Netflix 1080p on new Apple TV

Following today’s new Apple TV unveiling, Netflix has just announced that, starting today, users can sign-up for Netflix directly on the Apple TV and pay via an iTunes account. Also, with the new, third-generation Apple TV, users will be able to watch movies and television streaming on Netflix in 1080p high definition and with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.

With a software update on your Apple TV, this seamless sign up and billing experience extends to the second generation Apple TV. The new features are available wherever Netflix is, including in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, the United Kingdom and Ireland.

    I’m still waiting to be able to watch Netflix abroad from a US account! Possible with this new payment system? If not – who will be the first to hook us up with a VPN option for aTV?

    I know..I will probably get one..I use the old one cause it has a 160gb hard drive…I bring it in the car with me and hook it into the AV system so I do not have to bring DVD’s for the kid.  I just want an update to fix the video switching to 720 on its own since I have it set to 1080 and sometimes it comes out of standby on its own..Not looking for a total refresh.

    Do you need a US credit card? Or can you sign up to Netflix with iTunes gift cards? I want to sign up from Australia and this would make it heaps easier.
