    What the heck Netflix. You're the number one streaming app and you don't support iOS 9 hallmark iPad feature...get your **** together.

    This really does baffle my mind, more so because the framework is already in place and all Netflix has to do is literally put in a few lines of code enabling it. It's been out for far too long for them to have any excuse not to support it.

    I'm sure the Netflix powers that be hang out here looking for reviews of their products. SMH

    I heard from Infuse's developer that if a video playing app does not use Apple's default built-in video player interface, they cannot support PiP as Apple currently doesn't provide a way for them to do so.

    Sometimes you just need to bitch...do I expect Netflix to see this? No, but sometimes I just want to share my frustrations and see if I am the only one.

    If you want to be more proactive, you can actually send a message / complaint to Netflix directly. I know a couple of people at Netflix where they actually analyze complaints of just about anything and can sort them by how common they pop up. Enough demand for PiP in their system will get their mobile developers going on it.

    the real reason i think that netflix and sling tv do not enable picture in picture mode is because it causes you to watch it even more. thats what MLB TV App reported just last week

    another reason might be Netflix doesn't support " other screen resolutions " ( har har lol ) something i learned trying to use quicktime to record my iPhone's screen with Netflix running back in iOS 8 beta

    All options out there are mentioned here.

    There are a few third party apps (ProTube,YouPlayer, Tubex) which do offer this Slide Over/Split View, Picture in Picture (PiP) and even have other great features (play audio in background, remove ads - ProTube only).CornerTube, Moldavite only offer Picture in Picture (PiP).

    My favorite is definitely ProTube.

    Not 100% sure about ads although it seems there are none but you can definitely play audio only and in the background with Tubex
