Re: Netflix Super HD and alternatives

Hmm.. So Netflix is just going by DNS hits... I dunno if this is good or bad.
Wonder how this will impact the long term use of third party DNS like google or OpenDNS... For now they seem not to work...
For Netflix access from ISPs not on Open Connect, Netflix, like other CDNs, routes you to one of their server farms based on the DNS you use; so you will likely be routed on third-party transit.
For Netflix access from ISPs on Open Connect, because the Netflix servers are located on the ISP transit network, you will be routed directly to their servers without leaving the ISP transit network.
