Netflix SuperHD with ATV3

Has anyone that has an ISP that supports this tried it and noticed any difference? My ISP wasn't on the list, but when I checked the Netflix site, it said mine is supported.

My wii u and ps3 both have the Super HD logo next to the movies that support it. My Apple TV (3rd Generation) does not show that Super HD logo. I wonder if the Apple TV really does support it yet.

Were there any updates required for the PS3 or WiiU? Doesn't seem there should be, since essentially it's just a higher bit-rate stream. ATV3 is definitely on the list of supported devices.

There were no updates for the PS3 and WiiU. I know that Netflix lists the Apple TV as a supported device, but the movies that are listed as SuperHD on the PS3 and WiiU are not listed as SuperHD on the Apple TV.

Interesting. Well, were you able to tell any difference in PQ? Are all HD movies listed as SuperHD?

I did notice a little bit of a difference of PQ, nothing substantial though. Not all HD movies are labeled as SuperHD, but many are. I have been re-watching the show Lost on Netflix that last few weeks and it is now labeled as SuperHD on the PS3 and WiiU.

My ISP supports it as well, but I am also not seeing any indication of Super HD on the Apple TV3.

Currently talking to Netflix support online and I've been told that I would definitely need to update the Apple TV. She assumed the update was already out and when I told her there wasn't one available she told me she had no further information regarding it. So not sure if this is an issue on Netflix's side or Apple's.

Frontier FIOS service in my area shows as a supported provider. I have an Apple TV 3 but I have not seen the Super HD symbol on anything yet.

Can someone name some movies that show as available in Super HD?

FWIW, I did notice that episodes of Burn Notice seemed to have a better picture the past few days.

Just a thought, maybe the next beta or the GM for iOS 6.1 will bring this feature. It is rumoured for this week after all...
