Streaming netflix to my macmini or mbp works fine. The netflix app for ipad always stutters, stalls, and gets to such a crappy quality it is unwatchable.

Its not my internet connection because netflix works great on other macs in my house, and I have between 5-7 mbps download.

glocke12, I really think too that your Netflix stream/video is dependent completely on your upload/download speeds, obviously mostly your download speed.

I just got an ad that I'm taking my ISP on that will give me a great price for my Internet connection, as well as my cable stations and my telephone. I'll be getting Road Runner "Lightening", which is supposed to be their fastest speed.

Anyway, I know what you're saying because I just got the streaming price with Netflix and at least 2-3 times in every movie I've watched so far. But again, I think streaming Netflix movies and shows are almost completely dependent on your Internet connection.
