Netflix OpenConnect

Any word on Rogers adopting this so that we will be able to access Netflix's new Super HD content? All of the competition is!

Hmmm...it turns out it does support Super HD...just not through a DNS proxy <sad trombone>

Hello OttawaMark

It does not look like Rogers will do it as Rogers does not want Netflix. They have their own Rogers On Demand program.

Re: Netflix OpenConnect

That seems too simplistic and draconian a reason. Bell is on board with the new Netflix service. It is in Rogers' best interest to support these services, lest they bleed customers away

Hello OttawaMark

We are talking about 2 different companies. Rogers doesn't do every that bell does. Rogers has Rogers On Demand which the heavily show off. So most likely are not going on root with OpenConnect on Netflix.

It actually works fine with DNS redirectors as well just as unblock-us.com

Re: Netflix OpenConnect

When I navigate to that page using Rogers DNS, it indicates:

 

Your Internet Provider is ready for Super HD!    

Your Internet Provider is part of the Open Connect network, a free partnership with Netflix. Netflix will automatically play movies and TV shows in Super HD on a supported device if your connection is fast enough.

 

So I think we're good?

Super HD doesn't work....Why?

I have Extreme and shouldn't be a problem.

SuperHD does work on Rogers:
https://signup.netflix.com/superhd

"Your Internet Provider is ready for Super HD!"

Just make sure you're using the default DNS servers. If you use Google Public, OpenDNS, etc you can resolve sub optimally and won't get SuperHD as a result.

you bring up a good point on this.

Depending on WHAT you watch netflix on, there are a number of DNS options you can set up your configations like within  your household.. and still be able to use alternate DNS's if you wanted, on devices not using netflix.

Anyone wanting more information on how to, please feel free to PM me.
