Las Vegas -- Cablevision Systems announced a deal with Netflix to pipe Internet video directly into the MSO's network, which will let the operator's subscribers access high-bandwidth content including "Super HD" and 3DTV content from Netflix.
Cablevision is participating in Netflix's Open Connect private content delivery network, which it launched last year.
"Optimum is committed to providing the highest-quality TV, phone and Internet to our customers, and our new partnership with Netflix supports this critical objective," Cablevision president and CEO James Dolan said in a statement. "With Open Connect, we are establishing a direct local connection with Netflix that delivers a higher-quality Netflix viewing experience for Optimum customers than Verizon or AT&T can provide, including access to new Netflix Super HD and 3D TV shows and movies."
