Netflix

Watching Netflix uses about 1 GB of data per hour for each stream of standard definition video, and up to 3 GB per hour for each stream of HD video.

Adjust your data usage settings

Adjusting the data usage settings for your account is the easiest way to reduce the amount of bandwidth used while watching Netflix. There are 4 data usage settings to choose from, each estimate below is per stream:

  • Low (0.3 GB per hour)
  • Medium (SD: 0.7 GB per hour)
  • High (best video quality, up to 3 GB per hour for HD, 7 GB per hour for Ultra HD)
  • Auto (adjusts automatically to deliver the highest possible quality, based on your current internet connection speed)

We recommend selecting the Low setting. Please follow the following steps to change your settings:

  1. Log into your Netflix account using a computer
  2. Once you're logged in, put your mouse over your account name at the top right of the page, and click on Your Account

  3. Click on Playback Settings

  4. Click on Low and Save your changes

It can take up to 8 hours for these changes to take affect.
