Streaming at high quality via the internet is currently a fallacy. While you may get 1080 lines of resolution, you are always getting less than 5Mbps. The blu-ray version of most movies is 38Mbps or more. The DTS-MA track of a blu-ray movie alone is 3.5Mbps. Netflix does not stream any higher than 5Mbps currently and even then it is inconsistent.
Your quality on Netflix will be lousy and lossy until they change their datarate. The same is true of all other internet based streaming services including VUDU.
Even DVD data bitrate is 8Mbps...
Broadcast HDTV is 19.2Mbps...
