Netflix VP admits HD service lame
As Netflix hopes to reach a new swath of gamers by way of Wii, vice president of corporate communications Steve Swasey downplays the company's HD streaming service on PS3 and Xbox 360.
The Wiire interviewed Swasey about the prospects of expanding Netflix subscriptions on Wii and whether the lack of HD videos will put that console at a disadvantage. "So, the HD experience at Netflix Instant Watching isn't that overwhelming. It's a little bit underwhelming. So the Wii folks aren't going to miss that much."
In short, Swasey is admitting that the HD offerings on PS3 and Xbox 360 suck. While that might make Wii owners feel better, how exactly is that going to motivate subscribers on PS3 and Xbox 360?
