Netflix and YouTube are cutting video quality

Netflix and YouTube have agreed to cut video streaming quality to alleviate the burden on broadband networks caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

Following a plea from the EU, video content streamed via YouTube will only be available in standard definition for the next 30 days, as opposed to high definition or 4K. Netflix has said it will decrease its streaming bitrates for an equivalent period, reducing the platform’s data consumption by 25%.
