Netflix Now Streaming 3D and Super HD in Los Angeles
HD-Report.com reports that SoCal-based provider Bel Air Internet is now streaming 3D and Super-High Definition 1080p content to Netflix customers, making the company the first in Los Angeles to offer the high quality video options. Bel Air joined the Netflix Open Connect Network just this week, giving them direct access to Netflix’s own content delivery network (CDN).
ISPs that join Netflix’s Open Connect network (launched in 2012) can avoid having to share bandwidth over commercial content deliver networks that can get congested especially during peak hours of Netflix viewing. Netflix Super HD and 3D streams are currently exclusive to members of Open Connect.
