It’s amazing the information that comes from Twitter these days, rather than official blogs or old-school press releases.  The official Netflix customer service Twitter account “Netflixhelps” responded to a question about HD content on PC by saying “HD is limited by content licensing and tech issues that we're working on. We expect to enable HD streaming on the PC this year.”

The statement is a bit vague, but the idea of HD streaming finally hitting PCs is going to make a lot of people very happy.  HTPC owners have been left in the lurch, while $80 devices and videogame systems have been watching Netflix in HD.

This isn’t the only change coming to Netflix this year either.  They’ve already announced that 2010 is the year that they’ll finally offer 5.1 surround sound.  It’s not going to replace your Blu-rays yet, but an HD picture and 5.1 surround makes Netflix a much more attractive service.
