Amazon does the same thing on Prime membership free videos. More HD and 5.1 movies are available to streamers than the PC. I never understood the reasoning behind this. Didn't know Netflix did the same.
To me, a PC is the ultimate source for watching Internet videos. You're not restricted to the apps built into media players. You can go directly to fox.com and get an HD feed while you have to pay for Hulu Plus to get the same HD quality. Regular free Hulu cuts down on the resolution.
I just don't get it. Why do they do this? Specially with more laptop computers coming with HDMI, connecting a computer to a big screen TV has never been easier.
