Netflix has released an update for its Windows Phone 8 app to add support for Windows Phone 8 devices running 720x1280 resolution screens. Devices with this resolution previously had a black bar across the top of the screen. Not all phones needed to be updated. For instance, the Nokia Lumia 920 retained the aspect ratio of previous Windows Phone 7 devices. This update adds full support for the aspect ratio supported by Windows Phone 8.
