Comcast had most if not all of their systems actually set up for those connections when they signed and it was just a matter of "flipping a switch" to get them going; evidently AT&T did not.
They 'came up with the agreement in early May'; they worked together on the physical setup while both parties attorneys negotiated the money Netflix was to pay AT&T; then they actually signed the properly executed and legally binding contract just before the July 29 announcement.

Whether a 'switch was flipped' or not as you said, my improvement was fast enough for me which was within five days after the peering announcement July 29.

As I previously stated wait until the Netflix ISP Speed Index marketing tool for August is released. I have always taken the "Netflix ISP Speed Index" with a grain of salt and have been skeptical of the data.

Netflix on Time Warner has been excellent. I heard of no deals and I check the tech and Netflix news everyday but some streaming does a direct peering with a 23 address while I still sometimes peer with Level 3 with a 108 address however I now always connect to the NYC CDN.

When I checked the mirror links in Internet Explorer on Windows 8 it defaults to the NYC CDN but the Atlanta CDN still shows up to as a mirror.

It is done. Looks like since June they have been getting things ready even though I have not had any direct peering until the last two weeks.

Now I won't have to complain so much on here anymore.

Interesting. I came to this thread thinking I'd see a long list of recent complaints, not of things getting better. I have a 50Mb xfinity/comcast connection and Netflix has been just terrible for 3 or 4 weeks. I can't go ten minutes on any show w/o significant degrade of signal through a wired xbox 360. It's so bad on my wireless smart bluray player that it just stops altogether and is unwatchable.

By comparison, I watch Amazon Prime on the same xbox 360 and never see the signal degrade. If it's HD, it remains HD the entire stream.

Without reading through the 6000+ posts in this thread, can someone help me understand why this is?

Thanks in advance,
Sheep

It's also up for me. But with the variety of equipment that Netflix deploys and with custom routing tables for the various "direct connect" servers for various ISPs, it doesn't surprise me that occasionally a server issue or a router issue would take down a bunch of customers and the rest of the customers don't experience any hiccups at that time.

Down here also. Came back up, but is a bit slow to load. Must be getting a lot of calls, when you contact them there's a voice mail saying they have a streaming issue and are working on it.

Thanks Ian so those on Cablevision are affected. No big deal I have Amazon and as a last resort Hulu which I only use because of the Bing rewards program.

Same here. Had a problem getting on Netflix at 10 PM last night. I've been rewatching the first season of Longmire.

I was first trying on the Roku 3 but it was very slow and almost non-responsive. Switched to my Apple TV 3 and got the same behavior although after clicking back and forth several times I was able to get an episode to play.

This was on TWC 15/1.
