Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Really Does Prefer Internet Explorer

netflix inc (NASDAQ: NFLX)

Netflix, Inc. 1080p HD streaming is limited in browsers, so if you thought you were getting full HD then check again. Citing Netflix support, a report from BGR relays that resolution up to 720p only is supported on Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera browsers. It means that users on IE, Microsoft Edge or Safari can stream video content up to 1080p.

Not all browsers support full HD

It is easy for viewers to see what resolution of video they’re watching on places like YouTube, but it is a bit of a mystery when they need to figure it out on Netflix. It is not easy to tell whether the episode being watched is really in full HD or not. It is possible that even a video quality snob may not be able to differentiate between a 720p or full HD.

On its support page, Netflix, Inc. notes that the viewers can stream in HD only if their Internet supports 5 megabits per second or more. It has noted the following resolutions for the various browsers: Google Chrome up to 720p, IE up to 1080p, Microsoft Edge up to 1080p, Mozilla Firefox up to 720p, Opera up to 720p, and Safari up to 1080p on Mac OS x 10.10.3 or later

Viewers won’t be able to tell the difference if they are viewing Netflix on laptops, but if the user makes use of a big slick monitor or connects laptop to the TV, then they won’t get the real quality.

Netflix 4k content not exclusive anymore

Along with this full HD thing, there is one more front that you may get disappointed. If you thought you were paying for the exclusive 4k content, then there is a bad news for you – the exclusive 4k content of Netflix and Amazon is now within the reach of pirates.

High-quality 4K resolution rips were almost non-existent until now, but there are several new releases from various groups suggesting that pirates have now got access to 4k movies and TV shows, says a recent report from TorrentFreak.

The first 4K Netflix, Inc. leak surfaced earlier this year, but there was silence after it. Then more such releases started appearing online, it was a major change suggesting the lost of exclusivity to the hackers.
