On a flight last week, I sat by a guy who was watching Mad Men on his Ipad...the same season that I have on DVD at home from Netflix. Somehow he had downloaded from Netflix to his Ipad to allow viewing while in flight.

How is this done??
Thanks in advance

Or, he ripped the DVD from Netflix.

That's a possibility........
At the time, I did not own an Ipad and was on the fence about buying now or waiting. I asked and he, being a nice young man, told me "there is a service on the web called Netflix....." and I realized that he did not think I would understand techno-weenie stuff. We were getting ready for food service so I didn't get into the whole thing.....
In flight movie watching impressed me so I made my purchase and now am asking, other than ripping, is there a way to download (even for a fee) to the ipad?

Most likely the flight had WiFi and he was using Netflix instant streaming. Netflix has an app for iPad, but it does require an internet connection.

Only made a statement as to how someone could be watching something on their iPad. Very few flights yet offer wifi good enough for full video streaming. Some, but not all.
