I did that a while ago,as i was doing for my friend Daughter,and she only watches in SD on an ipad,but starting watching a bit last night,and Panasonic 4K player.upscales Netflix,so not a to bad picture.If it starts looking poor I'll be dropping my UHD sub to a lower level.
Already have, cancelled it the other day. I have no issue with the principal of what they are doing, but to not reduce subscription charges is just robbery. What's to say they "forget" to revert the bitrate to what it was? ISPs have already said there's plenty of bandwidth to cope.Just had a long winded online chat with a Netflix rep. No one will receive a refund for degradation of service. So there you have it.... Vote with your wallet.
Top tier plan running on a 330Meg FTTP
Last bit of chat:-
you will continue to get the level of service you have paid for (4K, HD, etc.) but at a lower bitrate. Some members may see a reduction in video quality, while others may not notice any changes at all. Members can continue watching on the same number of screens their plan allows.
We immediately developed, tested and deployed a way to reduce Netflix’s traffic on these networks by 25% - starting with Italy and Spain, which were experiencing the biggest impact. Within 48 hours, we’d hit that goal and we’re now deploying this across the rest of Europe and the UK.
In normal circumstances, we have many (sometimes dozens) of different streams for a single title within each resolution. In Europe, for the next 30 days, within each category we’ve simply removed the highest bandwidth streams. If you are particularly tuned into video quality you may notice a very slight decrease in quality within each resolution. But you will still get the video quality you paid for
Our network is key to keeping you connected and is built to support the ‘evening peak’, when most of you are watching Netflix whilst doing the online shop, and the kids are on TikTok. This roughly amounts to at least ten times the typical daytime demand, so we’re confident that we can keep you doing things you need to, when you want to do them.
Hi mateDoes this affect Dolby Vision? I'm sure my Samsung TV used to display Dolby Vision in the corner when first playing content with Dolby Vision but it doesn't now. Amazon content with HDR still has an icon that appears saying HDR for a few seconds in the corner of the screen.
