Yes there is a $4.99 credit.

Also VUDU only does 720P on the XBOX just like Netflix.

So does that mean there are only SD(480P24) and HD(720P24) titles since HDX titles are in 1080P24?

Can you get a credit for each box or is it only per Gamertag? With the Boxee Box I was able to get the credit for each of my three Boxee Boxes when I launched the VUDU app. Hopefully I can get it for each of my three Xbox Slims.

Sweet! I got $14.97 in free VUDU credits. And I only had to log in on the first console. Then it associated my VUDU account with my Gamertag. And when I started up the app on the other consoles, it automatically gave me the $4.99 credit. Although it expires in one month, unlike the credits I got in the fall from BD purchases that gave me $5 credit with each BD title I purchased from Walmart.

I did need to remove a couple of my other VUDU devices from my account since there is a five device limit on VUDU. But I don't use VUDU from my PS3 anyway or my four year old BX100 boxes anymore.

The Premiere can output 1080P24 but I've never heard anyone mention outputting 1080P24 from Netflix on the Premieres. I thought it had been tested and the bitrate was the 720P encodes.

New Roku Streaming Stick! - For TVs w/ new MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) standard - (for a TV with an MHL-enabled HDMI port)

Not sure how well or if, it would support streaming via an MHL HDMI adapter! - if so, could it be connected to the AVR instead!

Article Click here....

Cheers!

I'm not sure I really understand how this has a big market.

Here is a link to a nice comparison chart:
http://blog.streamingmedia.com/2012-...hart-Final.pdf

I think blu-ray players with good streaming capabilities should also be included in the comparison lists. Some of the models of blu-ray players from manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic are selling for similar costs.

The problem with this comparison is that it doesn't specify exactly what stream quality / audio format the device is able to play from the streaming service, and therefore provides little or no value.

I agree bluray players should also be included. The 2012 bd players now surpass many of the standalone streaming boxes.

I agree, there is a lot that can be added.
