Netflix made ‘it’ happen when they finally announced “Super HD” streaming options. The internet movie and television company currently has a 1080i HD version that they’ve been distributing for a while now.
This new format (in addition to 3D) will be available to customers that are signed up with ISPs that use Netflix’s Open Connect network. Open Connect has been around since June. The idea of Open Connect was that it could lower costs:
“Leading-edge ISPs around the world such as Cablevision, Virgin Media, British Telecom, Telmex, Telus, TDC, GVT, among many others, are already participating in Open Connect to provide the highest-possible quality Netflix service to consumers,” Netflix Chief Reed Hastings said in a statement. “Our goal is to have all of our members served by Open Connect as soon as possible.”
At CES in Las Vegas, Netflix announced that the “Super HD” and 3D movies would be available starting this week. The 3D videos apparently include ‘Immortals’, ‘The art of Flight’, and a number of titles from 3net Studios.
