From Engadget:
Rumors that Netflix was offering ISPs access to higher quality streams in return for partnering on distribution surfaced early last year, and were followed by the announcement of its Open Connect CDN network in June. Now the full picture has been revealed with the company's announcement of "Super HD" 1080p and (in the US only, for now) 3D streaming, which comes to its customers at no extra cost, but only on certain devices plugged in to to Open Connect partner ISPs. The hardware list includes PS3, WiiU, Windows 8, Roku, Apple TVs as well as Blu-ray players and smart TVs with 1080p support.

ooh, can't imagine a ton of ISPs ready to hop on this bandwidth hog.
I could see an "occasional" 1080p / 3D movie once in a while, as an alternative to going to the theater. If only I owned a 3D TV!

I do think this could be a great source of 3D content, even driving sales of new 3D TV sets. One of the biggest downfalls of 3D TV has been a lack of content.
