Netflix Roku Player Will Add HD
Roku's Netflix streaming video player, introduced to wide acclaim earlier this year, will add HD streaming capability by year's end. The announcement was made by a Roku spokesman in an official online forum.
"Roku will be delivering Netflix in HD by the end of the year," the spokesman, Tim Twerdahl, wrote on Roku's forums, as noted by Gizmodo.com
"Roku will be using Advanced Profile encodes which will deliver HD at substantially lower bit-rates than what Xbox is offering. The number of titles is up to Netflix but the library will be the same as or larger than the Xbox library. The UI will be updated to run in 720p and more covers will be visible on the screen at a time."
