Still limited by hardware. My BD player got a firmware update today (no idea what it was for, I can't find any mention of it online), but no change to Netflix. Still stuck watching 3D on the Playstation.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mister Anderson.

I too have been pleasantly surprised with the recent addition of SUPER HD and 3D from Netflix of late. And to think I was under the previous impression that my 10 Mbps DSL from Cntrylink was gonna need upgrading. Nope.

I use PS3s for all my BD & HT streaming needs.

Being DSL, I do truly get 10Mbps (or very close to it) 99% of the time. What a lot of people forget about fast cable is that your speeds depend on how many other folks are "feeding at the trough" at that time. Whereas DSL is based upon your distance from the source and thus changes in speed are rare.

Anyhow, $40 a month + taxes and no bundles of any kind. No, I'm not getting my broadband for $30 while paying $80 for a home phone or pay tv service I don't need.

___________________________________________________________
* Cntrylink 10Mbps DSL = $40
* Netflix w/ SUPER HD & 3D = $8
* Blockbuster 2 BDs/Games at a time = $15
* Antenna on the roof + HD DVR for HD TV = Free

I almost always get my 50+ Mbps from Comcast. Except when they decide to throttle Netflix. But there are other services I use that I have to throttle myself because I will get between 6.2-6.4 Megabytes per second and it kills all internet to other devices to the house.

Guess I'll have to see if my GTV devices can use this. Doubt it.

I've got Brighthouse in Central FL, 90mbit (doesn't matter time of the day, I get 97-100mbit when speed testing) and the 3d works great. I'm sure I don't need anywhere near as much bandwidth as I have for netflix, but the move to give everyone access to the higher bitrate streams was smart.

Watched a super hd title (Chasing Ice) on my GTV NSZ-GT1. Other then the always constant ****** video the first 10 seconds (google tv thing, maybe to do with ethernet) it looked fantastic.

Just noticed last night that some of the Netflix titles are available on 3D through Comcast here in southern PA. I watched part of a very cheesy Titans/Gladiator movie just to guage the 3D Effect, wasn't bad!smile.gif

I can confirm 3D Netflix content is showing up on my Sony S-5100 Blu-ray player. On my shortlist to see first is Art of Flight, Beowulf, and A Turtle's Tale all on 3D. I'm on Time Warner Cable in Central North Carolina.

Anyone had luck getting the 3d titles on Oppo players? Also, what type of audio do we get with these 3d titles?

I have a Sony 3D blu-ray also (don't know the model number). I'll see if I can do Netfilx 3D on it. I can get it on my PS3 but at times the speed is too slow (8 mb) so the movie stops. On the PC's its 50mb. I"ll have to see if the Sony Blu-ray player is faster.

I currently have a 7mbps limit (planning to upgrade to Comast next week) but I notice that on my PS3 3D is only displayed at 720p (still looks quite good though, way better than Vudu). Is this 720p a function of the PS3 or my current speed limit?

i'm pretty sure that limit is on netflix. i have 150Mbps and i still only get 720p. while it does look better than any hd broadcast 3d, any 3d that isn't 1080p just doesn't look right to me. my brain hurts after a bit, where i have no issues with 3d bd. i don't know though, maybe it's just my display.

I got the Comcast upgrade yesterday and watched parts of Sammy's Adventure on my LG LM7600 directly thru the TV and via a slim PS3 connected to the TV. While I still haven't found a way to have the LG display what resolution it was playing at, the image looked crisper when I was going straight from the LG rather than the PS3 (which still showed as 720p).

Does Comcast not work in some areas for 3d streaming? I am using a PS3 and no 3d titles are showing up.

Has anyone had any luck with Cox & Netflix 3D Streaming on PS3?

I tried a few of the titles available in 3D on the PS3 app and the audio plays fine but the video "stutters" a lot like the old Herbie Hancock "Rockit" video from the 80's lol. I know I have enough bandwidth.. Netflix site says you need at least 12 mbps download but I get at least 25+ from Cox.
Besides Wi-Fi, I also tried LAN cable into the router, and also the LAN cable directly into the modem, but it did not make a difference.

My DSL speed is capped at 10 Mb/s and I had one occasion where a Netflix 3D movie paused at the very beginning for just about 3 seconds and then resumed just fine. Haven't watched many 3D titles on Netflix. Mostly I'm watching Super HD titles. Never any issues, no buffering or anything other than the one time I mentioned above.

Just mentioning it because technically speaking, I shouldn't be getting this good of streaming with this speed. But I do.

I noticed the same thing on some of the titles like a few IMAX selections, but every movie I have played so far is fine. Not sure what the deal is. I am getting about 19 mbps download which should be plenty and again movies work great, its just some of the other titles I have tried like IMAX stuff.

Toe I think you are right about some of the movies not working correctly. When I initially tried it I only tried a few movies, thought it was the service too but today I had more time and tried all the movies in the "3D" genre listed. These are the ones that did not work for me when I tried to play them for a few minutes:
Plankton Invasion 3D
Mummies secrets of the Pharaohs IMAX
Legends of Flight IMAX
Arabia IMAX
Scary Tales
Shark Night
Dino King
Wild ocean IMAX
Dinosaurs Alive IMAX
Dinosaurs Giants of Patagonia IMAX
Live Fire
Oscar's Oasis
Grand Canyon
Ultimate G's: Zac's Flying Dream
Angelo Rules 3D
Skeleton, Inc.
The Ultimate Wave Tahiti IMAX

I did just get off the phone with Netflix and let them know about issues with those specific movies stuttering in 3D. They said they would have their engineers look at it, but the guy on the phone did not see those movies have any other reports playing in 3D, so maybe no one else has called on them yet like I did?

Also Interesting I didn't see Beowulf on the 3D Category, but when I searched for the movie it came up in search and it was playable in 3D with no issues, I wonder what other 3D movies are not in the category but are available via search? I wish they would add Dredd streaming in 3D too.

I'm pretty sure part of the problem is tied to the different Netflix apps for different 3D devices. I own two 3D TVs - a 2010 Samsung and a 2012 LG; each has a PS3 connected to it via high speed HDMI cable. Each TV is also networked and has its own Netflix app.

None of the Scary Tales shows worked on either TV thru their respective PS3's Netflix app, exhibiting horribly bad flicker and skipping, as if the left and right images were not in sync. But when I watched them thru the LG TV's Netflix app, they all worked just fine.

I think Netflix needs some feedback from viewers informing them that they need to take another look at their 3D implementation across all their supported devices. They also need to do a better job of listing which of their movies are available in 3D.

Well guys, I gotta recant my earlier post about no issues.

I decided to try those 3D titles listed and had the same stuttering you mentioned - BUT only on the PS3. Immortals and Tormented were no problem, but every single title Sinistar listed was a problem. So I chatted in with Netflix support. They said that they would like to hear from guys with higher speeds than mine that can't watch these 3D titles.

SO PLEASE chat or call Netflix. They really couldn't help me saying that my speed is not fast enough to expect 3D titles to play well. HOWEVER, my Sony TV's Netflix app plays them ALL just fine, but not my PS3's Netflix app.

And before you ask (as Netflix asked) my PS3 has plenty of memory, is up to date and is only 2 months old. Same as the TV. The TV's web apps all typically perform MUCH worse with lag and buffering than the PS3's. BUT the TV will stream 3D titles that the PS3 won't. ???????

I tested some of those titles in your list and had problems with all the ones I tested. I just reported the problem to Netflix as well.

Kudos. Netflix (as with all companies) likes to say that "we've never heard of this problem". So the more that call the better.

I have a LG 55ga7900 Google TV and when I run the Netflix app built in the TV and play any of the 3D movies I tried on the PS3 app, the app does not have any play 3D option for those particular movies, not sure when they will add 3D to the TV's PS3 app. .

I also have the same problems with those titles on my PS3 Netflix. Other titles play just fine. I'd be glad to call too. Can you all post the phone number and who you asked for to get to a person who knows how to file a complaint?

I went to Netflix.com and clicked on "contact us" at the bottom of the page where I then started a "chat". You also have the option to call them here: 1-800-585-7265

If you go through the process above to find that phone number yourself, the page will give you a code to enter during the call. No doubt to automatically give them all your account info so you don't have to verbally do so.

But YES, PLEASE EVERYONE CONTACT NETFLIX ABOUT YOUR PS3 3D ISSUES.

Thanx.

I called Netflix as well.

I watched Grand Canyon:River at Risk in 3d a few weeks ago on my PS3 and it played fine. I got a message on my PS3 for an update to the Netflix app (version 2.14) and now the same movie stutters when playing in 3d now. I don't know what version of the app I had before but it seems that this update changed something with my Netflix 3d playback. Some 3d movies play fine but others stutter like members have reported here. I sure hope they fix it because I want to view all those IMAX titles in 3d.

Go Phillies! Go Eagles! Go Sixers! Go Flyers!

Hey guys I think it's important to keep this thread going and to let Netflix know which titles are having issus, due to the fact that we are a minority in viewing 3D content. So far Cave of forgotten dreams and grand canyon are stuttering for me. I am on Comcast 30mbps using a PS3 to view the content.

So Netflix has known about it for over 2 weeks now and still hasn't fixed it. Awesome. rolleyes.gif

I'm a Netflix newbie. I tried searching for 3D movies and found a few, but none worked with my Sony 590 bluray player. How did you find the movies on their play list?
