Netflix touts improved 1080p performance

Slowly but surely, Netflix is doing, or at least saying they’re doing the things necessary to win over the discerning home video viewer. With regards to streaming content, Netflix says they are now “rolling out better encoding for the TV shows and movies” resulting in a “better picture quality at a lower bitrate.” A spokesperson says this means more people on slower connections will be able to view their videos in 1080p, with additional detail in the textures, shadows, skies, and faces. Netflix says “what used to be called X-high/HD is now labeled a tier lower.” This matter was first brought up by the enthusiasts over at AVS Forum, and then reported on by Engadget. So, have you noticed better video quality on Netflix?
