    Sad news, picture actually looks pretty rough. Hopefully, Netflix will update their app to provide HD content for the new iPad.

    How do you know? I thought it was automatic, like if your internet speeds can stream HD you would get HD or am i wrong?

    Yeah. First iPad here and was definitely looking forward to 1080p streaming over wifi, but I suspect that Netflix will upgrade.

    I'm tried watching a few movies to test it out. It works that way like you said on consoles/blu-ray players/set top boxes but doesn't do it for the iPad!

    I really hope there will be. 1080p will look stunning on this screen!

    Yep, just tested this. Tried getting as close as I could to the same second on the new iPad and the original. You'll see there really isn't an appreciable difference between the two at all.

    And the movie in question is in HD and I'm on a 20mbps cable modem connection.

    How old is that movie? Maybe it wasn't filmed in HD?

    Dazed and Confused. 1993. There is no concept as not being filmed in HD. Ordinary film stock has always been HD.

    Just for S&G watch a movie that was made in the last few years. Maybe that might look better? Not sure but worth a shot!

    Hopefully Netflix updates their APP. 1080P would look amazing!
