Bummer. I hope it comes back. I always had an issue with Netflix 3D (and wish they would do SBS/OU instead of FP, but then it'd be limited to 720p) but it was a nice option to have.

I hadn't tried it yet on my 3D BR Player yet... Had hoped it might be supported there as it wasn't, from what I could tell, supported on my Roku...

Watched a few episodes on Breaking Bad on Netflix last night. Have my account set to HD. A blurry, soupy mess. Started watching the final season on Vudu. Absolutely perfect picture.

What is going on with my Netflix?

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

What happened to SNL? I was currently on season 23 (97/98) season and now the entire 90's is gone. And then I noticed so is all of the 80's. Only the 2000's and 2010's remain.
So I guess I'll be jumping to 2000. Unless that will soon be gone too? Man, I'm pissed. Really been enjoy the Will Ferrel years.

I have to check Hulu+ to see if they took it down there too.

The SNL rights were bought out by Yahoo, IIRC. Great.

Given how complicated the music licensing issue for SNL would've been, I'm kind of surprised it was there to begin with.

The SNLs here(Canada) on Netflix are without the musical guests.

Many of the U.S. episodes were missing them also.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

Why is season 11 of Family guy censored? I was watching the past seasons on Netflix and they were uncensored.

IIRC, sketches and monologues that used music were excised entirely, too. Some episodes were only half an hour long. They were really butchered.

Re: Netflix - News & Discussion

I have a question about Netflix streaming bitrate and staying under my family's ISP's monthly data cap.

We have the Netflix account playback setting set to middle quality Better. But during action scenes in a movie on our large screen SD tv you can see the movie needs a higher bitrate.

When you select "Best" for playback setting and when the movie is one that Netflix is capable of sending in HD, will Netflix detect via the Roku that we have a standard definition connection and stream the movie at SD bitrate ? I have not yet selected "Best" because I thought Netflix might stream at the HD bitrate to our SD television, and then we might exceed our ISP's data cap.

What do you all think is the minimum length account password that will safeguard your account from someone hacking it ? I was initially wary of signing up with Netflix because there are websites where people trade lists of user email and passwords for Netflix.
