Internet Connection Speed Recommendations by NETFLIX

Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix. 0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed 1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality 25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality You can do a speed test to check your current Internet speed. I believe that Internet speeds will vary depending on the load on your ISP and the load on the server (Netflix in this case), so you will probably want a faster connection than Netlix specifies. to avoid spooling of your streaming video (My opinion).

HD Video Quality

Movies and TV shows that are available in high definition will play in 720p or better with a fast enough Internet connection. To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have an HD plan, then set your video quality setting to High in the Playback Settings for your account.

Netflix Bandwidth Usage

Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your Internet service, you can Manage Bandwidth Usage by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.
