My main streaming box is an old PS3. If it had streaming issues, I would know about it by now. I've never seen it fail to hit the highest quality possible personally.

But what does the last generation systems have to do with MS's forced paywall? You don't believe that Netflix will magically work better because you have an Xbox Live account do you? That's just...wtf?

Okay you apparently don't know how Netflix works. Sony servers are NOT providing the streams, and neither is Microsoft's Your level of service has nothing to do with their game service infrastructure.

my comment was made as a result of reading that they did cache content, hence why we performed the tests,

Xbox live gold was the topic, I wasn't being version specific to Xbox one vs. 360.
