It's pretty good when it comes to video quality, but stereo audio will only get you so far. SRS announced earlier this week that 5.1 surround sound is finally ready for use with Silverlight. As Microsoft's Brad Becker puts it, "Multichannel audio takes the premium media experiences offered by Silverlight to the next level."
There's no word yet on when Netflix will implement the changes that bring surround sound. The company has promised 5.1 surround by the end of 2010 and it looks like they're well on the way.
