Streaming Services thread

All Disney+ titles gone from Hotstar. Hotstar says yesterday was just beta test for launch on March 29th.

So it might be too early to give praise to Hotstar. They might still charge extra for Disney content.

The Rise of Skywalker available on digital platforms but not on Disney+. 

 

Quote

The Rise of Skywalker will not be streaming on Disney Plus either today or Tuesday. A Lucasfilm representative told The Verge there is no update on a Disney Plus streaming date at this time.

Hotstar seems to have added live Channels to android tv as well so all star Channels are now available which was only in Mobile earlier 
It was available for very long time. I watch football in Hotstar app.

So I am having an issue with Netflix on my Sony Android TV. All the shows work fine, 4k or 1080p as per availablity on my 150mbps connection. But when I stream Friends, it streams at around 360-480p. 

Sometimes one of the episodes loads like others 10-20-99% and gives full quality otherwise it's 1-2-3-10-100% and I get less quality. This seems like a latency issue but seems bizzare that it's only happening with Friends. Does anyone else experience this? I don't think Netflix would have caches just Friends on a whole different server.

Yeah. Happening with me as well. Suddenly streaming quality drops from 4k to 720p or lower. I am on a 500 mbps connection. Never ever happened before. 

 

Looks like they are optimizing bitrate and even resolution like in Europe.

Started happening way before.

Only happening with Friends, not any other shows.

I'm seeing it with multiple shows. Fast.com shows speeds upwards of 450mbps

Netflix, Amazon and Youtube. All three have reduced their quality because the European Union's Industry chief asked them to do so to prevent traffic overload. 

They want to keep the bandwidth free and avoid any potential hiccups in their infrastructure, streaming services didn't make this decision by their own self.

Thats insane. I'm on a 50 mbps connection, and that usually never gives me problems.

What do you need 500 mbps for? :huh:
