Nothing beats that soothing feeling of snuggling up on the couch, sipping a cup of chamomile tea while watching your favorite movie or tv show on Netflix. For sure, Netflix is pretty simple for a lot of users, but not everyone knows that you can take your next Netflix video streaming to the next level.
Netflix.ca says, “Watching TV shows or movies on Netflix uses about 1 GB of data per hour for each stream of standard definition video, and up to 3 GB per hour for each stream of HD video.” With that in mind, it is important to know and understand which is the proper Xplornet package to view Netflix movies and how much data your internet service package has to support your movie marathon habits.
To determine which Xplornet package to view Netflix movies, you need to understand first how to stay in control of your data usage. Having said that, it is also important to note that with Netflix, you have the option to choose video quality from the web browser. They offer four levels of video quality. First, the default setting “Auto”, will automatically adjust the quality but it would highly depend on your current internet speed. “Low” uses 0.3 GB per hour, “Medium” uses 0.7 GB per hour and “High” uses 3 GB per hour for HD and 7 GB per hour for Ultra HD.*
“Playback Settings” would also allow you to manually select video quality across your platforms then choose from the levels mentioned earlier (Auto, Low, Medium, and High). Also, Netflix now has a new feature called Download Now, Watch Later. This helps a bunch of users to save a lot of data. You can even download those movies to your iOS or Android devices and watch it at a later time, even if you no longer have an Internet connection.
So, which is really the right Xplornet package to View Netflix Movies? Well, the good news is that Xplornet will recommend you the internet service package according to the number of people in your household, your Internet needs, and area. For example, if there are 6 browsing, gaming, and download-happy family members, you may need the LTE-25 package which has a download speed of up to 25 Mbps.
