Netflix HD Streaming Through TiVo

Back in October we heard about high definition streaming of Netflix content on the Xbox 360. Starting from today, Netflix subscribers will also be able to access content (including the growing number of HD titles) through TiVo, though you will need a series 3, TiVo HD or TiVo HD XL device. The interface for accessing Netflix content means you'll get an instant queue list for your TiVo (which you add to through the Netflix website), as well as synopses and rating functions. Engadget has a hands-on with the interface and also comments on the streaming implementation, commending it for picture quality (compared to the Xbox implementation) and the ability to switch down to standard definition when network congestion hits.
