Very useful for rural satellite users. Download at the free times because you set your download windows manually and it will prefetch 3-4 episodes on its own.I considered it since My ADSL runs around 5mbps, may get the me last PQ tier if I am not hitting it. I get 1080p but not sure if it is the best 1080p.

I ordered the kit and paid for a year sub (little over $5/month). My ADSL is cranky and this will alleviate some of my Netflix frustration. Nothing worse than sitting down to watch Daredevil and being able to only get 384 speed...

Yes, there is. How about 288p or 240p speed? Even worse would be a Netflix outage. I would sometimes see 288p or 240p the two months leading up to when Netflix finally agreed to become a direct customer of Comcast and have Netflix CDN directly connected to Comcast.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (120Mbps/12Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.

I haven't played NF on my BD player since getting the Shield Console but it's doing it on the latter.

Anything below 480p is a waste and I still don't understand why they don't get rid of those useless encodes. I use to say if you don't have the bandwidth to go back to disks but now with this new kit it should help people with limited bandwidth and might but most likely not give a excuse for Netflix to get rid of those useless horrible low def 240, 288, 384 encodes that even look bad on a small phone screen.

Netflix on your BD player has that newer common UI?

Yup, but I don't watch on the Sony 480 since getting a Sony 1200 last fall. It has the newer UI but doesn't auto start. I looked for setting to stop that on the Shield but they aren't there.
