Netflix HD Video

To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have an HD plan, then set your video quality setting to High or Auto. Titles will play in HD as long as you have a connection speed of 5.0 megabits per second or faster.

Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your Internet service, you can Manage Bandwidth Usage by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.
