    That's a little better- heard there were a few technical problems with it, and my TV isn't even a 'supported device'. Just hate to hear any sort of giving up on 3D, maybe it's not going to be "the next big thing" but this is still the biggest it's ever been and I want it to stay this time!

    The icons aren't up anymore, even for movies I was already in the middle of (Shock Labyrinth, Little Brother, Feeding Time)--
    And don't think ANYONE'S pinning this on "Public unacceptance of 3D"--Netflix 3D was some of the most ungodly mis-managed attempts at 3D streaming anyone could dream up. Two-thirds of their user base weren't even allowed to access it at the beginning, as they insisted that providers play along with them just to air the service--And when they took it wide, even fewer who actually HAD a compatible PS3/smart-Blu Netflix app to know it even existed had the bandwidth to play it without interruptions.

    But when it actually worked, it was, y'know, pretty good. (Oh, sure, and NOW they put up "Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away".
