Saw this on another forum.

Netflix is going to start 1080p streaming and 5.1 surround... AND no more disc needed.

This functionality was included in the latest PS3 update.

the netflix disc on the PS3 is horrible. It seems every couple of weeks I have to delete the BD data from it and reinstall in order to use it. I hope the application is a lot better.

Weird. I have a few discs for multiple ps3's I own. Never had a problem getting one.

I've never heard of that problem either. Sounds like you should have gotten another disc. I bet the installed app wont have that problem.

Tried it out today, watched Ironman and Married With Children definitely upgraded. Its not 1080, but it is a great improvement. Hopefully Sony does not start charging extra for their online servers like Microsoft.

doubt it since netflix is the one that owns all the media servers not sony.

this is just the natural progression since xbox already has disc-less netflix streaming. (which many comment on why sony/wii didn't have it until now cause MS made a contract with netflix)

Why not 1080? Are they only having limited 1080 streaming?

Not sure, it looked pretty good, not blue ray good but there was a big difference with Ironman. I did not expect Married With Children to look very good especially since I was watching season 3 1988? But it looked very good, very similar to when a blue ray player up converts a dvd. This is probably the best 10 bucks a month I spend.

I should have clarified, MS requires a gold membership to use netflix. I hardly play online with my xbox so I don't pony up the extra bucks for a membership. Where as Sony and Nintendo only require an internet connection.

The new netflix app is awesome. The video quality is crystal clear on both my tv's. Easily 1080p looking. The only problem I had is using the netflix on both my tv's. If I want to stream a movie on one ps3 and play games on the other ps3 I can't because it requires I login to my psn account and I cant be logged in to my account on two different ps3's. I created another psn ID for the one I stream movies on and it seems to be working fine now.
