Netflix PS3 App / 3D Content Tab?

6 replies 493 views Edited Dec 5, 2012

Could Netflix streaming of 3D content be far off?  I opened the Netflix App for the first time in a couple of weeks and I noticed that there is now a 3D content section that includes some IMAX content and other selections that were originally released in 3D.  Currently, it just plays this content normally (2D).

 

I wouldn't think anything of it, except that there has always been IMAX content available on Netflix, but it's just appeared in the appropriate category.  This new category tab is a bit encouraging for those of us with 3DTVs.

I haven't used the Netflix App in some time myself, but I agree, it is encouraging for those like you & I with 3D TV's, I'll have to check out the available content & see how it looks.

As I said, currently it just streams in 2D as always.  Perhaps an update is on the way, though.  Who knows...  maybe someone at Netflix screwed up.  Again.  Smiley Wink

I think it is quite possible, since there are a lot more 3DTVs sold and in people's homes now...

Anyone have any issues with the Netflix PS3 app streaming in 3d?

 

I tried a few 3d IMAX movies and even a 3d animated movie, the audio plays fine but the video "stutters" a lot like the old Herbie Hancock "Rockit" video from the 80s lol. I know I have enough bandwith.. Netflix site says you need at least 12 mbps download but I get at least 25+ from Cox.
I also tried plugged LAN cable directly into the router instead of using Wi-Fi, but no luck.

The other day I watched Dexter and Homeland on Netflix. Don't as me how. Maybe someone is screwing up over there.

Works like a charm on my AT&T 24Mbpa connection.  Just wish there was a bigger selection of 3D titles.
