Optimum Online high-speed Internet customers are now enjoying the nation’s best and fastest Netflix viewing experience from any major ISP. Earlier today, Netflix released its January ISP Rankings which underscore a superior Netflix experience for Optimum customers. Optimum has a direct network connection with Netflix that delivers the highest quality video possible and access to Netflix Super HD and 3D content not available from its competitors.
“The highest-quality Netflix experience from any major ISP is on Optimum,” said Gemma Toner, senior vice president of broadband product management for Cablevision. “We have a direct connection with the online video provider that ensures superior viewing and more extensive content than any of our competitors can deliver. The most recent Netflix ISP rankings make it clear, if you live in this market and you use Netflix, the top choice is Optimum.”
Netflix ISP rankings are based on the average speed for Netflix streams among ISPs across the nation. Notably, Optimum’s ranking reflects Netflix video streams delivered over both Optimum Online’s wired service and Optimum WiFi – the nation’s largest WiFi network with more than 70,000 indoor and outdoor hotspots available to Optimum Online customers as an additional free benefit of their wired home or business service.
Optimum joined Open Connect, Netflix’s video content delivery network, to establish a direct local connection to Netflix’s distribution network and move Netflix’s video library within the Cablevision network. In the New York metropolitan area, Netflix Super HD content and 3D titles are only available to Optimum customers, as a result of participation in Open Connect. Netflix offers a broad selection of TV shows and movies in Super HD, the best Netflix 1080p quality available. A complete list of devices that support Super HD content is available on the Netflix website.
