When you stream films and series on Netflix, you want to enjoy the content in the best possible picture quality as long as your internet connection allows it. In the Netflix settings you can quickly change the picture quality for playback on the TV, game console or set-up box. We’ll tell you how it works.

In addition to HD content, Netflix now also offers a large number of films and series in 4K (optionally also with HDR support). The picture quality depends on your Netflix subscription on the one hand and your internet speed on the other.

If you enjoy watching Netflix on your smartphone or tablet, you’re probably familiar with the download function. This allows you to download films and series and watch them offline on the go. Here’s how to change the download quality from the Netflix app:

  1. Open the Netflix app.
  2. Tap on your profile and on “App settings”.
  3. Under Downloads, tap Video Quality.

If you choose “Standard”, the download is much faster, you use less memory on your device and you use less data volume if you do not download the video via WLAN. However, the picture quality is not HD. If you select “Higher”, you can also enjoy Netflix in HD on the go. At the same time, the download on your device takes longer. You will also need more memory on your device and may use more data.
