Re: Can't get Netflix HD/Super HD with Comcast.

Even wired into my router directly didn't help though. So it's just a ISP inssue?

I'm saying it's likely NOT just the ISP or the backbone or even just the CDN serving the show, ALL are likely pushed to the limit at some point because on demand type video is so popular and growing so fast right now.
but if one video service has a problem and at the same time the others do not it's more likely NOT the ISP's network or even "the internet" but most likely the providers(Netflix, amazon, youtube, hulu) servers getting hammered at that time and it changes day to day as end users try different sources.

Well I do have amazon prime so I can try that. Ive also rented from Vudu from time to time and it streamed in full HD.

No its not a ISP problem. Even all that capacity doesnt do shit when you have 5000 people connecting to that server.
