Netflix has announced its new Super HD 1080p content service along with 3D video streaming exclusively for U.S. customers. The new service features a better quality video than its regular HD offering.
The Super HD requires an Internet connection speed of at least 6 MB per second and it will use up to 2.7 GB of data per hour. While the 3D content requires a stable connection and uses only up to 5 GB of data in one hour.

It seems Canada might hold some features, especially 3D video streaming, but the amount of data usage is not exactly ideal for the Internet landscape in the country.
There will not be any issue for Netflix subscribers in the U.S., as most internet providers offer unlimited or hundreds of GB data per month. But in Canada, it is totally a different issue -- getting higher bandwidth data will cost a significant amount of money. Also, all internet providers support Super HD.
