Super HD offers the highest level of picture quality available on Netflix – if your internet connection is fast enough. Super HD also replaces the X-High level and according to Netflix it will offer better picture quality due to the more efficient compression algorithm.

Super HD has a bitrate of around 6 Mb/s.

Netflix is also testing 3D in the US with a bitrate of up to 12 Mb/s, and they also have other new features and ideas that we will tell you more about in the later interview. Stay tuned!
