No difference that I'm aware of. 5800 Kbps best-quality 1080p video + 192 Kbps DD+ = 5992 Kbps + 20% headroom to keep the buffer topped off = 7.2 Mbps (I was wrong, in the other direction).
...Because you guys have also more choices (more titles). ...And in 4K and in 3D too.
I don't know about 3D (you can't see the list in the Netflix browser unless you have a 3D TV which I don't), but there is a small selection of 4K titles available in Canada, being 3 "Netflix Original" series (House of Cards
, Marco Polo
), Breaking Bad
and four "Moving Art" nature shorts.
The Canada region Netflix library is smaller than that for the US, but it often features several big recent release titles that the US library does not, due to exclusivity deals with all of the premium cable sevices here (HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, etc). Right now I notice Transformers Age of Extinction
and Rio 2
available in the Canada region). I use a DNS spoofing service based in Canada (adfreetime.com, $2/month) to access the Netflix libraries of other regions and moreflicks.com to search all of those libraries simultaneously.
