    I know they haven't got many titles. Just read a report about that the other day. At that time they had (maybe) 3 titles. NF also has to allow various devices to receive 1080p content. Probably gonna take some time.

    The PS3s were always among the first to get the "extra" features from NF. I wouldn't be surprised if the Apple TV box got it too. Haven't checked my Sammy BD players.

    My ISP supports the new streams and my ps3 shows 1080p but I don't know if that's up converting or the stream. Only goes to high hd. There is no more xhigh hd. Is there a symbol or is everything hd 1080p because of my ISP deal with netflix

    I'm thinking if my modem's limit 5.2 Mbps is the show stopper ?

    NF has, or had, 3 tiers of streaming. Don't remember what they were, but I think yours might be too slow.

    It doesn't have much to do with NF other than them releasing the HD stream to certain devices. What those devices are just this moment is anyone's guess. My two Sammy BD players, the e6500s, always upscaled the streaming picture to 1080/60/p. What you're looking for is 1080/24/p. My Panny plasmas will only show 1080p, they don't mention the frame speed. I do know the devices that are activated for the new stream will show a different logo on the info of the streaming content.

    New Super HD and 3D Video Formats Available on Open Connect

    http://www.netflix.com/superhd

    ps3 has done 1080p for a long time. what i guess im asking is the superhd. is this different because it only available through certain isp and consolidated communications is one of them(checked on netflixs test page for superhd). im assuming its everything we stream because of the change in the levels (no more x high hd and only high hd) or are there superhd titles with a special icon

    found my answer
    Netflix Super HD

    Sony PlayStation 3

    Just looked at Netflix's superhd page and my ISP is not one of those that can support it yet. I'm with Frontier.
