If Stream Saver is turned on, data speeds for content that is recognized as higher definition video will be capped at 1.5 Mbps, which generally is equivalent to Standard Definition quality, similar to DVD (about 480p).
How much data you use when you watch video on your smartphone or tablet will vary, one important factor being video resolution. A typical 90 minute HD movie uses 1.25-2.5GB of data. With Stream Saver on, watching the same movie in SD uses no more than 1GB, saving between 250MB – 1.5GB. HD is excellent for viewing TV at home but when you stream on a smartphone or tablet, SD quality looks great and uses less data so you can surf more, play harder, and enjoy more of what you love on your smartphone or tablet.
Stream Saver cannot identify all videos, and there are multiple factors that can also impact how much more video can be watched such as what resolution you usually watch in, app settings, stream source, network traffic, etc.
No. Stream Saver is designed to identify streaming video content so that data speed and resolution of higher definition video can be adjusted to Standard Definition quality (about 480p). This allows customers to stream more video while using the same amount of data. Stream Saver will not apply to content it cannot identify as video. Additionally, your ability to stream and the resolution of video can be affected by other factors.
Stream Saver works on wireless devices that have the capability to stream video content, including: smartphones, tablets, Wireless Home Internet, and hotspots. Exceptions include devices that cannot stream video.
GoPhone Customers: Stream Saver works on wireless devices that have the capability to stream video content, including: smartphones, tablets, Wireless Home Phone & Internet, feature phones, wearables and mobile hotspots. Exceptions include SpareOne Emergency Phone and Wireless Home Phone customers.
Stream Saver may not be able to recognize all video content, and any unrecognized higher resolution video will continue to stream at its normal speed and resolution. We are continuously working to improve the ability for Stream Saver to identify video content so that we can add video streaming sources. We will begin to list compatible video content providers as we are able to identify them.
Stream Saver only applies to video streamed over the cellular network. Video streamed over Wi-Fi is not affected.
