AV aficionados looking for a little more shine from their Netflix titles streamed over 360 or PS3 are in luck, as the film rental company announced today plans to beam its movies to your TV in "full" HD.

That means a 1080p video signal and 5.1 surround sound, just like the PS3 and Xbox video marketplaces can handle. Of course, options will initially be limited, as only 6% of Netflix's library supports this kind of quality, but there'll be plenty more HD content available as time goes on and more films are released to that standard.

1080p streaming is due sometime later this year, and as far as consoles are concerned will only be available to 360 and PS3 owners.
