Netflix bumps video streaming in Europe to pre-coronavirus quality (yay, 4K)
Nobody has an idea when the coronavirus pandemic will end, or what lays ahead of us, but one thing’s for sure: Netflix seems to be gradually upping its streaming quality in Europe back to 4K. Whew, what a huge relief that nobody will have to endure sub-par viewing experiences any longer.
So far, the change has been noticed in Denmark, Norway, and Germany, but it appears Netflix is opting for a gradual rollout. “Please note, we are working with ISPs to help increase capacity,” Netflix said in a statement. “In the last month alone we have added four times the normal capacity. As conditions improve we will lift these limitations.”
So, don’t worry: if nothing goes terribly wrong, you’ll be back to crispy video quality soon enough.
