How about better audio? Netflix's garbage is still low bitrate lossy 2.0. Pathetic.

Just about everything I watch streaming from Netflix is in 5.1 DD+. I've got around 100 titles currently in my streaming queue and around 90% of them are in 5.1 DD+. It's rare for me to watch a streaming title from Netflix that is only in 2.0.

Which of course is still lossy but I would not expect them to use a lossless codec since it takes alot more bandwidth. Besides the vast majority of people would not be able to tell the difference between a lossless codec and a lossy codec in a double blind test.
