Come on! Don’t make a “huge mistake” and miss the return of Arrested Development on Netflix in the best HD quality with Optimum. When one of America’s favorite dysfunctional families returns for a much-anticipated fourth season on May 26, Optimum is the only major ISP to give customers the best and fastest Netflix viewing experience available in the tri-state area.
Optimum established a direct network connection to Netflix that delivers the highest HD quality video including Netflix Original Series House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, Arrested Development and the upcoming Orange is the New Black in Netflix Super HD, the best experience delivered by Netflix. Optimum is consistently named as the top-ranking major Internet service provider in the country on the Netflix ISP Speed Index, underscoring a superior Netflix experience for Optimum customers. The 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 and most-advanced WiFi network. With more than 80,000 indoor and outdoor hotspots available, Optimum Online customers enjoy WiFi as an additional free benefit of their Internet service.
“For all of our customers who love Arrested Development, beginning May 26 they can catch up with the Bluth family using the best quality Netflix experience in our area,” said Gemma Toner, senior vice president of broadband product management for Cablevision. “Optimum is simply the best way to enjoy Netflix. Our direct network connection delivers the fastest Netflix experience and access to entertainment not available from other providers like FiOS and DirecTV, including 3D titles and Super HD content, like Netflix Original Series. The Netflix ISP rankings make it clear, if you use Netflix and live in our market, the best choice for viewing is Optimum.”
Arrested Development is the comedy about a wealthy family that lost everything, and the son who had no choice but to keep them all together. The Emmy® Award and Golden Globe®-winning series that taught viewers about “never nude syndrome,” spread a dangerous amount of misinformation about maritime law, and reminded everyone “that's why you always leave a note” is back for season four. Optimum customers have access to all seasons of Arrested Development in Super HD.
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 to the Optimum network for the fastest delivery. In the New York metropolitan area, Netflix Super HD content and 3D titles are available to Optimum customers. Netflix offers a broad selection of TV shows and movies in Super HD, the best Netflix 1080p quality available.
Optimum Online offers gold standard high-speed Internet service, offering customers blazing fast speeds, unsurpassed reliability and value. Optimum provides customers with three levels of high-speed Internet service including Optimum Online, delivering speeds of up to 15 Mbps downstream and 2 Mbps upstream, Optimum Online Boost Plus, delivering speeds of up to 50 Mbps downstream and 8 Mbps upstream, and Optimum Online Ultra, delivering speeds of up to 101 Mbps downstream and 15 Mbps upstream.
