[Slashdot] - Netflix Is Starting To Restore Normal Streaming Quality In Parts of Europe

Recommended Posts

Netflix is working to restore streaming quality in various European countries following government requests for the company to reduce bandwidth usage out of fear that it was putting too much stress on broadband connections. The Verge reports: People in Denmark, Norway, Germany, and other countries reported noticing an uptick in streaming bitrate, according to FlatpanelsHD. Netflix confirmed to the website that it is "working with ISPs to help increase capacity." The company did not say which countries have restored bitrate for higher-quality streaming and which ones haven't. "In the last month alone we have added four times the normal capacity," a spokesperson told FlatpanelsHD. "As conditions improve we will lift these limitations." Other streaming services will likely follow suit, with some already reportedly upping the streaming quality. Apple Insider reports that Apple restored higher bitrates to increase streaming quality for people using Apple TV Plus late last month.
