Netflix Now Offering Films In 3D, If You’ve Got The Kit For It

Netflix have clarified that it is now offering films in 3D and what it’s calling “Super HD” to subscribers with the right internet providers.

“Super HD,” I’ll tell you up front, is actually just HD. It’s 1080p, like a Blu-ray. There’s already 1080p available from Netflix, it’s just a little bit more compressed than Super HD. So Super HD is not super-super, then, but certainly how things should be done.

The 3D films on offer right now are Immortals, The Art of FlightAfrican WildScary Tales and Live Fire – only the first of which is a narrative feature film. These have, I believe, been available for a week or two now and, of course, more will be added should the service prove popular. I hope it is, because that’s not an exciting batch, really.

Netflix are allowing these services to anybody hooked up with an IP who uses Netflix’s own Open Connect content delivery system. You can test if your IP is one of them using the Super HD page. In the UK, both BT and Virgin are good to go – but we’re still waiting for the Super HD and 3D content to pop up in our catalogues.

At the same time, there are some hardware requirements. 3D is currently only available via Playstation 3 and a string of LG TV sets; Super HD is easier with Roku, Apple TV, Windows 8, the Wii U and lots more on the compatibility list.

It Still Has To Be Amadeus Cho, Right? (UPDATE)
