Uverse doesn't stream Netflix at all, afaik.  Netflix is a separate subscription service supplier that is in direct competition with Uverse.  I think they would have a serious issue with ATT if they started streaming Netflix offerings.

Greetings,

The person replying to your message has no understanding of the issue.  I am also wanting to stream Netflix Super HD (3D content).  In order for Netflix customers to received Netflix 3D content, ATT Uverse must allow Netflix Open Connect to work on their system.  The following link can further describe the issue https://signup.netflix.com/openconnect.  Uverse needs to allow certain ports to be opened in order to allow 3D streaming, it cannot be done on the user side.  I welcome any useful information that will help us enjoy Netflix 3D streaming.

What RCSMG stated was a true statement, i.e. U-Verse does not stream Netflix at this time. He did not get into the technical portion of what AT&T needs to do in order for U-Verse subscribers to get Netflix streaming.

I would recommend that the Original Poster (OP) send a private message to the escalation team at AT&T Customer Care  They should be able to engage the Technical support folks to find out what / if any action that AT&T is planning.  It also puts a bug in AT&T's ear that folks are clammoring for this to happen.

Uverse does stream Netflix!  It does not allow Super HD content to be streamed.  The issue needs to be resolved between Uverse and Netflix.  If you look at the link I posted, Uverse had to compy to Netflix Open Connect.

No, UVerse does not stream Netflix, UVerse provides you with a means to recieve Netflix via the internet.

That's not what he means.  There is something that AT&T has to configure to allow Netflix Super HD 3D (or whatever it is) to pass through the U-Verse equipment.

I understand that, but, AT&T does not stream Netflix.  A Roku device streams Netflix, some tv's stream Netflix, but AT&T does not stream Netflix.

According to this, in order for a device that cen stream Netflix (e.g. a Roku box) to be able to receive Super HD, the underlying ISP (i.e. U-Verse Internet service) must be configured to handle Netflix's Content Delivery Network, called OpenConnect.  As of the beginning of 2013, only Cablevision and Google Fiber were.

 

It has nothing to do with Netflix (not) being part of U-Verse Cable.

I think ATT and others don't want give up the exrta bandwidth needed for full HD or super HD 3D content 

from Netflix due to Netflix high traffic volume.  Whether it is a business or technical decision it's hard for me to say .

could be both .

 

I believe Netflix did offer to provide Content providers with the equipment for open connect either on the providers   premisesorremotely .(Amazon cloud?) but that still leaves the bandwith issues .

It could also be security isues with open connect .

If it's soley a business decision, is that not running afoul of this so called "Net Neutrality?"

I think Uverse customer should request AT&T to do open connect with Netflix. To show that they are as good as they say they are.
Or tell us why not.

AND, while they are at it - work with the Weather Channel and get Local On the Eights!

 

Seriously, AT&T thinks that they are good?  Really?

I don't know, but I still don't think the lack of LOT8's is a big deal (in my world).  Most of us are tech-savvy and have a computer of some type at hand, and, on any of those devices, I have the ability to access weather.com which has my local forecast and radar all the time, not just "on the eights".  Years ago, I switched from cable to DTV and missed the LOT8 thing, but ever since "always on" broadband was rolled out, it became an anachronism.  Since my DTV days, I have returned to cable (which of course had LOT8's), then switched to U-Verse, and have not watched or missed LOT8's.  All of this is just MY opinion of course, and everyone has their own...

I didn't use LOT8s when I had it, so for me I haven't missed it.

I realize old thread is old...  but something weird happened to me about an hour ago.

 

I was bored, so as I often do, I fired up Netflix on the ole PS3 and lo and behold, I had access to SuperHD and 3D tags I had never seen before.  Started watching one of the 3D titles...  and it worked, in 3D!

 

Fired up the laptop, and pulled up the Netflix SuperHD page, which stated that my Internet Provider was ready for SuperHD...

 

But alas, it only lasted about 20 minutes.  SuperHD and 3D tags are gone from my PS3 Netflix app and the Netflix SuperHD page is once again reporting that my ISP (U-Verse) is not configured for SuperHD...

 

Was sweet while it lasted.  Please AT&T, make this happen...

That, most likely, will be a good thing!  U-Verse tests on what I call "unwittings."  They will turn a feature on for a select group, or maybe the entire subscriber base, just to see how things go.  It could foreshadow its permanent status.  Ya just never know but that is encouraging!

Has this been resolved yet? 

 

Subscribed yesterday to Netflix and have tried using both my blu-ray and my Sony Bravia 3d smart tv.  It starts but then it hangs 2 minutes into the viewing. So the ports are opened but then close.  2d works great.

USA is behind the world, behind nations like South Korea and Japan with broadband speeds and price, we pay the most for slow broadband.
