(1) SD quality 3000 kbps - all ProSiebenSat1 and RTL channels which are available only with a Premium subscription for our German users. They are broadcasted in higher SD quality but due to licensing reasons not in HD. In our Swiss offer also private channels are in HD.
(2) HD quality 5000 kbps - most of HD channels which are available only with Premium subscription.
Why is the performance per channel sometimes different ?
The channels are all in the same format. If you thus experience differences between certain channels, the following are likely to be the cause:
- Your current internet connection.
CPU load has an impact on a fluid picture. A lot of programs run tasks in the background on your device.
The player in use. This in turn depends on the combination of operating system and browser.
Please also note that the start up time for HD and SD channels can vary. The SD channels require less data volume to start up than the HD channel and thus, the SD channels can start faster at times.
