Tim here, with some really exciting news for Netflix subscribers! It turns out that along with the Super HD feature Netflix provides subscribers can also now stream 3D movies and television content 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
Also, in a recent interview Netflix Chief Product Officer Neil Hunt said that Netflix subscribers can also expect 4K streaming in a year or two. This can only help improve the quality for 3D Streaming. From his point of view "streaming will be the best way to get the 4K picture into people's homes. That's because of the challenges involved in upgrading broadcast technologies and the fact that it isn't anticipated within the Blu-ray disc standard." He goes on to add "4K will likely be streamed first before it goes anywhere else." Combined with the 3D Streaming service this will mean that Netflix will continue to dominate the home entertainment industry.
Some very exciting services coming out of Netflix this year and in the next year or two. Their 3D Streaming selections will only increase over time. Hopefully soon they'll also do their own orignal series in 3D just as they did with House of Cards, which was shot in 4K. Keep a watch out for Netflix 3D!
