Re: i just wabt my Service Cancelled. I was Lied Too!!!!

Amanda has offered you the 50/50 Ultra Plan, if that isn't enough data for you then satellite internet will not work for you. 

At low definition of 300 MB per hour 50 GB will provide over 150 hours of streaming per month.

If I wanted to watch a bunch of on demand programs I'd take that deal, no doubt.

Five hours of streaming per day is a lot of viewing. She does mention "other shows" besides Netflix. I'd bet those shows are being streamed in something other than low or standard definition.

Smart TVs will also eat data in the background updating the apps and firmware.

No doubt.  I know some offer definition adjustments, but others don't.  Even if she takes the offer to upgrade to the  50GB plan, she'll still have to be careful and watch her data. 

I think that even if I had unlimited FIOS or something I wouldn't watch a lot of on demand programming.  I find it hard enough to find the time to watch what's on now.  LOL.  Maybe an occasional movie, but I could do that now.  I received some tokens for something and it's enough to watch a few high def movies, but again, I have enough to watch for now.

Bottom line, satellite internet can not replace cable or satellite TV as sole source for movie and TV viewing.

Newby here wondering how to lower the resolution setting on Netflix and other services.

Any help would be appreciated.

You can go there to find out how. 


That's just for Netflix.  Other services have their own ways, but you normally have to do it at the provider's end, not at yours.

Can take 8 hours for the change to take effect with Netflix. Be careful with Amazon Prime, they don't have a way to set it, much is sent in HD.
