Customers must verify that their ISP is part of Open Connect before using either the Super HD or 3D formats
offering higher quality video
formats in the way of Super HD and even a 3D option for certain films.
Through Netflix's own content delivery network (CDN), Open Connect, Netflix is offering
options to improve picture quality for those with 1080p HDTVs.
In addition, select titles will be available in 3D, such as "Immortals," "The Art of Flight," "African Wild," "Scary Tales" and "Live Fire." Netflix said it will consider introducing more 3D titles if there's demand for it.
"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."
Customers must verify that their ISP is part of Open Connect before using either the Super HD or 3D formats. If your ISP isn't part of Open Connect, you can get it

Since your bluray or roku plays it I'm not sure this matters (and WII/PS3)...Maybe MS pitched them a few hundred million to say this...LOL.
Then again, the xbox isn't listed as a capable device yet, but again that could be MS blocking it for some reason. I don't think there is a technical reason why Win7 or even XP wouldn't do this. It's a function of the app's ability not the OS. It the PC's case it's not even an app. It's delivered in browser (any browser) so this is confusing. Maybe it's just what they've tried first. Incorrectly many assume win8 will succeed. They should have qualified devices by market share first. Win8 compatibility would be the last thing I'd check...LOL.
