- Video Quality & Bandwidth Capping
We offer several options for video playback quality and data usage on Showmax. Please note that the video quality setting you choose will impact how much data you use, and vice versa.
If you want to save data, we offer settings that use as low as 100MB per hour. With three different data savings options, and an "unlimited" setting, you have full control over your video quality and data usage.
To manage your video quality and data on the web:
In the player, click on the settings icon, go to "Bandwidth Capping", and select the option you want to use.
To manage your video quality and data on Android and iOS:
