I'm also wondering if you can use the iPad's "interactive features" if you are streaming over Airplay. In addition, to surround sound, is the video HD or standard def.
By the way, I am seeing the "Super HD" badge on my TiVo Premiere but not on my other devices such as the Apple TV 3 (with the latest firmware upgrade). I'm not using ublock and I'm on FIOS which is not part of Open Connect. When I play the Example Short on the TiVo it tops out at 1750 kbps (when it decides to show the bit rates). Sometimes it will say the clip is not available. I wonder if this is a bug with the TiVo Premiere as I doubt I'm getting Super HD.
Is this with using Unblock-US? I noticed about an hour ago that the SuperHD badge also appeared on my TiVo Premiere. I'm updating my Apple TV now to see if it also has the "Super HD" badge.
Engadget posted this Super-HD (and user profiles): http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/09/netflix-profiles-super-hd-3d-dial/So, apparently over 4800 Kbps.....
MPalmer7,Does it literally say "X-HD" or "X-High" on the PS3. I wondering if they've given it a new label above X-High
The GigaOM story had an interesting update:So, it looks like Netflix is encoding the entire library for "Super HD". I'm also a FIOS subscriber so I'm bumming. I bet Netflix couldn't get these ISPs to buy in so now they are counting on customer pressure to do it.Does anyone know if Comcast is on the list?
By the way, the most popular stand-alone streaming player in terms of sale is Apple TV with Roku as #2. I hope they put Redbox on the Roku and I agree that it's a good place to start. Roku makes it pretty easy to add your own channel. Apple TV is a lot tougher given it's a closed system.However, the biggest numbers are from the game consoles which have tens of millions of devices out there between the PS3, Xbox and Wii classic (probably over 100 million if you add up all...
There was a article at GigaOM about the Netflix post/video and they stated there were 120 encodes created. I asked if that it included other assets or not. Netflix confirmed there are 120 separate encodes created. http://gigaom.com/video/netflix-encoding/?go_commented=1#comment-1267008
Recently there was a post on the Netflix Tech blog about their Digital Supply chain: How movies get from the studios to a streaming. Attached to the blog post is a video with lots of interesting tidbits. The most interesting one to me is that Netflix needs to generate 120 "downloadables" for the variety of devices, bitrates, audio and captions. I don't think they mean 120 separate encodes since some of the captioning and audio assets sometimes live in their own files. It's...
Engadget had an article about it recently. In there they state:I'm bummed there's no mention of Roku. It seems I own every streaming device except the ones on their list.More athttp://www.engadget.com/2012/12/12/redbox-instant-pricing/
