Does Netflix stream movies at 1080p or 720p for HD video?

What does Netflix streaming HD movies at 1080p or 720p?

5 Answers


Netflix on PS3 goes disc-free, gets 1080p streaming and 5.1 surround sound

Netflix streaming on Xbox 360 (as of Dec. 6, 2011) has support for 720p HD (bandwidth allowing) and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound so movies and TV shows streaming from Netflix look and sound great!

Roku 2 (XD, XS, XDS models) was updated to support 1080p/5.1. If a title is available in 1080p, you will automatically receive a 1080p stream provided that your Internet connection has a fast enough download speed, you have a 1080p-compatible HDTV and you are connected to your HDTV via HDMI. Not all Netflix titles are made available in 1080p.  Note: Previous Roku player models will not support 1080p streaming.

AppleTV currently only streams Netflix at 720p.

Netflix for the Wii has no HD is limited to 480p.

Netflix recently downgraded their streaming for movies from 1080p to 720p.

Yes Netflix does support 1080p and 720p. As long as you have the right internet speeds. You will be able to watch videos available in HD.

I have a vizio 47"tv and it doesn't stream in 1080,, anyone know why that is?

I also have a Roku XDS that does stream in 1080p with some videos. HOWEVER, i have yet to see a movie from Netflix stream at 1080p, all I get is 720p. If you know of a movie that does it at 1080p, list it here.
