Netflix to cut streaming quality in Europe for 30 days

Netflix will slightly reduce the video quality on its service in Europe for the next 30 days, to reduce the strain on internet service providers.

Demand for streaming has increased because large parts of Europe are self-isolating at home due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The video-streaming provider said lowering the picture quality would reduce Netflix data consumption by 25%. 

But movies will still be high-definition or ultra-high definition 4K.

The change will apply to the UK as well as other European countries
