We already knew Windows Media Center users could stream Netflix Watch Instantly in HD now
, but after an update it is able to note which titles support HD streaming to the PC

Netflix frontends around -- at least until Roku gets its update
. Want to see if you're actually getting
the 720p feeds? Hold down ALT + SHIFT and left click to bring up the stream manager, speeds of 2600kbps or 3800 kbps mean you're there.
