I'm trying to figure out what type of 3D Netflix is streaming over their Open Connect CDN.

The requirements for viewing Netflix 3D are so strict that I wonder if they're using MVC (multiview video coding) to encode the videos, but at the same time I wonder if they're just using a higher-definition top/bottom or side-to-side format.

Does anyone have any idea?

I didn't even know there was 3D on Netflix. Off to research!

It started in January with the Super HD roll-out. Not everyone can get it to get it: your ISP has to be a member of Netflix's Open Connect CDN and you have to have specific hardware like a PS3 and obviously a 3D TV. Of course the big ISPs haven't signed up yet!

There's not much worth watching. Mostly childrens programming and some documentaries.
