Nowadays, a good portion of video streaming services offer different viewing qualities. Quality usually correlates with resolution and every platform, with the exception of HBO and Prime Video, allows us to choose the one that suits us best so as not to cause a gap in our data rate. And in this article Let’s see the steps to follow in each of them.
Disney+, Apple TV+, and Netflix (we’ll now see to some extent why) all allow us to control the quality of the video we watch while streaming. Be warned, it’s not about managing the quality of downloads, which is a different section. here it is about Manage the decision so as not to eat the data rate, especially if we are connected to a mobile network.
They are all particularly easy to configure, but of them all, Disney+ is the one that provides the access I think is the easiest. Simply access the Disney+ web page and Find your avatar or profile icon which usually appears in the upper right area.
If we click on it, we will see a drop-down list with different options from which we will choose Application settings. This menu opens the way to three different options, each of which also provides an estimate of how much data is consumed:
- automatic– Play in the highest possible quality up to 4K UHD (4.2Gb/h)
- Moderate: Use less data and play up to HD quality (1.2 GB/hour)
- Saving data: Use minimum data and reboot with SD quality (0.6 GB/hour)
