From The Financial Times they assure that the European Union has contacted Netflix, YouTube and other streaming content service platforms to consider temporarily reducing the quality of audiovisual content in order to avoid collapses and saturation of the network.

For many users this seems an excessive measure, as they would not like to lose quality and user experience in a service they have already paid for. But on the other hand, it is a fairly reasonable request considering that millions and millions of users are confined to their homes after the declaration of the state of emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic.

As an alternative solution, we at iPadízate think that the most natural (and supportive) thing would be for this type of platform -which generates billions in revenue each year- to sacrifice and consider a reduction in the cost of their subscription plans and eliminate the HD quality option.
