Netflix video quality and data usage

On 15/06/2012, in How To, by Norman Dean

If you are using a data usage capped service like Exede you may want to reduce the quality of your streaming Netflix movies so you don’t use as much of your precious data usage allowance.



Here’s how:

Log-into your Netflix account -> Select “Your Account & Help” (top right)

Scroll down and select “Manage video quality” (under Settings)

Select the appropriate quality level.

Here are the data usage numbers per quality level:

 (up to 0.3 GB per hour)

 (up to 0.7 GB per hour)

 (up to 2.3 GB per hour for HD)
