Netflix Is Ready for HD15 Mar, 2006 By: Brendan Howard
The first movies on HD DVD may or may not arrive March 28, but Netflix is wasting no time in letting customers set up their accounts for the new format.
“With far sharper images, better sound and more features, HD DVD will greatly improve home entertainment,” promises Web site copy in a new feature titled “Set up your account for HD DVDs.”
The site further states: “There is another type of high definition format called Blu-ray, which is not yet available. We will carry movies in this format as well, so check back later this year!”
Netflix promises customers they can get HD films when available at no extra cost and asks users if they have the necessary equipment and whether they want movies in HD DVD when available.
