    So this is an excerpt from an article about Netflix trouncing Blockbuster:

    I'm not sure about this. Do you folks think Apple would allow instant streaming through Netflix on the iPhone? I mean isn't this the same argument as Apple adopting Blu-Ray or using Boxee on your Apple TV? Allowing Blu-Ray on computers, Boxee on Apple TV, or Netflix on Apple mobile devices basically promotes users not getting their content directly from Apple through iTunes. I'm just not sure I see Apple making this kind of move. Don't get me wrong, I think Netflix on the iPhone or an iPod Touch would be cool, but it seems like Apple would be shooting themselves in the foot. What do you all think?

    Yes.

    There are several video streaming apps already ... ABC, CBS, MobiTV etc. Heck, there's already Netflix on the iPad.
