How you can control the amount of data used by Netflix

Streaming a movie or an episode from your favourite show has become a daily routine. Hours and hours spent on Netflix have led most people to wonder

How much data does Netflix use?

To answer this question, we are going to tell you about the data usage of Netflix and how to spend less data while watching!

How much data does Netflix use?

  • Standard: Up to 1GB per hour
  • HD: Up to 3GB per hour
  • 4K Ultra HD: Up to 7GB per hour 

Imagine a person, let’s call her A, binge-watches one whole series with eight episodes. Each episode is at least 50 minutes long. She will spend at least 8GB to 56GB per series! 

Downloading the movies or episodes won’t help that much. It takes the same amount of data to download the content, to retrieve the information and et cetera. You also have to make sure that you have enough storage space on your phone. 

It is a hassle, but we always have solutions for you. There are ways for you to control the data usage from Netflix!

How can I control how much data Netflix uses?

We completely understand that spending vast amounts of data to watch your favourite movies or TV shows is not what you had in mind. Netflix offers its users four mobile data usage settings to choose from:

1. Automatic

This feature allows Netflix to balance data usage with excellent video quality to compress the hours spent per GB. Using this mode, you will be able to watch about 4 hours per GB.

2. Wi-Fi Only

This mode will only allow Wi-Fi connection as a way for you to stream your videos. 

3. Save Data

It probably sounds similar to Automatic Mode, but this mode allows you to stream up to 6 hours per GB. This mode reduces the quality of the content you’re watching to the bare minimum to suppress the data.

4. Maximum Data

Netflix recommends this mode just for those with unlimited data plans. This mode allows the users to stream any content on Netflix at the highest quality possible, depending on your subscription.
