Re: Shaw no support new Super HD from Netflix, boo!

said by Dominnanaimo:

It's worse because TELUS is mentioned as being a partner.

Not sure if you know but Telus VOD title library is like less that one tenth of Shaw's and its even worse if you look at the ratio on HD titles offered. TELUS STB's aren't even 1080P capable and HDMI not officially supported. Hence why it would make sense for a company that has serious content limitations to look at something like this. Then again the Netflix "super" content can really still be counted by fingers but would obviously grow in time. I'd be more scared that Telus knows streaming Super HD Netflix is going to eat 5-6 times the bandwidth usage a current Netflix HD stream does coupled with them slashing bandwidth caps the $$$ signs must be an additional main reason for business profits.

Super HD streams at best consume 2 times the bandwidth, not 5-6 times.
