There is NO Netflix press release that mentions anything about 1080i/P streaming, just the 5.1 DD+. When and if Netflix decides to enhance the picture quality you can be sure they will make everybody know.
From the Netflix blog (http://blog.netflix.com/2010/10/wii-...disc-free.html
), as posted today by Greg Peters, Netflix VP of Product Development:
There is even more good news for PS3 owners: starting today you'll be able to instantly watch some movies and TV shows in *1080p high definition* with Dolby 5.1 channel surround sound.
Not a PR
, but a statement by a Netflix corporate officer, for which they can be sued, if fraudulent.
Okay there's the following announcement on Sony's Playstation 3 blog (here (http://blog.us.playstation.com/2010/...netflixps3/)):

A quick update, we have received *a new version of the application from Netflix* and we're happy to report that the PlayStation 3 app will support 1080p.
Though I'm sure that Sony et al. are allowed to adjust things to their taste, I think that Netflix is largely responsible for the streaming portions of these players (I think that the BD player ones are slightly customized versions of the same BD-J app). That Netflix gave them a new version which "will support 1080p" suggests more upconversion to 1080p, for which I'm fairly sure they wouldn't need Netflix' help at all.
