Time Warner Cable, Netflix at odds over 'Super HD,' 3D
CNET.com reports that In order to get higher-quality HD visuals and 3D content through Netflix, cable providers must sign up with Netflix’s Open Connect. And Time Warner Cable doesn’t like that.
Time Warner Cable and Netflix are reportedly talking to each other about partnering on the streaming provider’s content delivery network (CDN), but the cable provider isn’t too pleased about the service.
Speaking to Multichannel in an interview published yesterday, a Time Warner Cable spokesperson criticized Netflix for only delivering its higher-quality high-definition service, Super HD, and 3D videos to customers whose cable providers have signed up with Netflix’s Open Connect.
