Netflix streaming is HD for me. Better than DVD by far. And I live out in the sticks, so to speak (though I have a decent internet connection). DVD uses mpeg-2 compression; you're looking at 4-7Gb for a 2 hour movie. Compare that to your average 1080p MKV - that's about the same size for six times the image size. Netflix is awesome.|
Unlike Lovefilm. Which is a shitty, shitty mess. Got it free for 12 months and still have yet to watch a complete episode of a show or a movie; it's just horrible.
I'm a grumpy bastard.
