    I've tested quite a few movies and the quality is pretty bad. They look worse than the SD movies on the PS3 Netflix- tons of banding and artifacting, noise, blech. It looks about on par with SD movies on On Demand, which on an HDTV looks like crap.

    Unfortunately, you'll still need the disc every time you use the streaming service, at least for the time being. When the exclusivity rights expire for Microsoft, then both the PS3 and Wii will probably no longer need the disc.

    It's starting to look like it's not even worth putting out the option.. guess it would be ok for the kid's tv though.

    I'll keep using it on my samsung blu-ray 3252. If netflix keeps dropping the ball i might switch over to the blockbuster streaming option on it..

    Thanks for all the info people!

    I've got netflix on my PS3 and I simply do NOT see a reason why I'd use the Wii for this. Hell, I'm half tempted to cancel my Netflix account all together. The 28 day wait list sucks, especially when I can get all the new movie on Directv and they look incredible.

    How much do new release HD movies cost on DirectTV though? 6.99? 5.99? That's how much they are on Comcast On Demand.
