Netflix, ABC Player, here come the iPad streaming video apps!

The streaming video apps for iPad are now in the US iTunes App Store so if you've been waiting to get your mobile TV and Movies on, go grab Netflix [Free - iTunes link] and ABC Player [Free - iTunes link].

Netflix makes use of your existing Netflix unlimited membership (yeah, you need one of those but you can grab a free trial to test it out). Once you're set up, you can pretty much watch the content you want, when and where you want. Browse and manage your queue from the iPad, watch on your TV, PC, or iPad and resume right where you left off.

ABC Player lets you watch full episodes of LOST, Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Desperate Housewives, and more. Search and schedule make it easy to find what you need and viewing history means even though it's streaming, if you need to stop watching now, you can resume where you left off later. The app is free but the content is "sponsored" and it only works over Wi-Fi.

And if you want more content on your iPad, like CBS, remember Apple's got a whole Safari/web friendly list up for you!

Screens shots after the break!
