    Well i finally decided to go ahead and subscribe to Netflix for the streaming service because I was thinking about getting Apple TV tomorrow. So ive been trying it out on the website. Im having one issue. When i go to all the HD content and try to play it, itll only stream in SD and not in HD. I have the check mark checked to allow it to stream in HD. But it still says not playing in HD. My internet connection is fine. I did a speedtest just to confirm my internet was doing ok and i got 14.14MBPS down and 1.48MBPS up, and this is on AT&T Uverse. anyone have any ideas. I def dont want to get apple tv if i cant stream HD. Ive tried Safari and Firefox. No difference. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I find you HAVE to use full screen to get "HD." Other wise its just SD.

    Agreed. From my tests with my MBP (and probably any computer for that matter), you must watch the show in full screen for HD to kick in.
