MTS offers direct access to Netflix
 
MTS becomes only Manitoba television provider to offer direct access to Netflix

MTS announced today that customers will now be able to access Netflix, directly on MTS Ultimate TV. MTS becomes the only television provider in Manitoba to offer the streaming service on set-top boxes, which removes the hassle of having to switch video inputs or purchase additional hardware.

Customers will now be able to access Netflix’s entire catalogue of TV shows and movies on channels 55 and 1055 or by pressing the interactive button on their remote. Viewers will still pay Netflix directly to watch their service.

Manitobans who don’t currently have a Netflix account can visit netflix.com/MTS to sign up for a one month free trial period.

Telus Optik and Bell Fibe and FibreOP already offer this service in their territories.

Reported issues which may also apply to MTS:
1. Menus may be slow depending on how old your STB is.
2. Sound is stereo only (not 5.1)
3. HD is limited to 720P
4. You may have to login to Netflix each time you use it.

Interesting, hope that means there is a Netflix node at MTS as well.

Are those "reported issues" only on MTS, or are they limitations of the Netflix service?

@dschell_2000 those are issues reported on other providers. I don't know if Netflix has updated their app to resolve them.
