All Netflix Members Can Now Stream Content In Highest Quality ‘Super’ HD, But Only On Devices That Already Support HD
Netflix customers now all have the option to stream their favorite television shows and movies in the highest quality bit rate that the company offers. HD? No, Super HD.

Now they’re ready to stream Super HD to everyone. They’re also hoping more ISPs will adopt Netflix Open Connect, their video content delivery network that tries to reduce internet congestion by storing content on servers as close to users as possible.

Remember Boxee? It was a great little DIY set-top streamer, and it might still be, if Roku wasn’t so cheap. The company’s latest endeavor is a cloud video sharing service, cleverly called Cloudee, and the Android app just landed. You might think that the functions in a cloud-based video upload service are eclipsed by YouTube, and for most situations you’d be right. But Cloudee focuses on sharing videos with specific individuals or groups, and it does so very well, with an interface that’s easy on the eyes.
There’s nothing too complicated here: take a video, open the app, and upload it to Cloudee’s servers.
