Manage Bandwidth Usage
If you are interested in setting a limit on how much data our service will use, there are a couple of ways to control Netflix's bandwidth usage while still enjoying the service.
Adjust Data Usage Settings
To adjust Netflix' playback settings, navigate to Your Account and click Playback Settings. This will allow you to reduce the amount of data you consume when playing movies and TV shows on Netflix.
There are 4 data usage settings to choose from:
- Low (uses up to 0.3 GB per hour)
- Medium (uses up to 0.7 GB per hour)
- High (uses up to 1 GB per hour, up to 2.8 GB per hour if watching HD, or up to 4.7 GB per hour if watching 3D)
- Auto (adjusts itself automatically to deliver the highest possible quality, based on your current internet connection speed)
See our Internet Connection Speed Recommendations for more information about how fast your connection must be to stream in each quality level.
