Netflix Adds 1080i and 5.1 Audio for Streaming – First with Sony PS3

Beginning this coming Monday 10/18 the Sony PlayStation 3 gets a Netflix streaming-only feature right through the PS3 menu.  And there’s no disc required.

The PS3 also gets an upgrade to the Netflix User Interface for quicker startup and playback thanks to the new, no-disc-required approach.

But wait – there’s more good news.  With the new update, there will be some content available to the PS3 with 1080i resolution and Dolby 5.1 surround sound!  Lets hope this is a sign of things to come from Netflix as their service continues to get better.
