Netflix Player by Roku box gets updated to HD Roku has announced that the popular Netflix Player by Roku has been updated to support HD video, following the recent trend started last month by Samsung, TiVo, LG and Microsoft.
The firmware upgrade, version 1.5 will add the ability for users to watch 300 HD movies from Netflix's Watch Instantly streaming library.

Additionally, Roku has noted that they will soon be bringing non-Netflix programming to the device. A splash screen under "What's New?" reads:

"This screen will become your launching pad for a number of great new channels that will begin to appear on your player in early 2009. In addition to the hugely popular Netflix channel, you'll see new movie channels, TV channels, web video channels and more."

Also, watch out for a Netflix Player by Roku review coming soon from Afterdawn.
