Netflix adding 'Super HD' and 3D to its service

See also

Netflix announced late Thursday the addition of two new features for its service; namely Super HD and 3D.

Super HD is essentially content streamed at 1080p, which will require that a user be a part of an eligible ISP (being part of the Open Connect initiative). For those unsure if their ISP is a part of the program, Netflix has rolled out a page that will let you know if your ISP qualifies.

A few new features are being rolled out by Netflix.

Streaming in Super HD requires a connection of at least 5Mb/s, although 7Mb/s is what Netflix is recommending. Compatible devices include the Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 3, Roku XD/XS, Apple TV, Windows 8 and Blu-ray players and Smart TVs with 1080p support. Strangely enough, the Xbox 360 is not a part of this list, but Netflix says more devices will be added shortly.

Content can be picked out to be in Super HD by looking for a logo next to the content's title.

Netflix also stated that they will begin streaming 3D titles, beginning with Immortals and a series of documentaries.
