‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ Now Streaming In High-Definition On Netflix

The remastered high-definition episodes of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” are now available for Netflix instant streaming customers.

The rollout, which occurred in the last day or so, replaces the previous standard definition episodes with the newly remastered versions.

While I’m thrilled to see the episodes hit Netflix, I don’t see it neccesarily as a replacement for the Blu-ray sets that were released over the last few years. The Blu-ray releases should still be viewed as the optimal viewing experience for TNG — especially when you factor in the bonus material and (still) superior audio/video quality. However, having the episodes available at the touch of a button is great too.

    Accurate article. Only odd thing to correct is that the final episodes, “Best of Both Worlds” part 1 and 2 ARE NOT HD. Perhaps a hold-out since the season 7 blu-ray set hasn’t yet been price dropped down to the $40 of the other seasons.

    In other news, unless the new trek series takes place in the prime trek verse than screw it

  • In Canada, the quality is pathetic. The video is interlaced!

      Quality is still SD in Canada. Or was. TNG has been removed from Netflix Canada.
