Re: [Internet] Feature request: Netflix SuperHD support

I was under the assumption that both Netflix and BHN provide on-demand movies and TV shows. I would assume that the more successful Netflix is, the less there would be demand for services like Movies on Demand and premium networks such as HBO and Showtime and even more so if Netflix continues on with their plans to actually create content, in addition to distributing it.

I'm not saying that BHN would never consider joining this "Open Connect" network, I'm just curious if there is any major benefit for BHN, other than to drive some bandwidth costs down.

I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just thought it would be nice to have access to these new Netflix features such as "Super HD" and 3D content.

But we really don't compete if you think about it...two different business models after your business. Each serves their own respective niche quite nicely actually and you using Netflix and similar services increases the likelyhood you will adopt faster internet...so while there may be a tradeoff in one area there is a gain in another. I think the only guys out there worried about you using Netflix are those who have capacity issues to begin with and whos fault is that? Netflix...no. Rest well knowing we aren't the other guys. Use any service you want that adds value and enjoyment to the products we offer...it's just that simple.

I realize you guys have this "need" to find battle and conspiracy in things, it's human nature but....I can promise you cable guys don't go to work each day looking to crush Netflix or similar services....it just doesn't happen....frankly we're too busy focused on what we need to focus on....our own business and you.

I guess I've made the mistake of grouping BHN with all other cable operators. That's something that, by now, I should know isn't the case.

With all the talk about caps and metered usage, I have to applaud BHN for keeping things simple. And as I've said in the past, since I signed up for Lightning, I've had nothing but rock solid service and speed.

I guess I need to stop reading all the "Let's hate the cable company" headlines that frequently appear on the front page of DSLReports.

Yes you do! Cable, for me, is a great service and having the ability to watch whatever I want instead of having to wait for it on streaming/disc is fantastic. Plus being a huge sports nut I need it. Folks complain about commercials, but some of them I love, like the Mayhem guy, Maxwell the Geico pig, Aaron Rodgers (mmm Aaron Rodgers 3 ), etc. People think nothing about forking over big money every month for phone service but complain about paying less than $100 a month for cable. I guess I'll never get it.
