Netflix is compromising on quality due to Coronovirus crisis.  According to BBC reports Netflix is reducing its streaming quality in the UK for the next 30 days because of current Coronavirus situation. Neflix has agreed to reduce its streaming quality in United Kingdom.

According to CNNreports, the European Union is advising Netflix and other popular streaming services to reduce their streaming quality from HD to SD during global coronavirus pandemic. Commissioner Thierry Breton said: “all have a joint responsibility to take steps to ensure the smooth functioning of the internet during the battle against the virus propagation.”

Therefore, it is necessary for Netflix to reduce its quality in order to save valuable resources for meaningful purposes. Netflix has agreed to remove its HD (high definition streaming service) to SD (standard definition) during Coronavirus crisis.

Netflix is known for high definition streaming but the company has to reduce its quality in order to save valuable internet resources.
