Netflix 3D Streaming is live - Page 3

post #61 of 319
Was pleasantly surprised last night when I turned on The Art of Flight (movie not TV show) and my PS3 asked if I wanted it in 3D. To which I said hell yes!

Anyone find a list of other titles in 3D?

How was the 3d? I LOVE this disc in 2d and I hope to be able to catch the 3d at some point which I thought was only available as an import until your post. I have Netflix, but I dont think my Comcast internet supports the 3d streaming. mad.gif

Is there a way to tell, or do you actually have to start watching the movie to see if it's in 3D or not? I see a lot of movies listed as "SuperHD", but still not seeing a single thing about 3D anywhere.

I have local suddenlink here in west tx, internet prompts me if sure want to watch in 3d, then go goes to the movie, still doesnt compare to my blu ray 3d movies, I still think even my direct tv 3d channels put out even better 3d than blu ray content on my VT25.

Next to "SuperHD", it will also say "3D"

Finally "activated" on my PS3, just watched Sammy's Adventure and was blown away by how good it looked, even in 720p. I also watched "Skeleton, Inc." and "Fire Ants" which were both fun. Before seeing "Sammy's", I watched "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" and was very disappointed in it. First time I have ever watched anything in 3D that gave me a head ache.

I am very thankful Netflix has started streaming 3D, now if they would start 3D blu-ray rentals, I would re-subscribe to that service.

Locally, we started seeing ads running for xfinity / Comcast stating: "Soon, we will be increasing speeds of your cable internet connection to 2 and 3 times current speed. up to 100mbs." I suspect this would be in the range so that Netflix 3D can be offered. I hope this comes true. I look forward to having Netflix 3D soon.

Don't bet on it. My area got the speed increase over the summer.

the movie selection is horrible

Well, they could have gotten it 3 years ago but the fact is Netflix just started to offer this a couple weeks ago.

The launch with 3D and 4K content was announced at CES in January as an expanding market and title set.

Sorry to rain on your campaign of pessimism but indicators are now very positive for Netflix 3D.

The selection today is by far much bigger than is was two months ago and will continue to grow. Obviously, the first step will be for consumers to get the service provider speed. Competition will drive that. Here the ads are bragging that this new cable speed will be far superior to AT&T which appears to be the competitor.

Comcast drags its feet on everything. Weren't they the last major ISP to "allow" HBOGo on Xbox? Comcast forgets they are in the service industry. Legalized monopolies are great. Net neutrality doesn't stand a chance. I can't fathom how they could cap your bandwidth (a practice currently suspended) and still disallow certain traffic. Cell providers got their own shot handed to them for doing that with charging extra for tethering on metered plans.

I have no hope for them on new Netflix features because I still see them throttling movies I'm watching. They tend to give off a feeling of contempt towards Netflix. I know this because my father works in the network analyst department of Comcast (can't remember the exact title) and the way he talks about Netflix, bandwidth, and their negotiations you would think Netflix which across the border to rape their horses and riding off on their women.
post #74 of 319
Comcast used to be on the leading edge. I was on the beta test team for the original Broadband back in the 90's. But today you may be right about dragging their feet. I have a business account so I don't see the caps the rest do. Been pretty happy with their service.

I guess the real question is what can we do if Comcast is way above the competition. I have Netflix and it is actually very good and consistent quality. I have it on my PS3 for the Home theater but also on ipad and computers and Vizio TV. The aps are different but the quality is pretty consistent.
post #75 of 319
Agreed about Comcast being leading edge in the past. And honestly their product isn't poor. It just isn't all it can be. I'd love to see them push more IP based delivery systems for cable tv. Lets be rid of the old cable box model! Though in fairness almost the whole industry is slow on this one, mostly because of content providers I assume. But the staggered roll outs of things like the HBOGo is infuriating.

I also agree that Comcast is above the competition, but that's mostly because I can only get slow DSL and satellite, which wouldn't get me local sports. A neighboring township screwed me out of FIOS. Netflix is mostly good on my 3d blu ray player, but there is a noticable drop in quality at least once a few minutes into a show/movie and then sometimes it seems to happen at an interval. I pay for 50mbps and I definitely get that on downloads that aren't Netflix. A newer Netflix client on my GTV box (first Gen Sony) spends the first 30 seconds at VCR quality. I'm assuming that is something with the GTV client or hardware though.

I think the worst quality I get here on Netflix is with a bluray player app. I really don't use it. I normally use PS3 in the Home theater, and it is very good on the HD channels. My daughter has a Roku box and the quality is excellent now that she switched from AT&T DSL to Comcast. She is out in the country too. I think its like anything else, the breakout for Netflix 3D and also the 4K will be a region at a time and we're just not on the list yet. Presently, I have plenty of 3D programming to fill my time so it isn't like I have nothing to watch.
post #77 of 319
Still so sign of it here. I can see plenty of titles listed as SuperHD, but nothing in 3D. Using Suddenlink in Texas, by the way.
post #78 of 319
Cox cable in Arizona, just noticed I have a 3D section now...

Watched a bit of Pina, has its ups and downs, mostly ups in terms of 3D. Fun movie to watch with someone.

cakefoo- Looking forward to a comparative review from you for a 3D BD vs. 3D Netflix
post #80 of 319
Any news on when NF might add other devices to stream 3D besides the PS3 and LG TV's?
post #81 of 319
Is this just in the US or is Netflix Canada streaming 3D?
post #82 of 319
I see some 3D content on netflix (PC):

3D Dive
3D Safari
Oscar's Oasis 3D
Angelo Rules 3D
Plankton Invasion 3D
Jackass 3 3D
The Adventures of Tintin
and some more....

No mention of 3D here for those titles. Still limited by ISP.
post #84 of 319
I'm getting excellent Netflix 3D with a Sony BDP-5100 3D bluray player & Panasonic 65-GT50 TV. Surewest (Sacramento) fiberoptic internet. 57 titles available at present.

I have DSL via Centurylink in Vegas and NO SperHD/3D option from Netflix.

See: https://support.netflix.com/en/node/8739
post #86 of 319
Okay, I'm starting to see how this works now, and all I have to say is this: That's just stupid. Because my ISP does support it... I've already got SuperHD titles.

I have three devices downstairs capable of running Netflix. My PS3, my BD player, and my TV. Of those, I only use one... my BD player. Why? Because it has easy to use controls.. play, pause, arrow keys, etc. I can play video the way people play video.

Guess which one (and only one) is NOT on their list of supported devices? I already burned up one PS3 by watching video exclusively, I'm not doing it to another one. And my LG TV doesn't pipe its internal audio to my receiver, and there's no way in hell I'm going to use the TV's built-in crap speakers when I've got a perfectly serviceable high-quality surround system wired up.

My BD player is a Sony, that's perfectly capable of playing any other 3D content I feed it. And clearly, Sony has the capability of creating firmware updates to run this, considering their game console has it. So why not roll out an update to my player? It's not that old, I assume they're still making updates for it.
post #87 of 319
Mfgrs have no interest in updating previously released players. My 3D Samsung D6700 player gets no 3D firmware update. In fact, they won't even update the Netflix audio to 5.1 or close-captioning! Just the opposite in fact...they removed the BLOCKBUSTER app! The CE companies have no problem giving you less, but they will never give you more. They want you to buy their current models.

Now that Netflix has opened Super HD to all isp's, is anybody getting titles in 3D? Just curious. And what titles are available?
post #89 of 319
Yes on the PS3. there are about 50 titles at least. Very few devices can display the 3D to date even though its on all ISP's
