Customers must verify that their ISP is part of Open Connect before using either the Super HD or 3D formats

Netflix is 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 Super HD 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 right here.

Super HD?

They don't even mention what they mean by Super HD. I assume it's 8K video at 300 fps, right?

The "Super HD" link in the article pretty clearly states it's 1080p video:

Benefits of Super HD

• Netflix Super HD delivers the best Netflix picture quality yet, even better than HD.
• Netflix Super HD delivers an incredibly clear, smooth 1080p picture.

So alas, no 4K video from Netflix streaming service (yet).
