Streaming 3d Movies On Netflix

3D titles on Netflix aren’t as commonplace as one might hope. In fact, its library of titles is extremely limited and if Netflix is going to be your only source of watching 3D content, we’d suggest saving the cash instead and investing in a good 4K television. The 4K library is far more comprehensive and Netflix has a strategy of growing it over the next few years.

Firstly, you’ll need to be based in the US as 3D is only currently available there.

  • Secondly, you’ll need a compatible 3D television set. These aren’t listed but most new 3D televisions sold at the moment are compatible.

  • Naturally, you’ll need a good internet connection too as you’re streaming multiple layers of the movie/show at once.

  • We have absolutely no idea. When we asked a Netflix representative they simply said it’s not on their current roadmap but to keep an eye out for an announcement regarding it on their social media channels.

  • Here's a happy fact: 3D-capable HDTVs now cost little more than their non-3D counterparts.

  • Here's another happy fact: 3D-capable Blu-ray players now cost little more than their non-3D counterparts.

And, finally, a sad fact: You can't rent 3D movies from Netflix. Or your local Redbox kiosk. Nor can you stream or download them from Amazon, Netflix, or iTunes. What good is the gear if there's no content? Turns out there are a few sources that can deliver 3D goodness to your home, either through the mail or over the Interwebs. Here are your options:. If there's a movie that's been released on 3D Blu-ray, chances are good will have it.

This movies-by-mail service charges between $4.99 and $7.99 for most rentals, two-way postage included.
After you receive your disc, you have seven days to watch the movie.

  • If it's not postmarked by that seventh day, the service will charge an extra $2 per day until you send it back.

  • Until Netflix and/or Redbox get their 3D act together, this is arguably the best and most affordable way to obtain 3D Blu-ray movies.

  • I found about two dozen recent 3D releases available for rental, including "Captain America," "Hugo," "Happy Feet 2," and "Immortals."

  • Each one will cost you $6.99. (Comcast also offers a few channels that provide 24/7 3D content, including ESPN 3D.).

  • Sony PlayStation NetworkThe Sony PlayStation 3 might just be the ultimate 3D-TV companion.

  • It's not only a 3D-capable Blu-ray player, but also a movie streamer that can pull content from both Sony's library (which includes a smattering of 3D movies and games) and Vudu (see below).

I don't own a PS3, so I don't have pricing or selection info. (E-mails to Sony's PR department went unanswered.) If you're a PS3 user, perhaps you can share some details in the comments. VuduThis Wal-Mart-owned movie-streaming service has yet to really catch on against the likes of Amazon and Netflix, but it currently has one of the largest 3D-movie catalogs anywhere -- an impressive 50 titles at last count.

Unfortunately, many of the titles are available only for purchase, with prices typically set at $21.99.

And a lot of the best 3D flicks aren't there, including "Despicable Me" and "Hugo." For my money, the smart way to enjoy 3D at home is to rent or buy 3D Blu-ray discs. That affords you not only the best picture and sound quality, but also the widest selection.
