LG high-def TVs to stream Netflix videos directly

Netflix Inc. has come up with another way to get movies to people without sending DVDs in the mail.

In a partnership announced Monday, LG Electronics will start selling high-definition TV sets that stream Netflix videos directly from the Internet, without an additional device. The deal marks the first time Netflix's streaming service will be embedded in a television. (Tech)

Blu-Ray is here why would anybody watch this sh!t?

Sometimes you want to watch a movie on impulse and you don't want to have to wait for it to arrive in the post.

Also, many movies don't rely heavily on special effects. BluRay quality isn't needed when watching something like Sleepless in Seatle.

I think the success of BitTorrent shows that many people would rather watch a low quality movie today than wait for a high quality version to arrive in the post.

BitTorrent isn't all theiving cheapskate pirates. It's often used by impatient and bored people that just want to watch a movie ASAP.
