Realized I hadn't tried my Panasonic 3D smart-TV NF app, but no, I've got the old first-generation app that doesn't even do subtitles.
So I went back and tried the PS3 again (which automatically adjusts picture quality for streaming speed) and went damn-the-torpedoes ahead with the "Too slow for 3D" message--The file loaded up to 63%, spun around a bit, slowly took a minute or two to load up to 100%, and then gave me four to five minutes of "The Hole" and "Legends of Flight: IMAX" in nice respectable 720p-3D at a stretch (about as well as I do on Vudu's HD stream setting) before it had to reload again.
I probably wouldn't be able to watch a whole movie at one sitting this way, but taking it in fifteen or twenty minute pieces, with "gaps" to rest my eyes, is more my speed.
So, on a purely technical basis, it CAN be done on a "normal" connection, you just have to be patient and willing to make a few sacrifices.
And if there's one thing 3DTV owners know, it's patience, persecution and sacrifice.
