We reported earlier that Netflix would support HD DVD at its launch this month, and while the launch of the players and disks is behind schedule, Netflix has quietly begun to accommodate HD DVD rentals on its website. If you go to the your account area, it gives you the option to set up your account for HD DVD, reminding you of the sharper images, better sound and more features of the new format. It then gives you the option of automatically placing the HD version of a movie in your queue rather than the standard DVD. Not that Netflix is actually offering any of the HD DVD disks yet, but it's ready when the disks are.
