How to adjust (downgrade) your streaming playback settings

In this short blog we provide you with the correct links to adjust (and preferably downgrade) your streaming playback settings. Most streaming suppliers adjust their streaming quality automatically towards the best fit for your scream. So, if your television enables Ultra HD and the streaming supplier offers Ultra HD – and also your internet connection can handle it, you will see Ultra HD. With the links below you can adjust this.

And let us be clear – of course we love an impressive experience with awesome sound and image quality. But did you know that – according to Netflix – you will use between the 3 & 7 (!) gigabytes an hour if you stream in best quality. In low quality this is 0.3 gigabytes an hour. So make a conscious choice. With the links below you can!

Most shows and movies are available in high definition (HD). Manual video quality settings are not currently available.”
