    now that netflix has somewhat confirmed hd i would love to see what their library will look like (esp if they havent added hd tags to their website/devices). i cant help but think there are as many people interested in netflix’s stuff as all the other services combined.

    @Aaron – Ahh thanks for reminding me! I was thinking of trying to get int touch with someone about that yesterday but I forgot until reading your post.

    I can’t make any promises though.
