Your TV may well be doing a better job than external P60 devices - however.

Yes Plasmas generally handle motion much better than LCDs (even the silly 240/480 Hz ones which are trying to match Plasma motion handling) - however many Plasmas as you say support 96 Hz - my Panasonic does.

In this case 24P does look better when displayed at 96 Hz (4:4). I don't think you have this set up - but if you did try the infamous Example Short - many of whose scenes are designed to highlight exactly this. I have an old LG BD390 that outputs 720P24 from Netflix 24P sources - and you can see the difference when displayed at 96 Hz. Likewise Blu-Ray 1080P24 looks great when displayed at 96Hz. That said I still use my Apple TV for Netflix as it handles the pulldown pretty well and supports 1080P and 5.1.

In some future timeline I will have a Netflix device that supports 1080P24 YCbCr out and 5.1 audio - I just haven't found one that meets my other streaming needs....
