the iOS 7 version can now offer background streaming to play video without the user having to remain in the app.
