    i wonder when they're gonna roll out surround sound for the PC customers. that's the only missing piece of puzzle i am surprised they haven't done that yet. does Netflix automatically assume that every PC users don't have good speakers? have they heard of HTPC?

    Why would they limit surround sound support to just PC users when the PS3 and 360 both can handle DTS and Dolby Digital? I would imagine it more likely comes down to to bandwidth and trying bundle a 5.1 and 2.0 audio signal together with video and keeping them in sync. I've noticed with just stereo, the audio coming slightly out of sync occasionally when my internet connection gets bogged down.
