The Netflix experience on Apple TV just got simpler. With yesterday’s Apple TV 3 announcement, would-be Netflix users can now sign-up for the service directly on their Apple TV device and pay via their iTunes account.
This new integrated payment experience also extends to second-generation Apple TV devices – provided they perform a little software update first.
The new Apple TV set-top box also (finally) supports 1080p output so Netflix users, among others, can stream in full high definition with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.
Other Apple TV improvements include an updated iOS-like interface and iCloud integration.
