DD yes. They don't have the HD audio formats.

ah cool, I thought it was just stereo
Just watched House of Cards ep. 7 and both PQ & SQ (DD) superb as always - very close to BluRay. Available in 4K for those with the kit. HD level adjusts to the available bandwidth. If not already, try using ethernet rather than WiFi if possible. My neighbours have Virgin and locally falls off a cliff during peak times. I stream via a Marantz UD7007 which is a superb all-rounder IMHO. As for content, they will have to offer more to keep my custom.
Sky has strangled competition in the UK.
My home cinema system
I give up, and have reverted to a post/disc service with Cinema Paradiso. At least they have the content I'm after.
It seems ridiculous I can't stream what I want using my Sony 'smart' Blueray box; I visited the Netflix site and there's no information about the cost of the available packages or what films are available. I checked Amazon Instant and found that at least half the films I have on my list in CP are charged extra for; you pay a monthly subscription, but many titles still require an additional payment. To rent one film, even if a member of Amazon prime costs as much as my CP subscription per month.
Onward to the bright new technological age.........................
And just to confirm the pathetic state of streaming services such as netflix.........................not a single reply!
is that after a week or so of watching films at such a low picture quality, going back to real hd via blu disc is such a wonderful relief .Like upgrading without spending any money.
Netflix is all about TV content, if you are signing up for films you will probably be disappointed. House of Cards and orange is the new black alone is worth a month or two subscription.
As explained in the link above from BB, it's hardly Netflix's fault Murdoch has dibs on first release
