A video of high resolution will use more data for the download than a video with a low resolution. You can change Netflix’s settings from your browser to stay in control of how much data is used. You can choose low setting where you use up to 0.3 GB. The medium setting uses up to 0.7 GB, and the high setting uses up to 7GB. Standard definition uses up to 1GB, high definition uses up to 3GB and 4K uses up to 7GB. Whereas on a mobile device you can change a Netflix setting to Wi-Fi only. This is so that all the content that you stream won’t affect your data.
