BlueSky Netflix, VOD or Apps?

Is watching Netflix from the BlueSky On Demand (VOD) menu different than from the app section in BlueSky?

I ask this question taking into consideration the source of the streaming.

Is the VOD version streaming like other VOD  titles?

Is looking at Netflix via the app section more like watching Netflix over a streaming device via wifi?

Does the BlueSky box actually have wifi streaming capabilities?

Finally, I have been looking at Netflix from a few different sources, VOD, BlueSky Apps section, Apple TV and now though my new TV Apps which is bringing in HDR. The HDR streams look pretty good, but the VOD source is no slouch either. My Apple TV is not 4K HDR and the picture looks fine, some moire typical of streaming sources.

Hey rickatk,

Thank you for reaching out! If you bring up a Netflix title through the On Demand screen, it will still open up the Netflix app to access the content. VOD streaming titles will be through Shaw servers and any Netflix titles will be through the Netflix servers on an internet connection through the BlueSky TV box. The BlueSky TV box has an internal internet connection to access Netflix and other apps. Hope that helps!

Hi Tony:

Your reply was very helpful. I assume the “Netflix and other apps” are connected by and internal mechanism over coaxial rather than some sort of BlueSky terminal box WiFi. Such a connection for future apps and 4K sounds very promising.
