Last week, Netflix began rolling out a new feature that allows subscribers to watch some titles in high-definition when streamed to the web via Silverlight. The update, supported on both Mac and PC platforms, allows the HD streaming to occur in the browser by way of the Netflix player.
Now that same HD streaming is available in Media Center too. Ian Dixon reports that Netflix members running Windows 7 will have access to over 1800 movies in HD in Windows Media Center. In addition to streaming, from within the WMC Netflix app, you can also search your Netflix library, manage your Instant and DVD queues, filter searches and more.
