How to watch 3D movies in netflix?

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
I have a P50ST50 and i found a couple 3D movies on netflix. There's no option to turn on 3D and when I press the 3D button on the remote, nothing happens. The movie is being shown in 2D. Is there something I have to do to view these movies in 3D on my tv?

Join the club! I tried to and got the same. Apparently your internet provider must also be ready for it. And I have ATT and they are not. Lame!

Apparenlty the TV requires an updated version of the Netflix app.
Samsung reportedly recently updated their Netflix app for 3D on some smart TV models, so Panasonic would have to do the same - but they may only update the current models (ST60, etc)?

Unfortunately Panasonic still hasn't updated the Vudu app for 3D support on 2011 model 3D Blu-Ray players, that has supported 3D on the 2012 and later models...

IF supported 3D titles should be listed in a separate 3D category by the app (not controlled by the 3D button on the remote) just like it works with the current Vudu 3D app.

I dumpted NetFlix when I found they are TV and provider specific. My Vizio and Fios were not compatable with their system, so I went with Direc Tv and am very happy with the 24/7 3D content on 3net (107). Sony/Imax/Discovery (3net) pretty much own 3D content at this point and its not PPV.

I'll second the DirecTV/3Net channel. Been watching lots of 3D there, as well as ESPN 3D channel 107 (while it lasts)

 

With 3Net, The Vizio M70, and a set of wrap-around 3D specs, I'm liking what I'm seeing

What kind of glasses are those? They really look neat.

I contacted Sony to see if a firmware update was coming on the BDP-S590 Blu-ray player so I could watch Netflix 3D content (my ISP supports it) and their reply was NetFlix doesn't have 3D. So I guess the answer is no. Works great with VUDU.

Funny, Playstation is listed as supporting Netflix 3d... go figure. The usual lack of internal corporate communication....

I watch Netflix 3-D movies via my PS3 all the time. It's been live for me for several months, via the PS3 only.

Steve- What internet service do you have and where are you located. I can't find the Netflix 3D videos on my PS3. I have cable modem with Comcast. I keep my PS3 and Netflix apps updated all the time. Just nothing there.

I believe you need to be on Netflix "Open Connect" servers to get 3D and Super HD streaming. Comcast has not agreed to participate yet,

Verizon also will not offer this service. It looks like if it will take business away from a provider, it won't happen. NetFlix is holding the TV mfr's and providers hostage to thier firmware and not getting anyware since this has been going on for a few years now.

Thanks. Since I wear glasses will these fit over them? They are curved so that may be a problem.

Thanks. I guess a call to my AE is in order. I should do some homework on this, Netflix web info sources first before calling them. Having a Comcast Business account has some advantages.

The last time I checked they were TV specific also and Vizio is not on board. I would think your tv would only have to be 3D ready and that would be it.

I would be using a PS3 here in my HT room. My Vizio is mainly used for editing.

My ISP is Cox Communications in Las Vegas. As I stated, the Super HD and 3-D streaming only currently works through the Netflix app on my PS3.
post #19 of 69
Made the inquiry today and my AE got me through to a senior network engineer who took the time to review the process with me. There are some limitations that can prevent an ISP from being eligible for the service. In his review of the requirements from Netflix, he felt Comcast here in Jacksonville cannot meet the Netflix location requirements. He agreed to push the request up the chain of command for further review and said to check back at a later date.

For more info on locations and other Netflix requirements for your ISP- check this out:
https://signup.netflix.com/openconnect/guidelines

Do not click on this link it will redirect to main Netflix web page. Copy and paste the link in your address bar.

Yes, PS3 is supported for 3DHD as well as some models of LG TV sets according to Netflix FAQ.
While Las Vegas is not supported as a Peer location, maybe they have have another way around that. The ISP networking is way outside my area of knowledge.

Here is the word from Netflix
Netflix 3D

Netflix now offers 3D streaming for select titles in the United States with the following devices:
Sony PlayStation 3 (connected TV must support 3D)
LG TV Series: LM6200, LM6400, LM6600, LM6650, LM6700, LM7600, LS5700, LS5750, PM4700, PM6700, PM6900, PM9700
Additional device support coming soon!
To stream titles in 3D, your Internet Provider needs to be connected to our new content delivery network - Netflix Open Connect. Visit our Super HD page to see if your Internet Provider is connected. Open Connect is required for both Super HD and 3D streaming.
If you have a compatible device and your Internet Provider is connected to Netflix Open Connect, you can find 3D titles by looking for the 3D logo.
Please note that 3D streaming requires an Internet connection speed of at least 6Mb/s, while 12Mb/s will deliver our highest 3D video quality.
For more information about Netflix Open Connect, visit our Open Connect page.

Same "word" for about a year now. I don't think much is going to change until they are wide open and not playing this game with the tv's and provider networks. I dumped Netflix to show them my support for their policy. There are numerous complaint threads from customers, but the only response is what Machead posted.
post #22 of 69
Their "additional device support" is somewhat lacking. The only device I use for Netflix is the one device that doesn't support 3D.

You need to check out 3D-BluRayrentals.com. Most of us here use this service and it is great.

For what it's worth, I just purchased a Vizio M601d, am on Verizon FioS, and am getting the Netflix 3D and SuperHD content...

Did you watch a movie yet? How does the PQ compare to Netflix 3D?

The quality is good. In my area we don't have a provider that works with Netflix 3D. I'm surprised your Vizio is compatable, it wasn't a few months ago. We have Time/Warner, Fios, Dish, and Directv and they all opted out of the Netflix 3D package.

According to the 3D Go website my Vizio TV model number is compatible. However when I went to the Yahoo app store list, I could not see 3D Go app listed. How did any of you upgrade to get your Vizio to work?
post #30 of 69
My Vizio updated its firmware on its own a few weeks ago. I have the M3D55KDE.
