The goal of the Netflix Open Connect program is to provide our millions of Netflix subscribers the highest-quality viewing experience possible. We achieve this goal by partnering with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to deliver our content more efficiently. We partner with hundreds of ISPs to localize substantial amounts of traffic with Open Connect Appliance embedded deployments, and we have an open peering policy at our interconnection locations. If you are an ISP with a substantial amount of Netflix traffic, review this information to learn more about the program.

For other content providers or for those who are simply curious, we share the hardware design and open source software components of our embedded appliances. These designs might be helpful for other providers of large media files, and they are very cost efficient. We welcome commentary and improvements, which will be shared with the community with the goal of a faster, less-expensive internet for all.
