Instead of TV shows and movies consolidating under the umbrella of a single source as many of us once hoped for, there has been an explosion of original content from a plethora of sources that keeps us picking and choosing our subscriptions à la carte. Some of these providers let you download content to watch offline, some don't, and some charge extra for the service.
The Netflix app on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch does not offer a way to subscribe. While those with an existing Netflix account can sign in to watch, starting a subscription cannot be done within the app.
To open or restart a Netflix account on iPhone or iPad:
Netflix is featuring the latest in the Black Mirror saga with a film named Bandersnatch. Much like the well-known Netflix hit Stranger Things, this episode takes place in the 80s. The difference is that Bandersnatch is an interactive experience.

When Apple's TV app was announced it promised to unify the viewing experience for streaming content across the iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

Notably absent from TV at launch was Netflix, however this has all changed.
