9 January 2013 | 0
Netflix announced it is to begin offering 3D and super HD streaming content across its Open Connect content delivery network in the US at CES in Las Vegas this week.
Netflix Super HD is the highest quality video format offered by the service, providing a superior image than 1080p HD TVs.
Netflix has also begun offering a small number of titles streaming in 3D through Open Connect partners in the US.
"These new Super HD and 3D formats are more challenging to deliver than our other video streams, which is why we will deliver them through Open Connect," said Ken Florance, vice president of content delivery at Netflix. "Any ISP that wants to be able to deliver our new formats can do so easily and for free."
Netflix has 25 million customers in the US and recently announced it had passed the million-subscriber mark for its UK and Ireland operation.
