Netflix HD Streaming To Appear On XBox 360 First

When Microsoft releases the updated Xbox 360 dashboard on November 19th one of the features available will be high definition streaming of video from Netflix. You'll have to be an Xbox Live Gold member to take advantage of the HD content (which will be limited, at least initially), but the potential is certainly there to turn the Xbox 360 into a stronger all round media platform because of it. According to engadget, the quality is impressive enough (they also give a low down on the other features coming with the new dashboard). One lingering question with this introduction is when (or if) current Netflix streamers will get the HD treatment.
